We stopped here to get a map. It is small but nice and they do have information for you. The one draw back is it isn't open very late in the evenings. Get there early.

Not well signposted! We missed this when we turned into the road for Everglades City, it's on the opposite side of the Tamiami road junction when driving towards Miami. note... when passing another time a nasty road accident occurred at this junction.... beware the flashing traffic lights and proceed cautiously with due regard to the speed of the main road...

stop here first to get area highlights. Good place for maps, coupons and other information. It is on FL 29 and FL 41. But pay attention to the flashing red/yellow light at the corner. Be alert.

A small tourist information building that has always been staffed with people ranging from nice to ok. We are locals but stop often to check on any new information and seeing how the bathrooms are few on old Alligator Alley this is a must. With that said bathrooms on old alligator alley range from terrible to not so good and... More

Be sure to stop here to get information on the area. The helpful people are local and have lots of information to share that won't necessarily be found in a guide book. We were glad we stopped.

We stopped for information on the way to Everglades City. The entrance is upstairs and a couple older people with us had trouble climbing the steps to the office. While waiting in line outback (ten people were waiting to use the ONE toilet) we saw that there actually was a ramp.. There were no signs to direct us there as... More

Not the best visitors' centre. Brochures are well organized but that much on display. Only one toilet and usually a line-up.

We got to the everglades and didn't know where to go for an airboat ride, the young lady working there was very nice and informative. We bought refreshments and used the bathroom and were on our way to a fun filled day. Very convent place.
