Memorable Souvenir from the Heart of the Florida Everglades
Within the 1.5 million acre confines of the Everglades National Park lies the largest subtropical wilderness and wetlands in the U.S., home to hundreds of rare species of flora and fauna. This Worldwide Gifts fridge magnet photograph of an American crocodile is one of the iconic images of the Everglades, which is the only place the country where both alligators and crocodiles live together.
If you ever have the opportunity to explore the Everglades, make sure you spend some time in the deepest part of the park- Shark Valley, where this souvenir picture from Florida was taken. A fifteen mile bicycle path loops around the valley from the Shark Valley Visitors Center, and affords visitors an opportunity to enjoy the wonders of the wetlands in a very up close and personal manner.
Spectacular Sights in Shark Valley
Whether you choose to walk the path, ride a bicycle, or enjoy a two-hour guided open air tram tour, you are certain to see some marvelous sights in the Everglades National Park and along the Shark Valley Loop Trail. Depending on the season, the weather patterns and the water levels, a variety of plant and animal species can be seen in the area. The landscape includes mangrove forests, sedge fields, swamp, pine forests, canals and marshes.
A long, spiraling ramp leads up to the Shark Valley Observation Tower, where one can take in a spectacular panoramic view of the scenic wetlands and the River of Grass. You might spot an alligator, or a pair of whooping cranes, or any number of the 350 bird species that live in the Everglades. Fishing is a very popular activity along the waterways of Shark Valley, and canoeing in the canals and sedge fields is a memorable experience.
