Everglades Safari Park - ‘BEST ESCAPE 2014’ by Miami New Times

Citing the “majestic nature of our own backyard,” paper confirms Everglades Safari Park is one of the top things to do in Miami and the area’s go-to destination for adventure & fun.

Miami, FL – When it comes to things to do in Miami, sometimes your greatest escape can take place right in your own backyard…at least Miami New Times thought so when it named Everglades Safari Park “Best Escape Miami 2014” in its annual ‘Best Of’ Awards.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized by Miami New Times, one of our area’s leading papers, in this way,” said Rick Farace, the Park’s Owner. “In our busy and bustling city, it’s important to have this kind of an escape or go-to attraction, both for visitors and residents alike. There’s no other place in the world like The Everglades, and when it comes to things to do in Miami, it’s such a great option,” Farace added.

In addition to being a top choice for nature-lovers and adventure-seekers looking for things to do in Miami, the newspaper was also quick to point out the Park’s reputation as a must-visit destination for visiting dignitaries and celebrities, explaining: “This sprawling mecca of airboat rides and animal education is where the Everglades National Park Service sends bigwigs for a breezy spin: John McCain, Joe Biden, Ludacris, even the Kardashians have caught a ride.”

In addition to this most recent award, Everglades Safari Park has recently received other prestigious mentions, including:

USA Today’s 10 Best: “This is the most all-encompassing alligator experience.”

Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence: “The Florida Everglades’ premier and most complete airboat attraction.”
