Flamingo Gardens

Live Oak Wildlife Removal is a quaint, western themed city with epic drainage issues. It was founded on land that was largely submerged, and they have been unable to reverse that situation ever since. The upside to this unfortunate circumstance is that Davie features easy access to Florida’s Everglades, some of the most spectacular wetlands in the usa. The city of Davie has some very pleasant amenities and destinations (Davie is where you can get the training facilities of the Miami Dolphins!) , but I have to say the most compelling reason to visit Davie is the Flamingo Gardens – an remarkable wildlife preserve where one can find ibises, storks, herons, flamingos (naturally), and other birds frolicking amongst the rich and varied plant life, all while trying to avoid being devoured by alligators.

Strictly speaking, Flamingo Gardens is a wildlife refuge, aviary, and botanical garden. It started as the private collection of one Floyd L. Wray in 1933 as a small collection of subtropical trees and shrubs, and, over time, grew to the magnificent state that it is in today. Upon entering, you can take an interesting guided tram-ride through a portion of the park (although it should be noted that they appear to focus more on the flora than the fauna). You may also witness the wildlife experience show, where the guides work with hawks, snakes, and other animals. The series is long enough to spotlight some really interesting things, but short enough that you don’t lose interest – I would strongly recommend it. Additionally, there are habitats for river otters and bobcats, not to mention the colossal, free-flight aviary that has among the largest displays of wading birds in North America.

Davie’s soggy surroundings might make for interesting issues for a town, but they are certainly ideal for a wildlife preserve in Florida. Flamingo Gardens is well worth the trip, and would also be a perfect place for birthday parties (perhaps for that special botanist or ornithologist?) Millenium Limo would be delighted to supply a limousine to take you to the Gardens – just picture the birds’ looks of shock when a hummer limo pulls up.
