It’s 25 minutes of twists and turns in a subtropical wonderland teeming with plants and wildlife! Many of the guides are genuine Seminole Indians who know the Everglades like the back of their hand. Our recommendation? Take the twilight expedition to see everything and, as a cherry on top, a beautiful sunset to boot!

One of Davie’s best values, Davie Golf Club, was recently renovated and today resembles a championship-level course.

(The song “Let It Go.”) In short, it’s the perfect place in Davie, FL, to practice your swing as well as your short game!
