The Everglades

United States of America
By Dmitry Petrounin Dmitry Petrounin Section editor Profile

Discover The Everglades

In the south, the Florida peninsula is covered by immense marshy areas- the Everglades. 1,400,043 acres or 1/5th of the total area is protected today. The Everglades National Park deserves at least a one-day trip. The wildlife is very rich and varied, easy to approach, providing that you follow the instructions given by the security staff. Anti-mosquito cream and awareness and caution concerning the alligators are obligatory.
