Living in Davie, we are just a few miles from the "River of Grass", or Everglades as it's known. So, naturally, when a friend visited from Denver, it's the first place we thought about going. We love to take out-of-towners on air boat rides at Sawgrass Recreation Center. They have a small Zoo there that you can tour with your admission, and hold a young alligator (been there, done that...but cool for kids). We saw several gators on the boat ride (which was one of the best yet) and caught a Raccoon digging through the trash. After all the rain, the water was really high, but that just had the gators swimming around more. Check out the pics and vids below.
