Less than 30 miles from South Beach lies America's largest subtropical wilderness (with about 1.5 million acres), where freshwater, seawater, and terrestrial ecosystems collide. It's the only place in the country to spot crocodiles, and the most reliable place to see even more flamingoes. Known as the River of Grass, the park is also home to thousands of wildlife species, including alligators, bobcats, manatees, Florida panthers, and a variety of tropical wading birds such as the Great Blue Heron. Recreational activities include fishing, hiking and biking trails, canoeing, kayaking, and camping. Although you can explore the park by strolling on boardwalks, you'll get much closer to wildlife by boat, canoe, or kayak.
