Everglades National Park   
The 3rd largest national park (1.5 million acres) stretches across the southern tip of Florida. Everglades means “marshy land of tall grass.” The park’s diverse eco-system contains fresh and salt water areas, prairies, forests and swamps. It’s also home to American alligators and crocodiles, sea turtles, birds, fish and the endangered Florida panther. Make sure you have insect repellent. Lots of it! Florida City is a good base for trips to the park.
