Theme Park
“Everglades - most unique area to do only in south Florida, make sure you do the airboat ride that glides over swamp land, you will see plenty of gators in the wild, but it’s safe in the boat.. also most offer an alligator show. It is all the way out west, but there are tourist bus tours that will take you out there on excursion (in broward, holiday park is the closest one, but plenty others out there too)”

“Take a morning to experience the everglades. You need a car since it's far out west, rent a bike when you get there and explore the 14 mile loops in the middle of the everglades, gators and all.”

“Looking for some serious gator action? Gator Park is the premier airboat tour in the Florida Everglades to spy these fierce reptiles. Airboat rides depart every few minutes, so your Everglades experience begins the moment you arrive. We also offer private airboat tours for a more up close and personal look at the alligators.”
