Things To Do from a Florida Vacation Rental Property
Visit the Everglades Safari Park from a Florida Vacation
For some 35 years, Everglades Safari Park has provided a "river of grass" showcase, becoming one of the
Florida Everglades' largest, most complete attractions. The park offers several ways to observe the
Everglades, including an Airboat Ride, Alligator Show, and a Jungle Trail. Airboat rides are guided by
skilled narrators familiar with Everglades history, vegetation, and wildlife. The Alligator Show provides
informative, interactive opportunity to become familiar with features of American alligators as well as
other animals. A Jungle Trail leads to an Alligator Farm with more than 400 American alligators, a
crocodile exhibit, and a replica of a Chickee Village.
