Everglades National Park
As the second largest national park in the country, after Yellowstone – the biggest one in the U.S. – the Everglades National Park was created in 1947. Environmentalists had petitioned the government to deem it a special habitat, because of its 1.5 million acres of subtropical swamp and marshes. Flowing water from Lake Okeechobee makes the ideal environment for wildlife such as crocodiles, turtles, otters, and even panthers. With the park’s wet ecosystem, you can take boat trips to spot the wildlife and enjoy the scenery.
Walt Disney World
Without a doubt, one of the most popular tourist hotspots in Florida is the world-famous Walt Disney World. This giant amusement park has something for people of all ages to enjoy and is much adored from worldwide vacationers. Not only is it a favorite for families but for adults as well. Disney character will entertain kids when they get a chance to meet or share a meal, while adults can have their own fun with thrill rides such as the famous Space mountain.
