The One World Heritage Site You Simply Must Visit This Year
World Heritage Sites are designated landmarks, both natural and man-made, that are protected by the World Heritage Convention. These areas are preserved for the enjoyment and educations of visitors from around the globe. Here in the U.S., we are lucky to have 23 of them, which range from cultural to natural. One such natural area, which is also a designated National Park, is the Everglades in Florida. This massive, 1.5-million acre area is a treasure trove of wetlands and wildlife and is an absolute must-see. Here’s more on the one world heritage site you simply must visit this year.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
