What a fun adventure with a great deal of education mixed in. We earned the Tamiami trail patch and sticker while having memories to last a lifetime. Highly recommended for all.

This is absolutely the best way to visit the everglades. Take your time across this long road thru the middle of the glades, you can spot lots of wildlife in the canals, on the banks and in the bush. Plus there are millions of birds everywhere = they have come to eat the bugs, which are a never ending supply.... More

Must see! Loop road runs parallel to tamiami trail (Rt 41) from about mile 40 to 60. Start and finish not well marked off of Rt 41 but definitely worth looking for. Never knew that there were this many alligators in any one area. Sunning themselves on the side of the road and even on the road, we stopped counting... More

A great way to see what old Florida was truly like. The trip took us about the same time to go from Miami to Naples as it would via I-75. The upside was seeing Florida like it truly was over the past many decades. The traffic was rather light both ways. And the scenery could not have been more eye-catching!... More

The scenery varies along the road and is at times quite spectacular. Make some stops along the way, we stopped at the earden place about halfway and saw a 'gator from the visitor centre boardwalk.

This 275 mile engineering marvel takes you from Tampa to Miami. The best part of the route is traversing the Everglades and watching alligators in the lock system.

We drove from Sanibel to the Keys and decided to take this route instead of the "boring" 75. We had our family of five and we really enjoyed it. Not much traffic on our day either, which was nice. We saw 2-3 gators in the wet areas near the road which really added to the experience. I would certainly take... More

We drove from Miami through the Everglades, and the first two times we crossed the Everglades we took the interstate, I-75, also known as gator alley. I do not know the story behind the name, but I can't really imagine there being any gators there. It is a fenced off interstate with a lot of traffic, only one rest area,... More
