Life Style

Because areas of the park are so far secluded from civilization, the Everglades are the perfect place to go stargazing in Florida. Whether you’re camping out, or just want to visit at night, you can see the night sky very easily here.

Choose between Tiger Key or Picnic Key in the Ten Thousand Islands for a view of the brilliant night sky from your own private beach! Overnight camping sites on the island are limited and must be reserved in advance.

You can also go the Shark Valley at the northernmost entrance to the park. Admission is free, even after dark. Just walk along the Tamiami Trail and you’ll reach a 65-foot-tall concrete observation tower! We highly recommend using bug spray before stargazing here.
