Ahead of her appearance on the cover of U.S. Vogue, Adele took an airboat tour of Florida’s Everglades National Park recently with boyfriend Simon Konecki to unwind.
This stunning part of America is now yours to tour (without paparazzi) on a free-admission day on Saturday March 3rd. It’s Vintage Everglades Day. It’s an incredible escape into the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States, with rare and endangered species. It is a World Heritage Site, International Biosphere Reserve, and Wetland of International Importance. So no wonder Internationally Important singers make it their vacation of choice.
From 10 am to 3pm on March 3rd, park admission at the Homestead entrance will be waived for the day and all activities (including an Ice Cream Social) will be free. Tours of the old Royal Palm State Park are also available. This historical area was owned and protected by the Florida Federation of Women’s Clubs members. Thanks to them, it’s living history as well as a stunning wilderness area.
Driving Instructions Visitors coming from the Miami area and points north should take the Florida Turnpike (Route 821) south until it ends merging with U.S. 1 at Florida City. Turn right at the first traffic light onto Palm Drive (State Road 9336/SW 344th St.) and follow the signs to the park. Visitors driving north from the Florida Keys should turn left on Palm Drive in Florida City and follow the signs to the park.
