The Everglades

Famously dubbed the “River of Grass,” this slow-flowing marsh is one of the world’s most unique and fragile ecosystems. It's also the largest remaining natural subtropical wilderness in North America. Alligators, anhingas and even the elusive Florida panther make their home just 45 minutes west of downtown Miami. For an up-close look, visit the Everglades Outpost Wildlife Refuge or Alligator Farm near Homestead; try an airboat ride, or see the Seminole tribe’s Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum, which tells the tribe’s story, and Billie Swamp Safari, which offers a nature trail and airboat rides.
