We stopped here on our way to our hotel in Miami. We thought it strange when we paid to enter that we were handed a flyer about the sargassum seaweed. Being from Florida, we expect some seaweed and are not bothered by some on the...More

Went here to see the nature trail and wildlife. Saw a rat and walked into so many spider webs. Would not recommend this.
