Our kids loved their first Everglades (and authentic Florida) experience. And they’re still talking about the baby alligators!

The staff was very nice and helpful. We got checked in right away and enjoyed the airboat tour. The whole facility was smaller than we anticipated, but we enjoyed what was there.
