Develop a love for a place in the US that you may never have visited. It is a wonderful, diverse place unlike any other place.

This Road Scholar trip to the Everglades was stimulating and informative about the diversity of plants and animals and the problems associated with managing the demands for water between urban areas and the Everglades ecosystem.

Wonderful experiences in various parts of the Everglades, with numerous up-close views of alligators, beautiful birds, and a wonderful guide too. It was great to only have to move hotels once during the week.

Very full schedule every day with an excellent itinerary and knowledgeable/well organized/personable trip leader, Julie. I learned so much about the history of the Everglades including the 3 main Indian tribes, attempts to drain "the swamp", and the animals and plant life. After obsessing about whether or not to do the "wet" hike, I can say I am glad I did it ; just watch your footing. Both the Ivey House and Best Western offered large and comfortable rooms with nice breakfast selections. Meals on the road were very good to excellent. Do read "The Swamp" before you go and you'll be thrilled to see many of the places mentioned in the book and details discussed during the trip. I highly recommend this trip if you have a curious mind and like using each minute to the fullest.

Wonderful trip of a World Heritage site. Great leader; nice small group of active, interested travelers from all over the USA; nice accommodations providing an incredible opportunity so see both sides of The Everglades and surrounding sites up close and personal. Thanks, Road Scholar for a very positive experience!

The program provides a wonderful array of activities for lovers of Florida flora and fauna. In addition, there are numerous opportunities to sharpen photography and birding skills. Meals are delicious and varied. South Florida weather in the winter is amazing!

A roadscholar trip to the Everglades should be on everyone's "bucket list." Carolyn Ruth
