No trip to South Florida would be complete without discovering the breathtaking beauty of the Everglades. While you'll never be able to experience the vast marshes and mangrove forests in their entirety, you'll see a lot of this natural treasure on a thrilling airboat ride. As your boat speeds through the saw grass, you'll learn about the Everglades' constantly evolving ecosystem. The area is home to many endangered species; you'll spot alligators, fish and wading birds, along with flora and fauna that can be found only in the wetlands. If you don't catch a glimpse of an alligator on the water, you'll have the chance to get up close with an interactive show offered by some tour operators.
