Sign. Everglades Wonder Gardens

Sad News! Everglades Wonder Gardens last day of operations is tomorrow April 21, 2013. There's a small chance that someone could save it but the original family is calling it quits. Well worth a visit if you live nearby. Another roadside wonder fades away.

Cross a bridge over crazed alligators

In Bonita Springs, FL, on Old US 41, is a marvelous, out of the way roadside attraction that (until April of 2004) boasted the Oldest Living Everglades Crocodile. Unfortunately, we lost "Big Joe" to old age, but visitors can see his "cousin" and thrill to crossing a suspended bridge over a pit of alligators in a feeding frenzy. Many other species represented here. Great for the kids and all under native shade trees.
