Florida Everglades National Park


The Florida Everglades is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States and home to rare and endangered species, including the American crocodile, Florida panther, and West Indian manatee. The Everglades National Park protects over 1.5 million acres of land, making it the third largest national park in the lower 48 states. The Park offers 156 miles of canoe, kayak, and walking trails, as well as thousands of acres of shallow water flats, channels, and mangrove keys for fishing. The Everglades has been designated an International Biosphere Reserve, a World Heritage Site, and a Wetland of International Importance.

Fun Fact: Many people consider the Everglades to be a large swamp, but it is technically a slow-moving river.
