Everglades National Park
A World Heritage Site – SW Florida Vacation Adventure
Welcome to the Everglades – a remarkable region of southwest Florida. More than one and a half million acres of land under the management of the US National Park Service makes Everglades National Park one of the most popular visitor attractions in Florida. This park is unlike any other park in the world and provides a unique eco-system of tropical wetlands – a “river of grass” that the Seminole Indians called Okeechobee. As a result of environmental circumstances, Everglades National Park is the place to observe an amazing variety of wildlife, natural beauty, and serene scenery of this tropical paradise.
With mild temperatures all year long, more than a million visitors annually visit Everglades National Park from all over the world.
A visit to Everglades National Park provides an opportunity to view unique and seldom seen wildlife in their natural environment. A Florida Everglades adventure tour, airboat tour, sightseeing, fishing, or guided eco boat tours may include a chance to witness alligators, eagles, osprey, dolphin, manatee, and hundreds of other wildlife species that live here in the Florida Everglades.
Florida’s Sea of Grass
Much of the Everglades is shallow water wetlands covered by sawgrass. Many of the species found here are protected. Be sure to observe wildlife rules and regulations.
