There are several places to turn off and see part of the Everglades. Your first stop should be the visitor center, which you’ll find right after entering the park.

Everglades National Park is one of the many attractions the Greater Miami area has to offer. There are a few things you should know before going, though. First, plan on making the day of it. I don’t recall there being many places to eat unless you like vending machines, so you’ll want to pack a lunch. Also ask where the bathrooms are. The ones that are easy to find tend to be few and far between. It’s a big park and you’ll need a car to get from one end of the park to the other. There’s one main road you drive down.

My brother in law and his wife are those fortunate "Snowbirds" who spend our winter in their home in Florida. When I joined them one January I was immediately enchanted with the apparent wealth of exotic wildlife around their home. Not just the little white egrets strutting purposefully along green verges or the brilliant red cardinal sitting in a nearby tree. I was in awe of the black and turkey vultures which moved away from me with a shuffle and a hop and the warning that a nearby strip of water could well hold an alligator. What I was yet to find was that all these were but strays. That less than a day's drive south from Sun City Centre ... Read the complete review

The Everglades River courses slowly through a large part of southern Florida. The original swamp habitat is still intact for the time being, and it's well worth a visit. For maximum enjoyment, stay on a reservation. The Seminole Indians maintain a reservation in the middle of Everglades National Park. They have native Cheekee huts to stay in, real gator dishes to eat, gator wrestling, airboat rides, and animal safaris. Besides the aligator, there are many types of animal in the Everglades, including the panther, many gazelle-family animals, and two species of buffalo-family thingies. Don't forget bug spray. Florida mosquitoes are ... Read the complete review

The Florida Everglades are basically a vast area of swamp land but they are also a very beautiful and unique place. There Everglades have not one but two national parks, and the broad spectrum of wildlife living here includes acquatic birds, wild hogs and of course many alligators. From the road you mostly see 'saw grass' the tall reeds in the swamp and many visitors choose an airboat ride to explore further. These are not for the faint hearted - they go at great speed through the saw grass, are not particularly comfortable and you are almost guaranteed to see many 'gators. However they're ideal if you want to be close up to the swamp, but beware ... Read the complete review
