This is absolutely the best way to visit the everglades. Take your time across this long road thru the middle of the glades, you can spot lots of wildlife in the canals, on the banks and in the bush. Plus there are millions of birds everywhere = they have come to eat the bugs, which are a never ending supply.... More

Must see! Loop road runs parallel to tamiami trail (Rt 41) from about mile 40 to 60. Start and finish not well marked off of Rt 41 but definitely worth looking for. Never knew that there were this many alligators in any one area. Sunning themselves on the side of the road and even on the road, we stopped counting... More

A great way to see what old Florida was truly like. The trip took us about the same time to go from Miami to Naples as it would via I-75. The upside was seeing Florida like it truly was over the past many decades. The traffic was rather light both ways. And the scenery could not have been more eye-catching!... More

The scenery varies along the road and is at times quite spectacular. Make some stops along the way, we stopped at the earden place about halfway and saw a 'gator from the visitor centre boardwalk.

This 275 mile engineering marvel takes you from Tampa to Miami. The best part of the route is traversing the Everglades and watching alligators in the lock system.

Fantastic so many things to do and see, you'll probably not be able to stop and see everything in one day, from Miami to Naples is awesome, straight through the Everglades, wildlife is unbelievable, lots of air-boat rides animal sanctuaries, educational centers, camp sites Everglade city, keep your eyes open for the eateries especial Joanna's Blue Crab Cafe & Miccosukee...

We drove from Sanibel to the Keys and decided to take this route instead of the "boring" 75. We had our family of five and we really enjoyed it. Not much traffic on our day either, which was nice. We saw 2-3 gators in the wet areas near the road which really added to the experience. I would certainly take... More

We drove from Miami through the Everglades, and the first two times we crossed the Everglades we took the interstate, I-75, also known as gator alley. I do not know the story behind the name, but I can't really imagine there being any gators there. It is a fenced off interstate with a lot of traffic, only one rest area,... More

Going from Marathon to Naples i decided to go on the 41 rather than 75 as i had been on this road 25 years ago. I was not disappointed low traffic levels across incredible changing things to look at. Even had lunch on a terrace overlooking a sleeping alligator. I was not disappointed.

Tamiami Trail is the portion of US Highway 41 between Tampa and Miami in southern Florida. The most scenic portion is between San Marco Blvd. (State Rt. 92) near Naples and Krome Avenue (State Rt. 997) near Miami. In this 74-mile section, the road passes through Fakahatchee Strand Preserve, Big Cypress National Preserve, and the northern boundary of Everglades National... More
