Destinations Magazine - January/February 2018 - 15

Big Cypress is
recovering from
the effects of
Hurricane Irma.

recommended to access incredible backcountry sights and wildlife.

Everglades
National Park
does not have
an alligator
shortage!

When should we plan to come?

Anytime year-round, although winter
and spring visits will likely be more comfortable from a temperature standpoint.
Fall is the season for tropical storms
and hurricanes, but trying to make
long-range predictions on the possibility
of weather-related concerns is next
to impossible.
What else can we do while in the
area? Those exploring the central

and southern areas of the Everglades
should also consider a trip east to
Biscayne National Park for a stop at
the Dante Fascell Visitor Center before
an easy walk through the mangroves
along the shoreline or a boat cruise on
the coastal waters. Those heading to
or from Miami along U.S. 41 can also
visit the Miccosukee Tribal Cultural
Center, or take an airboat tour of the
Everglades wilderness operated by
park concessionaires.

A vast variety of
waterfowl make
Big Cypress their
home.

BOB HOELSCHER.

How should we plan our visits? Those

wishing to explore the Everglades in
depth will want to see all the sights
along the primary park road stretching
from the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center to
Flamingo. Don't miss the Anhinga and
Gumbo Limbo trails at Royal Palm, the
Pa-hay-okee Overlook, and Mahogany
Hammock. If time is short and only
travel along U.S. 41 is possible, stop

at the Shark Valley Visitor Center to
explore the short Bobcat Boardwalk and
Otter Cave Hammock Trail, and/or take
the two-hour guided tram tour (extra
charge) to the Observation Tower. Both
Big Cypress visitor facilities are also
along this highway, but the outstanding
Loop Road scenic drive (mostly of good
gravel construction) between Monroe
Station and Fortymile Bend is strongly

Are there lodging and dining facilities
nearby? In addition to the multitude of

choices available in Miami and Miami
Beach, those headed to the interior of the
Everglades should consider staying in
the Homestead/Florida City area, which
offers a variety of alternatives and is
particularly convenient for an added visit
to Biscayne National Park.
