Experience nature at its best when you visit the Sawgrass Recreation Park. Stunning landscapes, wading birds, turtles, and alligators are all there for the viewing. Start your adventure with an airboat tour of the Florida Everglades. The boat will rev at speeds up to 40 mph, and you can catch sights of remarkable wildlife as you skim across the glassy water. Keep your eyes open and try to spot crocodiles, manatees, and maybe even the rare Florida panther.
After your boat ride, enjoy a stroll through the three exhibition areas that feature over 100 reptiles and mammals that have been adopted and rescued. Walk back in time at the Reptile Exhibit and see an original dinosaur, the Florida Alligator. If you're feeling especially brave, you can even hold a baby crocodile - a truly unforgettable experience. Don't forget to take your camera along with you! There will also be educational presentations running through the day, and you can learn about turtles, iguanas, and alligators. Before you head back, make sure to stop by the on-site food truck and try Gator Bites, tacos, burgers, and more. For more snacks, beverages, and even souvenirs, check out the Gator Emporium.
