Florida - The Everglades (Chapter)
This is The Everglades chapter from Lonely Planet's Florida guidebook.
The Everglades is not just a wetland, or a swamp, or a lake, or a river, or a prairie, or a grassland - it is all of these, twisted together into a series of soft horizons, long vistas and panoramic sunsets.
- canoe or kayak into Hell's Bay Paddling Trail, a tangled morass of red creeks, slow blackwater and the heavy vegetative curtain of a preserved marsh
- help support the animal rescue operations underway at the Everglades Outpost
- restaurants and accommodation
- check out some of the best photography of the surrounding swamps, forests, beaches and sea at Big Cypress Gallery
Coverage includes: Everglades National Park, Tamiami Trail, Homestead To Flamingo Point and Biscayne National Park.
