The Everglades

A Subtropical Wilderness

Airboats, Native history, alligators and crocodiles await.

The Everglades have been a part of Florida history for as long as Florida has had a history. More than 15,000 years ago major Native American tribes called it their home and today it's a preserved ecological system that you just can't see anywhere else. Have the eco-experience of a lifetime in the Everglades.

The Flamingo Entrance of Everglades National Park is a one-hour drive from Miami. Everglades National Park is the third-largest National Park in the Continental U.S. and the largest subtropical wilderness in the U.S. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. A visit to the Everglades Nation Park may include an airboat, a quick history lesson, camping or typical Everglades dishes like gator bites.

The Ernest Coe Visitor Center offers maps, books and information on guided boat and walking tours. Other amenities include a full-service marina, boat launching ramps, motor and non-motorized boat rentals, and camping facilities.

The natural treasures of this sublime eco-wonderland are too many to name. Scientists, ecologists, nature enthusiasts and preservationists of all kinds and from all over the world study the mostly untouched oasis of the Florida Everglades.

Your #Everglades Moments


Less than an hour south of Miami, the Everglades is an entirely different world, a river of grass. As Ranger Bob proudly shares, it is a wide open sawgrass prairie, a vast subtropical wilderness, and home to three parks, each one remarkable in its own right: Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, and Biscayne National Park. These national treasures are home to wildlife, world-famous photographer Clyde Butcher, the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians, and countless unforgettable adventures.
