Immokalee

From Gaming to Racing

Immokalee

Immokalee is a study in contrasts. It's home to the action-packed Seminole Casino and Immokalee Regional Raceway, but the town is decidedly rural in character. It draws visitors to its fresh produce stands, authentic Mexican restaurants and outdoor attractions such as Lake Trafford, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Pepper Ranch Preserve, and Pioneer Museum at Roberts Ranch.

Immokalee has seen its share of hunters, trappers, cowmen and missionaries since it was first settled in the late 1800s. Its name means “my home” in the Seminole language, a nod to one of two Indian tribes (the Calusa Indians first occupied the area) that occupied the area. As the largest inland community in Collier County, it has a thriving agriculture industry. Immokalee's walkable downtown features the First Street Zocalo, a plaza including benches, shaded areas and a bandstand. Enjoy a little R&R while exploring the quaint town's shops and restaurants.

Signature events in Immokalee include Balloons Over Paradise, special promotions at Seminole Casino Immokalee, full-moon hikes with Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed (CREW) Land & Water Trust, Immokalee Harvest Festival, and the Christmas Around the World parade.
