Besides pristine beaches, Southwest Florida is also known for its abundant wildlife and nature parks. If you’re a nature lover, go on a Fort Myers Everglades tour for a once-in-a-lifetime experience you simply cannot pass up! These unique tropical wetlands are home to exotic species of fish, reptiles, birds, and mammals of all kinds. You will not find these creatures in other parts of the US outside a zoo. They are only equaled by the 1,392 unique plant species to be found. Day trip safaris, cruises or airboat rides are recommended. Make sure to pack your hiking shoes in anticipation of exploring Sanibel area parks, Sanibel Island wildlife refuges and sanctuaries, nature tours, and the famous Everglades.
