The Everglades are such an important part of the Florida ecosystem, AND they are incredible to visit too! If you're wanting such an adventure, why not try Sawgrass Recreation Park, where you can take the fun airboat rides, enjoy the kids zone AND check out the exhibits on display to teach kids all about this fragile and important ecosystem!
The most popular activity at Sawgrass Recreation Park, however, is of course those Airboat Rides! There are a number of tours for you to choose from - and they start at 30 minutes in duration however they can be extended to however long you want!
There are Daytime Adventures to enjoy, as well as Nighttime Adventures which add a whole new angle as you experience the Everglades! The Nighttime Adventures last for 60 minutes, and the experienced Captain will tell you fascinating facts - like how the Seminole and panther one coexisted in this amazing area.
You will also catch glimpses of incredible wildlife - some that are endangered - as you skim across what sometimes looks like grass but is actually water! It's a great way for kids to learn about wildlife and nature, and the importance of looking after the environment too.
When you purchase a ticket to the airboat, that gets you into the exhibit areas too. Here, you can check out exhibits on amazing reptiles, the beautiful glades themselves, and the exotic wildlife that surrounds you!
Don't forget about the fun Kids Zone too! There are some animals you can actually touch as you learn about them, and definitely an experience that kids won't be forgetting anytime soon!
Amazing animal fun in an amazing part of Florida's nature, where the family can have an adventure, learn something new, experience something amazing and enjoy a great family day out - what are you waiting for?
