When it comes to the motions of the sun, Florida has some pretty great views.  With Oceans to both out East and West we are able to see some beautiful sunrises and sunsets.  The Keys were always the best to me, you could catch a sunrise, spend the day playing, and walk across the street for drinks on the beach at sunset.  Living on the East Coast on the main land of Florida, I’ve seen some beautiful sunrises at the beach.  I’ve always been bummed that there wasn’t a way to enjoy a sunset without spending a few hours in the car and hauling across Alligator Alley.  Turns out you don’t need the Ocean to enjoy a sunset.  If you’re on the East Coast and want to enjoy a beautiful, colorful, peaceful sunset look no further than our very own Florida Everglades…

Just west of the Sawgrass Expressway is endless sights of Everglades, a true beauty of Florida.  If you happen to be in Broward County, take Atlantic Blvd all the way to the Sawgrass, get on going South, and before you actually hit the Expressway is a construction sight on the right.  This is a fairly popular place for people wanting to see a beautiful sunset, so don’t worry about being all alone in the Everglades.  Park along the road, walk on back and up onto the levy, and enjoy the sights.  You can bring a chair and relax or your hiking boots of bike and explore the levy, including a part that heads west into the glades.  It is the Everglades, so expect to see nature. Upon arrival, sparrows were swooping everywhere, hunting insects.  You’ll also see flocks of birds flying around, which makes for some pretty cool picture taking opportunities.  You’ll probably also hear larger animals shuffling around in the saw grass.  Naturally, my dog wanted to explore the noises, but as crazy as she makes me, I wasn’t about to have her become dinner for an alligator.  We didn’t come for trouble, we came to relax, and to see this…
