About Everglades National Park

The 1.5 million-acre Everglades National Park is a one-of-a-kind destination that is the biggest subtropical wilderness in the United States. Everglades National Park was created in 1947 to preserve the terrain, animals and plants of this Florida landmark because to many people were trying to convert wetlands into land harming the ecosystem. The park is home to alligators, American crocodiles, manatees, otters, snakes, birds, fish and the Florida panther. It has five habitats of Mangrove, Pineland, Hammock, Sawgrass and Slough. The attraction is a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Site, Wetland of International Importance and International Biosphere Reserve.

Coral Castle

Latvia native Edward Leedskalnin carved 1,100 tons of coral from 1923 to 1951 to create this unique Florida sculpture garden. When people asked him why he did it, the late Leedskalnin said he realized "the secret of the pyramids." Coral Castle Museum, which is a Registered National Historic Landmark, has a 9-ton gate, sundial, telescope, furniture and many other ornaments all made out of stone. Some say unrequited love could be Leedskalnin's motivation for the sculptures as his 16-year-old fiancee called off his Latvian wedding just a day before it was supposed to occur.
