Everglades National Park
A World Heritage Site – Florida’s
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 attractions in Florida. This park is unlike any other park in the world and provides a unique eco-system of tropical wetlands – “river of grass” that the Seminole Indians called Okeechobee. Today, Everglades National Park is place to observe an amazing variety of wildlife, natural beauty, and serene scenery of this tropical paradise. Over a million visitors annually visit Everglades National Park from all over the world. Everglades National Park offers hundreds of miles of hiking trails, kayaking, fishing charters, eco boat tours, watercraft rentals, nature walks, camping, wildlife tours, and a chance to witness alligators, eagles, osprey, dolphin, manatee, and the hundreds of other species that live here in the Florida Everglades. 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. Thank you for helping to preserve and protect this important resource for future generations. Inquire about Everglades National Park or add your Florida guide or business services, contact us.
