If you're staying on Marco Island, this is a great diversion. The drive is about 20 minutes. I think the boardwalk is a great way to experience the everglades. The walk is not too long and not too short. Just use mosquito spray or you'll regret it. There is a nice gift shop at the trail head which probably has some for sale, but I don't know for sure. We saw our first alligator just a few feet from where we parked our car! And we saw a couple more baby alligators along the trail. After the boardwalk, we drove a few more miles down the road to Everglades City and Chokoloskee Island. Unless you have a lot of time on your hands, there's not much to see there. Just some mildly interesting old buildings and a view of the bay but that's about it. I wouldn't recommend it.
