The tour took us through the Art Deco District and then to downtown Miami Tours and then we did the “splashdown” right into Biscayne Bay. Everyone agreed that as great is the Miami Tours was that the “splashdown”.
The fifth most populous urbanized area is ranked as a global city for its importance in finance, entertainment, commerce and international trade. Miami sizzles all the year around with exciting entertainment, beaches, nightlife and world class Miami hotels. We did see a number of alligators during our visit to the Everglades, including one big one! That was very exciting for all of us. It was interesting to learn more about the role of alligators, not only as a top predator in the area, but also the importance of alligators to the overall ecology of the Everglades. Alligators burrow out gator holes that provide homes for many aquatic species during the dry season. Manatees and dolphins also live in the open waters of the Everglades, but are obviously not seen in the shallow waters of the backcountry.
