By JOHN KLEIN Senior Sports Columnist Editor’s note:
John Klein, Tulsa World senior sports columnist, inherited his wanderlust from his grandfather John Steichen, who traveled the world after he retired from farming in the 1960s. Klein flew on the Concorde from London to New York, did a transatlantic crossing on the Queen Elizabeth II from New York to London and rode the Orient Express from Paris to Venice before he was 30 years old. In recent years, his wife Lisa has joined him as he traded in his black tie for binoculars and wild nights for wildlife.
“The National Parks: America’s Best Idea” —Klein listed Florida Everglades see what wrote below:
Sooner trips to the Orange Bowl over the years have made the Everglades an easy destination for traveling Oklahomans.
The drive down to the visitor’s center is a little farther than it looks on the map, but do it. It isn’t easy to drag yourself away from South Beach or Joe’s Stone Crab. But again, do it. The Everglades is one of the most unique places of nature in the country.
The visitor’s center, and the wooden walkways around it, are very interesting. However, to really see the Everglades, you’ll need to get out in it. Get one of the tours that will take you out in boats into the park. Bring your insect repellent and maybe a hand-held fan. The heat and humidity here isn’t just high, it’s oppressive.
The Everglades has so much wildlife it can be nearly overwhelming.
You’ll never see so many birds and all types of animals in one place.
Stay: The Fountainebleau is the quintessential Miami Beach hotel.
Eat: Joe’s Stone Crab, in Miami Beach, will have a long wait that is worth it.
