Kayaking, Everglades National Park, Florida
Not too far from the hustle and bustle of south Florida's busy metropolitan cities is a wee park with lovely little critters. You many have heard of the place—it goes by the name of the Everglades National Park. The Everglades is filled with swamps, mangroves, and forests, and its whopping 1.5 million acres is home to all types of creatures—from alligators and crocodiles to the endangered Florida panther.
