The Christian Point Trail is near the Flamingo Visitor Center in Everglades National Park. This hike is good for kids. The park says "wander along a rustic path through a wide diversity of habitats. The trail begins in dense mangroves and buttonwoods full of bromeliads, or airplants. Next, investigate the unusual, salt-loving vegetation of open coastal prairie. Dead buttonwood snags interrupt these expenses that were shaped by hurricanes. Finally, you'll end up along the shore of Snake Bight, best viewed near high tide." There is camping available in Everglades National Park. The Long Pine Key Campground and the Flamingo Campground can accommodate both tents and RV's.
