Fakahatchee earns 2016 TripAdvisor honor
TripAdvisor®, the world’s largest travel site, has named Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park a 2016 Certificate of Excellence award recipient. This is the second consecutive year Fakahatchee Strand has earned the worldwide award, which recognizes attractions listed on TripAdvisor that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews.
To qualify for the award, an attraction must maintain an overall TripAdvisor “bubble” rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews, and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.
Francine Stevens, president of the Friends of Fakahatchee, said: “Earning our second TripAdvisor certificate of excellence is a tribute to our volunteers and park staff members who reveal this hidden jewel of the Everglades to visitors. We will work hard this season to maintain our high TripAdvisor rating.”
