The abandoned site is hard to find. We got lost at the 1st time and luckily caught the 2pm tour on the 2nd try. Tour volunteer Scott is very passionate and knowledgeable. It is not a fancy tour (outdoor only and no restroom on site), but it reminds us that we should never forget history.

Quick drive to see this if you are already in the park. Worth to see some historical items as well as old pictures and newspaper clippings. They even had old cereal boxes of what missile freebie toys they were offering back in the day! That was pretty cool to see.

We just finished our fifth Nike base tour with Scott. Thursday I brought my two nephews and a niece, I'm not sure how we are always go on days when Scott is the tour guide, lucky I guess. We all don't know how he does it, don't matter the age of the folks on the tour, or what part of... More

Fascinating facility located in the Everglades National Park, it is a throwback to the Cuban missile crisis in 1962. Only about 100 miles from Cuba, Nike missiles were stationed to be available to protect the USA from enemy bombers. The facility is not functional now but a wonderful display of a full size Nike missile and its attending devices is... More

Excellent tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we learned things about this time in our history we did not know. Highly recommended.

A 15-minute drive deep into the Everglades National Park from the Florida City entrance brings you to the site of the 1960's cold war-era Nike missile site. For the casual tourist, this site is interesting but definitely not a destination (In other words, it's not worth working your travel plans around a visit.) For the military history buff, or those...

This missile site is inside Everglades National Park, so you will have to pay entrance fees to access it. The site is a restricted area, therefore you can only visit it when a tour is offered. The tours are free but are only available on certain days and times, mainly in the "dry season" December-April. When we visited, the tours... More

We were lucky to have Leon guiding our visit to the missile site, he was so animated and full of information that he really made the somewhat drab and featureless site come alive for our group. A fascinating history and one of the hangars does get opened up and has some original and restored equipment including a missile inside. Also,... More
