Glide through the Everglades and take in the amazing wildlife


EVERGLADES (WTHR) — Everglades National Park is massive. It spans 1.5 million acres and has only three entrances that are not connected.

You'll want to plan ahead and make sure you know where you are going. Once inside the park there is so much to do.

You can take a walk on the Anhinga Trail watching wildlife including many types of birds and alligators. Glide through the Everglades by tour boat or kayak for a chance to glimpse a crocodile, manatee, or dolphin. Explore the pinelands by bike, paddle amongst the mangroves on Nine-Mile Pond, or tour the historic Nike Hercules missile base.
