I moved to South Florida because I love the beach. But it's gotten too cold to hit the water. So, what do you do in the winter? Why not try birding? Places like Green Cay make it a fun activity! With about 1.5 miles of level boardwalk over marsh lands, it is easy to find a bunch of birds---as well... More

Nice relaxing boardwalk with lots of opportunities to see many species of birds as well as gators. Nice little information center. Boardwalk is spread out enough that it never feels overly crowed.

This place is unique in Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties. It's well maintained and the fact that they have bird feeders all over the place has attracted a huge quantity of different birds. It's also one of the only places within the city limits where you can find alligators in their natural habitat. This place is a beautiful piece... More

The kiddos really liked the indoor alligator aquarium. Also there is plenty of board walk to get some exercise in while looking at birds.
