4) Everglades National Park
This World Heritage Site covers 2,400 square miles, making it the country’s largest sub-tropical wilderness. The habitat protects endangered species such as manatees, American crocodiles, and the Florida Panther. Since much of the park is only accessible by water, the best way to experience the Everglades is by boat. Tour the mangroves, swamplands, and grasslands via the airplane propeller powered Airboat. These boats are capable of high speeds over shallow waters, making it an easy and exciting way to get around. Other activities in the park include wildlife viewing, hiking, slogging (hiking through marshy, wet areas), boating, bird watching, canoeing & kayaking, biking, and fishing. Take a ranger guided tour and get up close and personal with some of Florida’s most fascinating creatures. It’s recommended to stay a few days to capture the full Everglades experience. Camping facilities are available inside the park.
