Flamingo Visitor Center
Even though the Flamingo Visitor Center is in one of the more out-of-the-way areas of Everglades National Park, it is easy to find. Flamingo is located 28 miles and about an hour south of the Homestead main park entrance and the Coe visitor Center.
The Flamingo Visitor Center is located on a second story landing that once connected to the Flamingo Lodge Restaurant. Both the restaurant and lodge were heavily damaged by 2005 hurricanes and replacements have yet to reopen.
Flamingo Visitor Center, 40001 State Hwy 9336, Homestead, FL 33034; 239/695-2945
Directions: Coming from the north, should take the Florida Turnpike (Route 821) south until it ends at Florida City, merging with U.S. 1. Turn right at the first traffic light onto Palm Drive (State Road 9336/SW 344th St.) and follow the signs to the park.
