After previously visiting the Everglades National Park at the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center down in Homestead, we wanted to go back and experience a different area of this massive 1.5 million acre park.

The Shark Valley Visitor Center is located at 36000 SW 8th St., Miami, FL 33194 which is about 50 miles north west of the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center.

Visitors are welcome at the park from 9:15 AM to 5:15 PM every day. To confirm holiday hours, contact the staff at (305) 221-8776.

Some of the features of the Shark Valley Visitor Center include educational displays, an underwater camer, tram tours, bicycle rentals, a gift shop, two walking trails, and a video of the park's history.
