Florida is much more than beaches (even though we all think they’re pretty great). Our southern state is also known for its unique ecosystem and outdoor recreation opportunities found in the Everglades. At Carl’s Van Rentals, we really encourage our customers to check out the Everglades. One such way to do just that is at Sawgrass Recreation Park. 

Once a fishing camp in the 1950s, Sawgrass Recreation Park is now one of the area’s leading airboat companies on the Everglades. If you’ve never been on an airboat ride, you’re in for quite a treat. There’s really no better way to explore the Everglades’ unique ecosystem—and have a great time doing it.

Sawgrass Recreation Park’s mission is not only to help its visitors get a fun airboat experience but also to preserve the wildlife and environment of the Everglades. You can see some of that wildlife yourself on your visit. The park has animal exhibits featuring alligators (a Florida must-see), snakes, leopards, the Florida bobcat, lizards, and more. While you’re there, you can also grab a bite to eat at The Gator Grill, stop for a memento at the photo booth, or purchase handmade crafts or a souvenir from the gift shop.

Don’t come to Fort Lauderdale without seeing the Everglades for yourself. It’s something everyone should experience at least once in their lives.
