NATURE’S PARADISE – Head West & See the Wild Side of South Florida

You’ll want to soak up North Beach Village’s seaside ambiance and stroll our beaches, but inland, west of the Tranquilo Hotel, the expansive Florida Everglades stretches as far as the eyes can see. Bike in Shark Valley or take an air-boat ride for a thrilling tour of this primordial wilderness, where you’ll see live alligators, deer, bears, bald eagles, raccoons, armadillos, panthers, snakes, herons, hawks, vultures and more!

Before you go directly to the Everglades, plan for at least a day and visit a few places along the way. You’ll want to stop by and flutter among butterflies at Butterfly World’s aviary. This could be an informative, relaxing, and enchanting time.

You’ll also want to visit the Flamingo Gardens, where beautiful and rare vegetation, peacocks and owls will delight both, the young and old. If you want a little more excitement, take a side trip to visit the snakes and gator pits at the rustic Native Village! Your kids will love it!

While there are many tour operators, we recommend you visit Sawgrass Recreation Park and Everglades Tours or Everglades Holiday Park for safe and fun air-boat adventures!
