Everglades National Park Mar 27, 2013
We had an unexpected gift before having to head home, time. We found ourselves in West Palm Beach at 9 AM with a 6:30 PM flight. We decided to make the two hour drive down to the Everglades, and it was so worth it!

In all, we had about 3 hours in the park. We spent it all on the Anhinga and Gumbo Limbo trails.

The Anhinga trail is a 0.8 mile boardwalk that goes through a sawgrass marsh. It is a wildlife mecca where we saw lots of alligators, turtles, anhingas, herons, egrets, and many other birds. If you love wildlife, this is the trail for you. We got really close to multiple birds and alligators and I held my kids tight. :)

The Gumbo Limbo trail is right next to the Anhinga trail and once was much more lush. Hurricane Andrew allowed the sun to get in and now there is a lot more dead foliage. It was a good trail to learn about the climate though.

I really need more time in this park and hope to return soon.

The Everglades May 22, 2012
The Everglades are National Park on the southern tip of Florida. It is UNESCO World Heritage Site and federally protected as such. it biodiversity and stunning scenery are it's major draws. There is hiking, camping, fishing, canoeing available as well as numerous outfitters with airboats that are perfect for the marshlands that make up the Everglades. Most of the habitat is savannah and marsh but coastal areas have mangroves, estuaries, freshwater springs and hardwood forest. There is a huge number of animals that make the park home including several endangered species.

Canoeing in Everglades Naional Park Mar 04, 2008
Driving down the tar road you don't see much around you. Bushland and swamps and the odd alligator. We rented a canoe and braved the Everglades National Park. We heard lot of stories about people going missing, but I'm sure that they were just yanking our aussie chains.

When you first paddle through the water you think you are alone and then when you hit the bushes, a whole army of mosquitos start to attack. I never heard anything like it. I think I sprayed a whole bottle of insect repellent on me.

It was so totally worth it though - it was amazing.

The whole trip took just over 3 hours.

I recommend it to everyone.

Everglades National Park is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. I camped in both of the main campgrounds in the park and was quite happy with the park. They have many short trails to walk that are very informative. Also if you veer out of the way a bit there are longer trails that are very empty compared to the rest. The campgrounds are nice and very well maintained with great hosts. If you have a canoe then a larger part of the park is open to you to navigate and camp through the beautiful waterways. This is definitely a must see when visiting Florida.

This airboat tour through the Everglades in Everglades Safari Park was the best $20 I have ever spent in my life. The hours I spent at Safari Park were some of the most fun and most meaningful in my life! I still can't believe it was so cheap!!! The 20 dollar tour includes a 40 minute airboat tour through the Everglades, an alligator show (NOT alligator wrestling, but moreso a show where they teach you about alligators, with demonstrations on actual alligators), the opportunity to hold baby alligators and take pictures with them and access to a gator farm, where they have alligators and crocodiles from all over the world. I highly recommend this tour- the Everglades are gorgeous.. so gorgeous and serene that it gave me the chills. The wildlife is incredible! I saw turtles, cranes, alligators and all kinds of other animals...

Everyone there is really knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. I just can't emphasize how worth it it is to go here. It's only about a 30 minute drive out of Miami and only 20 bucks... and SO worth it that I will probably go back next time I'm in the area.
