When it comes to the Everglades, it's easy to be overwhelmed. After all, it's 734 square miles of gators, grass and swamp water. But Everglades Holiday Park is a great place to start. This famous Fort Lauderdale outpost has the fanciest fan boats you'll ever see, and they're also home to the Gator Boys of Animal Planet fame. So book a jaunt on the river of grass and learn a thing or two about our local ecosystem.
