Whether you’re a Florida resident or happen to live close by, spending a long weekend in the sunshine state is always at the top of the do-to list. With bright sunshine, a relaxed vibe and more sightseeing opportunities than you can possibly pack into 72-hours, It’s everything you’d ever want in a family-friendly tropical locale. But if you’ve already done your share of shopping and the beach is no longer exciting, it may be time to explore the other side of South Florida- the Everglades. If you want something to do that’s exciting and close to home, there’s nothing like Everglade tours for long weekend adventures. Journey into the state’s most treasured wetland and here’s a glimpse into what you can expect.

Experience Nature At Its Finest

Do you think you could recognize a Great Egret if you saw one up close? Amazing hunters, these incredible birds stand motionless waiting for unsuspecting prey or wade through shallow waters startling fish, frogs and other aquatic animals with a quick strike of a dagger-like bill. With an impressive wingspan, these iconic birds are just one of hundreds of amazing sights you’ll see on Everglade tours at Everglades Holiday Park. An hour-long adventure, Everglade tours make it easy to experience nature at its best, untouched and pure.

Learn While You Explore

At Everglades Holiday Park, each airboat is navigated by a professional captain who has intimate knowledge of the ecosystem and the animals who live and play in the shallow waters. Everglade tours are thrilling, but they are also a fun way to hear about the fascinating history of the Everglades and ongoing efforts to protect the wildlife. Stay entertained with incredible tales and fun facts as you glide across a river of grass stopping only to explore vegetation or visit with the animals. At the end of your tour, you can’t help but be amazed by how much you didn’t know and be awe-inspired by how breathtaking nature truly is.

Visit With the Animals

Of course, Florida’s ancestral dinosaur, the American alligator is one of the more exciting reptiles seen in the Everglades, but there are scores of colorful fish, turtles and over 16 different types of tropical snakes as well. How about locking eyes with a voracious alligator as he slithers towards the boat? Maybe you’d like to see a curious manatee poke his head up to say hello. With incredible wildlife encounters, there’s no shortage of excitement for mom, dad and the kids. And when your tour ends, you’ll visit with even more alligators as you take in a live gator show performed by Animal Planet’s “Gator Boys”.

Everglade tours are exciting, educational and pure fun from start to finish. With face-to-face animal encounters, a rejuvenating airboat ride and the chance to experience the sunshine state’s best kept secret up close and personal, Everglade tours at Everglades Holiday Park turn long weekends into unforgettable adventures.
