VIDEO: Road Trip to the Everglades

Since we’re both always working and don’t get to spend as much time together as we’d like, my brother Dennis and I decided it would be fun to take a road trip down to Everglades National Park. I’ve partnered with Esurance because car insurance gives me peace of mind when I hit the road.

The Florida Everglades are known for their pristine mangrove forests, diverse bird life, and of course their gators! You don’t have to actually enter the park to experience the thrill of the mangrove canals and see these incredible reptiles up close.

First up, we head to Robert is Here, a large fruit and vegetable market that is famous for its milkshakes. We explored the shop and bought some honey. We also saw the turtles, ducks, goats, and the other animals in the mini farm at the back of the property.

After filling up at Robert is Here, we head to Everglades Alligator Farm to get a real taste of the Florida Everglades. Here we see some snakes, watch the alligator show, feed some alligators and take an exciting airboat ride. Warning: everyone gets wet!

Last but not least, we head to Gator Grill for lunch. It’s a small restaurant that’s famous for its gator dishes. We tried some gator bites, gator Stir-fry, gator tacos and frog legs. The Gator bites were amazing! The frog legs was also very good, but not really favorite.

The craziest road trip I have ever been on is when I was filming in the mountains in the Czech Republic in winter. We were following a guy that was showing us how to get out off the mountain. He was going so fast in snow that I almost flew off a cliff!
