South Florida

Despite dense coastal populations, South Florida offers wilderness on a grand scale.

Millions of acres of watery wilds are protected by Everglades National Park and the Big Cypress Swamp. It’s a region where the prairies meet the tropics, and where outdoor recreation can be found around every corner. On the coasts, barrier islands and inland prairies are protected for hiking, paddling, and trail riding, and hundreds of small but critical urban parks provide quiet getaways for families to enjoy birding, wildlife watching, and the colorful blooms that appear year-round.
