The Everglades National Park

Our second major side trip was to the Everglades National Park. From Homestead, we drove the 38 miles to Seminole at the southern tip of the Park, stopping along the way at all but one of the main points of interest.

We stayed that night at the Park lodge. The following morning we took a boat tour aboard the Pelican and then stopped for a picnic lunch at West Lake on our way out. (See: Our Everglades Trip)
