Pa-hay-okee Overlook --- Shark Valley

If you want to get a real sense of what the Florida Everglades are, take a trip to the Pa- hay-okee Overlook.

The Pa-hay-okee Overlook features a short boardwalk and an observation tower that gives you an expansive view of the Everglades. Be sure to bring your camera because you're likely to come across some snapshots you won't want to miss.
