Nike Missile Base tours resume at Everglades National Park

November 2015 – One of the most popular tours in Everglades National Park has nothing to do with alligators, wading birds or the River of Grass. It’s a tour of the Everglades Nike Missile Base, one of the best preserved relics of the Cold War in South Florida. The park plans to offer daily tours of the former U.S. Army base again this year, with support from SFNPT. The SFNPT board approved $236,000 in new grants for South Florida’s national parks in September including a $6,600 grant for Nike Missile Base programs. Programs begin this month with a Veterans Day open house at the base on November 11 from 10 AM to 3 PM.
