Florida is one of the most-visited states in the United States largely due to its vibrant cities like Miami and the beaches and theme parks that it contains. However, Florida also boasts a formidable natural patrimony that is worth discovering as well. Here are three of Florida’s natural treasures that you should visit soon!
Everglades National Park
The southern tip of Florida is the home of Everglades National Park, one of the most impressive tropical wetlands found anywhere on Earth. From breeding birds to crocodiles, from mangrove forests to swamps, the unique treasures found here can be experienced with hikes, tram tours, and camping.
Gulf Islands National Seashore
The barrier islands of the seashore of northern Florida on the Gulf of Mexico are protected as a national seashore thanks to their ecological importance. White quartz sand beaches, dunes, pine trees, and salt marshes containing unique animals are easily accessible via nature trails.
The southernmost point of the continental United States are the Florida Keys, which can be accessed by US Highway 1 and feature great opportunities for fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving as well as pristine beaches.
