Things to Do in Miami - National Parks - Everglades & Biscayne Bay

In 1916, American visionaries including the poet John Muir and President Theodore Roosevelt came together to establish the National Park Service. Designed to protect our country's wilderness, natural monuments and historic treasures, the National Park Service now includes over 390 parks - including two in the Miami area. Get to know Biscayne National Park and Everglades National Park, and visit these magnificent natural areas during your stay in South Florida.

Biscayne National Park - Unlike any other National Park, this park was made for water sports - including boating, fishing, snorkeling, kayaking, and scuba diving. In fact, over 95% of the park is covered by water - and it's the perfect place to explore the wet and wild side of the Miami area.

Everglades National Park - Alligators, manatees, Florida panthers and hundreds of bird species inhabit this captivating wetland, which covers a large portion of South Florida. Along with spectacular wildlife viewing, the park is a great place for hiking, canoeing, and boating.
