Good places to see alligators

A little bit of looking into neighborhood canals or the ditches along appropriately named Alligator Alley (Interstate 75 between Naples and Miami) will occasionally offer a sighting, but don’t get too close. And don’t even think about feeding them — that’s illegal.

If you want to see lots of alligators together, try the Big Cypress National Preserve Oasis Visitor Center. The visitor center is located along U.S. 41, 50 miles west of Miami and 50 miles east of Naples. Preserve headquarters is located near Naples and Everglades City, along U.S. 41, 5 miles east of the State Road 29 intersection. The center is open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., every day but Christmas. You’ll not only see lots of alligators in the water in front of the building, but also learn more about alligators and where to see them. Staffers can offer information and guidance.

Also try the Gatorama Alligator Farm in Palmdale.
