Everglades City

Everglades City and nearby Chokoloskee Island give visitors a glimpse into Southwest Florida's past with museums and small-town charm. They are favorite launch locations for boats exploring the Everglades Wilderness Waterway and Paradise Coast Blueway within the extensive Ten Thousand Islands coastal mangrove estuary. Beyond the famous Everglades National Park, preserves in the area include the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, Big Cypress National Preserve, the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge, Picayune Strand State Forest, Collier-Seminole State Park and nearby Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park

This area is known as the "Stone Crab Capital of the World." Feast on the beloved crustacean's claws at rustic seafood houses and restaurants during stone crab season, October 15 through May 15.
