Theme Park
“Everglades - most unique area to do only in south Florida, make sure you do the airboat ride that glides over swamp land, you will see plenty of gators in the wild, but it’s safe in the boat.. also most offer an alligator show. It is all the way out west, but there are tourist bus tours that will take you out there on excursion (in broward, holiday park is the closest one, but plenty others out there too)”
