Everglades Holiday Park

Looking for a remote location, I started driving around my town, but nothing seemed interesting to me. I never thought that only an hour away from my house I would find one of the wildest and most exotic places in Florida.

When you think of Florida you think of palm trees, the beach, the sun and the good weather, but only a few would think about alligators. Close to Highway 27, which is a very lonely and old Highway, the road becomes very narrow and you don’t see a single soul around, except for a couple of strange birds and other curious animals. It’s like leaving civilization behind to enter a fascinating new world. On my visit, I saw a beautiful peacock standing under the shadow of a tree, which I attempted to capture with my borrowed LC-A.

There is no fee to enter the park and there are plenty of parking spaces close to the gift shop. There’s a pier where visitors have the chance to see the alligators swimming at the surface. Visitors can also jump in one of the guided tour boats and get deep inside the jungle to see even bigger alligators. There’s also a fun photo booth where you can take pictures pretending to be next to an alligator. There’s a campground in case you want to stay for the night to wake up and see the beautiful sunrise on the everglades. I highly recommend this place for an exciting jungle adventure. Remember: Do not feed the alligators!

    Awesome gallery. What a cool Park, but I don't think I would ever want to camp out there overnight with the gators.
