To see the best part of the Everglades, at minimum, you must go to Big Cypress National Preserve, as this is where theforest begins and wildlife is most abundant. This tourgoes the extra 10 minutes to the Miccosukee Reserve for the airboat ride, where the pilot goes on the north side of Tamiami Trail and the water flows more naturally. The boat then takes you to a tree island where the Miccosukee lived for generations, before casinos. Most importantly, the pilot takes his time.
