Sawgrass Recreation Park Review

A half-hour airboat ride through the Everglades allows you to view a good variety of plants and wildlife, from ospreys and alligators to turtles, snakes, and fish. Besides the ride, your entrance fee covers admission to an Everglades nature exhibit; a native Seminole village; and exhibits on alligators, other reptiles, and birds of prey. Super cool airboat nights tours are offered on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 8:30 pm to experience the nocturnal world of the 'glades. Reservations required for night tours.

    Sawgrass Recreation Park Review

    This trip was well worth the money. You take an air boat ride out through the everglades. We saw several alligators. The only complaint would be the ride isn't long enough. Once you complete your 30 minute ride, they have exhibits you get to see. The kids really enjoyed it. They got to hold a real alligator which was extremely neat. It's a definitely must when in Fort Lauderdale.
