The Everglades comprise of 1.5 million acres of wetland located in the south of Florida, starting with the Kissimmee River near Orlando. The nearest airport is Miami International Airport.
The Everglades National Park is home to alligators, the Florida panther and the manatee. The National Park attracts a large number of tourists every year, so finding your own Everglades holiday home can take a little more time than in other parts of Florida. Activities in the Everglades include kayaking and canoeing, trekking and bird watching. This is a fabulous place for a family holiday. There is so much to do and see that one visit is simply not enough!
The Everglades enjoy a year-round sunny climate, so renting out a holiday home for part of the year when you're not using it can pay for running costs.
Florida City in Miami-Dade County is a good base from which to explore the region, which holds many other attractions, such as Coral Castle, Everglades Alligator Farm and Biscayne National Park, a vast marine wildlife reserve. The city is home to a vibrant community of Cuban and Haitian origin, which is reflected in the cultural events hosted by Florida City every year and in the cuisine.
