The Everglades, Florida

Starting with the Kissimmee River near Orlando and flowing through Lake Okeechobee, all this water eventually ends up in the Everglades in the south of Florida, where it created these wetlands a long time ago.

This subtropical environment offers a wide variety of nature. Here, you will find saw grass prairie-like wetlands, cypress swamps, mangrove forests, tropical hardwood areas, pine rock land, and a marine environment.

Due to all the channels, which flow freely through this landscape, it is home to many exotic plants and the 1.5 million acres of the Everglades National Park provides more the enough space for all kinds of animals like turtles, alligators, snakes, manatees, and fish, to find a comfortable place to live.

Since there is so much diversity in landscape, there is also plenty to see and to do. Some of the activities include camping, bicycling, fishing, kayaking, hiking, bird watching, and last but not least exploring the environment.

This can be done by van, plane, airboat, or you can attend one of the many guided boat tours, guided kayak trips, native guided safaris, and/or walking tours and don't forget to pay a visit to the galleries and museums.

This magnificent place is absolutely worthy of a visit and you should consider staying for at least several days. There are plenty of accommodations nearby, but you can also opt for staying at one of the campgrounds in the park and more on the latter will follow soon!
