This is the only stop that needs to be made in this area of the Everglades. Good thing is that is not far from the entrance. The gentleman that was at the sight answering questions was actually based here. He was quit knowledgeable with a good memory. I learned quite a lot from just this little hanger. I do not... More

As part of our tour of Everglades, my wife and I attended the ranger tour of the HM69 Nike base. There's enough of the buildings left from the 60s and 70s to help make the story of the men who served there easy to imagine. The highlight of the tour was one of the barns that held the missiles --... More

My husband loved it. It's historic and interesting learning the information and what our service men went though back then.

The park service does an excellent job with the history of what took place here during the Cold War . I highly recommend this and would also like to thank the volunteers whom help the park service maintain this exhibit.

This is great little tour and very informative. Its a stark reminder of how dangerous and serious times were during the cold war to say the least. I felt like I was stepping back into time for an hour and a half. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and shared personal stories of the young men who served on... More

Almost all in our group were 50 years or older and knew about the Cuban Missle Crisis; or so we thought until this tour, today! Wow...our docent was Scott G, a veteran who himself was only 2 at that time; BUT he knew more than any of us! What a historian! So totally interesting! You learn so much; and you... More

I had done the tour previously, about 5 years ago when they first opened the site for tours. It was OK then, but not really anything on display and our guide wasn't so good. They've collected quite a lot of additional items to display since then, not least of all a decommissioned Nike Missile. Our guide this time, Leon, was... More

If you have gotten this far in your search for interesting destinations in South Florida, you're almost there. While visiting Everglades National Park, especially if you remember the "duck and cover" drills in grammar school, be sure to take the full-tour or visit the open-house and see the actual (but decommissioned in 1979) Nike Missile Base from the Cold War....
