“Henry Flagler’s bold effort to build a railroad to Key West in the early 1900s turned the remote island of Bahia Honda Key into a tropical destination. Known for its iconic Florida scenery—palm-lined beaches, gin-clear waters and magnificent sunsets—visitors to the park enjoy balmy sea breezes that caress the shores year-round. Kayaks and snorkeling gear can be rented and boat trips to the reef for snorkeling excursions are available. The park is also an excellent place to observe wading birds and shorebirds, while the Sand and Sea Nature Center introduces nature lovers to the island’s plants and animals.”

Park
“• Far away from the maddening crowd, the Everglades National Park is the ultimate choice if you want to spend a day amidst the blissful natural wonders. At our National Park, you also get the opportunity to come face to face with macaws, peacocks, and turtles. Besides, you can also spot native snakes including the Blackpine, Brooks Kingsnake, Florida Kingsnake, and Red Ratsnake here. A visit to the Everglades National Park is incomplete if you haven’t tried the following: airboat tours, wildlife shows, safari park, alligator shows along with alligator wrestling shows, just to name a few.”
