Explore the Florida Everglades
A large portion of the park is primitive, but visitors have ample opportunity to tour, camp and canoe through the flat and watery park. Air Boat tours let you view nature in their natural setting. Glide over a grassy river and enjoy the scenic adventures water lilies, sawgrass and cattails to name a few, and fauna (expect to see turtles, snakes, birds and alligators). Camping in the Everglades is also a tradition, and is a protected area safe for all adventures.
