Known as the “Amazon of North America” the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park allows for chance to examine a linear swamp forest. Delight in the feathery royal palms that stand tall alongside old-growth bald cypress trees and 44 native orchid species and 14 native bromeliad species. Stroll the 3,200-foot boardwalk at Big Cypress Bend and gaze upon the “gator hole” or the miles of old logging and railway paths which criss-cross the preserve as hiking trails. Wildlife abounds with chances to spot deer, panther, Everglades mink and diamond back terrapin as well as resident and migratory birds. The park is free to enter.
