Best time out in the Everglades is early in the morning.First stop if anyone is wanting breakfast will be at the famous 'Robert is Here' fruit stand. Don't let the word fruit stand fool you. It's an extremely large fruit stand with exotic fruits from all over the world. Many of the fruits will be cut and prepared for you to eat on the spot. Milkshakes made out of the fruits are also available and very popular. Next on to the park. First stop will be down on Flamingo Key for a quick stop to spend some time with the manatees, from there we will head on over and start out on one of the many trails out in the Everglades or if anyone is interested there is also the option of canoeing some of the water trails.
I've lived in Florida for 25+ years. My favorite place is out in the Everglades park. I spend a lot of time out there hiking the trails and taking pictures. To me the Everglades is one of the most beautiful places around here and I would love to take and share that with other people and maybe after the experience they will walk away loving the Everglades as much as I do.
First stop, if no one has had breakfast will be at the world famous Robert is here fruit stand. Then off to the Everglades National park where we will head on over to see the manatees. After that we will head out on one of the hiking trails. Most tourist when they come to the Everglades stick mainly to the boardwalks and miss so much of the beauty of the Everglades that is out on the trails.
Wear comfortable closed toe shoes. also bring an extra pair of socks, some trails may have water on them and you'll want an extra pair of dry socks. Insect repellent is a must. Also bring a hat.
