Fruit & Spice Park

Lonely Planet review

Set just on the edge of the Everglades, this 35-acre tropical public park grows all those great tropical fruits you usually have to contract dysentery to enjoy. The park is divided into ‘continents’ (Africa, Asia etc) and admission to the pretty grounds includes a free tour; you can’t pick the fruit, but you can eat anything that falls to the ground. If you’re coming down this far, you may want to consider taking a day trip into Everglades National Park.
