This is a beautiful visitors center. They have very cool detailed displays of the Everglades and its flora & fauna, also a nice gift shop inside. But don't stop here! Take the ride through the park & explore! The River of Grass is magical!

Go to Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center to see the Larry Perez video (worth the trip) and to visit the very friendly and knowledgable staff.

A great place to get info on the park and learn about all the things you will see and the different trails. If you have kids, ask for the Junior Ranger Activity guide.

This is your standard issue visitor center (which is a good thing). Educational exhibits, enthusiastic staff, and a short video/movie about the park. We were pleased.
