Finally made it to the Everglades after living in Florida for 14 years. A friend had someone visiting so we made a day trip. We went to Holiday Park since it was the closest to home. Went on an airboat ride, saw alligators and peacocks, and watched an alligator wresting show.over 4 years ago
With a plane to catch we had less than two hours to swing by Everglades on the way back from the Keys. Outside of wild animal parks and zoos, I have never seen so much big wild life, so close up, in such a short period of time. Gators of all sizes humungous to teeny tiny, birds of all sizes, fish of all sizes, just absolutely teeming.
Since I have not much experience in this saw grassy environment – thought it was amazing. And just have to really appreciate conservationists who came before us and managed to preserve as much of this wild and distinctive peninsula as they did. Thanks John Pennekamp et al. I’d absolutely like to go back and spend some real time.over 5 years ago
That’s what I said to a friend, so he led me and a few other people to a place called Holiday Park, in the Everglades. It was at night, but the convenience store that’s located there is open 24 hours. This place is kinda creepy going in, because you have to drive over this “one car at a time” bridge. So that made me nervous. Behind the store there’s peacocks and turkeys everywhere..it’s great! and R.V.‘s are camped out there. In the front there’s a lot of stray cats and racoons. Mind you this is all taking place at night..so technically we weren’t supposed to be where we went. we climbed over this wooden fence and started walking the Everglades trail. We heard boars in the sawgrass..I was scared! Walking back we spoke with a man in the convenience store. He said that besides boars, there’s brown recluses, (of course alligators), black panthers, anacondas…But before you get to the entrance bridge…this is a tip…if you ever want to see a lot of stars, pull over and park at the lake’s edge and look up!over 5 years ago
