Everglades National Park

 

Although some UK Holiday brochures offer a visit to the Everglades as a day trip it is, to my mind, too far for a day trip.  Plan to leave Mickey's Tree House early morning and stay overnight in the park.  Early pre-booking is necessary for accommodation.  We visited the Everglades in early January, the days were sunny, dry and warm and the nights cool.  Air  Boat rides are NOT available in the Park.

The Flamingo Lodge is the only lodging available in the park. It is open year-round, with 103 rooms, and 24 cottages with kitchen facilities. A restaurant and cafe are open during the winter.

Spanning the southern tip of the Florida peninsula and most of Florida Bay, Everglades National Park is the only subtropical preserve in North America. It contains both temperate and tropical plant communities, including sawgrass prairies, mangrove and cypress swamps, pinelands, and hardwood hammocks, as well as marine and estuarine environments. The park is known for its rich bird life, particularly large wading birds, such as the roseate spoonbill, wood stork, great blue heron and a variety of egrets. It is also the only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles exist side by side.

Everglades National Park has been designated a World Heritage Site, an International Biosphere Reserve, and a Wetland of International Importance.
