This area is a park attached to the Everglades to the West and there is a nice visitor center as well as intereting walking trail before you get to the visitor center (Big Pine?).
We stopped at the boardwalk first as this is one of the first stops when you get on the Tamiami Trail. It weaved through a forest with a lot of waterways and there were tons of birds in the canopy as well as several birds, turtles and gators along the way and at the obervation deck at the end of the walk way.
The visitor center is small but there is a small waterway in front of the center that is loaded with gators, fish and wading brids that make for a nice photo-op if this is your first stop on the Tamiami Trail.
Overall there are several nice stops like this on the Tamiami Trail but if you plan to make a day of it on you trip from West to East or vice-versa you should pack a lunch and take plenty of water so you can enjoy the various stops along the way as there is little to no service along the corridor.
