Sightseeing
AIRBOATS, NATIVE HISTORY, ALLIGATORS AND CROCODILES AWAIT. Welcome to the Everglades, South Florida’s subtropical backyard. Made up of 1.5 million acres of marshes, mangroves, and wetlands, the Everglades is home to endangered, exotic wildlife, with human habitation dating as far back as 15,000 years ago. Whether you’re biking or bird-watching, canoeing or waist-deep in marsh, a visit to this untouched oasis would get anyone looking past the humidity and into the acres of seagrass. But taking a trip into swampland doesn’t mean you have to get down and dirty. Take a guided boat tour through the marshes, immerse yourself in the Miccosukee tribe’s practices and culture, or grab a bite of a different kind of Southern home-cooking. Hint: Gator is on the menu.
