Everglades, Florida

smithsonian.com

This is a large suburb I live in. My home has a lake in the back that connects to five other lakes in this area. Occasionally I will take my electric propelled boat and slowly travel through it. I've seen iguanas, egrets, crows, eagles, ducks and geese of different species, turtles, huge patches of water lilies, and many other natural wildlife known to this area. But just steps away, there are Everglades surrounding my area, the wetlands as it's known to the locals. Many city parks and historic areas as well as just crossing some of our near by roads...you can witness geese, ducks, alligators and plant life. It is nature at its best.
