Biscayne National Park

<p>Biscayne National Park is located directly next to the city of Homestead. It is unique in that almost 95 percent of the park is actually underwater, and tourists and residents who visit the park have the opportunity to go scuba diving and snorkeling. In addition to the plant and animal life found in the water, the park also has a coral reef. Some of the animals found in the coral reef include manatees, sponges, and turtles. The park's land has a mangrove forest which has bird life and swallowtail butterflies.</p>

Coral Castle

<p>Coral Castle is a local landmark in Homestead. It was built in the late 1800s as a stone structure made of different megalithic stones. These stones were formed of limestone and coral, and the site has long been used as a tourist destination where visitors pay to see the sights. The stones themselves weigh several tons, and it is somewhat of a local mystery to how they were arranged by their creator, Edward Leedskalnin. He spent nearly thirty years building the Coral Castle to its present day look.</p>

Everglades National Park

<p>The Everglades National Park is located near the city of Homestead, and is one of the state of Florida's most well-known landmarks. The Everglades is mostly protected by the federal government, as it has important wildlife and a fragile ecosystem that could be damaged by too much human interaction. Protected species that call the Everglades home include the Florida panther, the American crocodile, and the West Indian manatee. There are hundreds of different birds, fish, and mammals who live in the Everglades and make the area unique.</p>
