Florida's National Parks Are Fascinating, and Really Weird

Florida has eleven national parks, 1 national heritage area, 18 national natural landmarks, and four national preserves. Some of their stories area really fascinating, weird, and quite 'hidden.' Close to home, there's Black Caesar's gold, which was found in Biscayne National Park. And just as close, the last base of the Cuban Missile Crisis is hiding in the Everglades National Park.
