Arts, Culture & History
With the Paradise Coast’s natural beauty as inspiration, it’s no surprise that the area is a haven for the arts.
Immerse yourself in culture with music and theater, museum exhibits, galleries and other arts and culture attractions – and let Paradise be your muse. Then, get to know the area's history, from the Calusa and, later, Seminole Indians to the settlers who farmed the land and the wealthy northerners who vacationed on our white-sand beaches in the 1920s. Old Florida communities like Everglades City, Immokalee, Chokoloskee and Ochopee offer glimpses into the days of yesteryear.
