Three Lakes is a Miami suburb in Miami-Dade County, Florida and is named as such because of the three lakes that border the area. Three Lakes is best known for its focus on wildlife management. The city preserves pine flatwoods, a significant portion of the Kissimmee Prairie (one of the last remaining expanses of dry prairie in the United States), and numerous other natural communities. In Three Lakes, there are ample opportunities for hunting, fishing, birding, nature study, camping, and hiking. For those yearning to overlook the beauty that is Three Lakes, the observation tower located in the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail offers the perfect opportunity to do so!
