More Florida! (part 2/2)

We spend the third day in Florida in a hotel close to the Everglades and got up early to prepare ourselves for an airboat tour and a wildlife show. The airboat tour was really fun, and could have lasted much longer (it was only 25 min).  We spotted a lot of wild life and had a few close encounters with alligators, especially during the wildlife show in which Danielle and I were invited to hold one :). We also explored deeper into the everglades themselves, it is the 3rd largest nature preserve in the US and is litterly swamped with alligators (est. 1.5 M in Florida alone). After our Everglades we headed further east into the sandy beacharea of Florida which is known as Miami. This place was entrenched with party people because of the “hip-hop” festival.  Fun to watch but honestly not our music preference so we spend a couple of hours on the beach and explored Key Biscayne before driving back (225 miles) to Orlando!
