The Florida Everglades, located in southern Florida, is one of the largest wetlands in the world. The Everglades consist of a shallow sheet of fresh water that rolls slowly over the lowlands and through billions of blades of Saw Grass. As water moves through the Everglades, it causes the sawgrass to ripple like green waves; this is why the Everglades received the nickname "River of Grass." The closest Everglades experience to Naples is Everglades City, which is also home to Everglades National Park. We can help you plan your Everglades adventure which can include a trip to the National Park, an airboat tour, a swamp buggy tour or just a visit to historic Everglades City.
