When visiting Fort Lauderdale on your vacation to the Sunshine State, there’s one must-see spot you should have on your list – Everglades Holiday Park. With a colorful cast of characters (both in and out of the water), guided airboat tours and even roaming film crews, this park has something for everyone in the family.

Located at 21940 Griffin Road in Fort Lauderdale, FL, Everglades Holiday Park is an easy destination to reach in your van rental from Carl’s Van Rentals.

Attend one of Everglades Holiday Park’s airboat tours and find yourself immersed in a world ruled by the park’s prehistoric denizens. You’ll get to see these alligators up close and personal in a way not afforded by a trip to the zoo.

Gators aren’t the only creatures taking up residence in the sawgrass surrounding the park. Egrets, cranes, turtles and numerous fish species also call the Everglades home and can be seen on the airboat tour.

These high-end airboats feature a covered passenger compartment to protect visitors from the sun and make tours available in all weather conditions.

The animals may be the stars of the Everglades, but there are some other stars worth mentioning that can be seen at Everglades Holiday Park. The Gator Boys, of Animal Planet fame, film most of their episodes at the park, so be on the lookout for film crews as well as gators!


Open 24 hours a day, year-round.

 Airboat Tours: 7 days a week, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Tours are 60 minutes, and they depart every 20 minutes.
