Introduction

Everglades City is a town of 500 in the Everglades National Park.

This region is part of the 10,000 Island section of Florida. It is the best place in the 10,000 Islands to rent kayaks, or hook up with an air boat. It even has a little airport, so you can fly in or book a float plane.

Sights and Activities

Smallwood Store

At the southern end of Rt 29 is Chokoloskee Island. Smallwood Store is a museum which used to be a trading post, general store and a post office. It was established in 1906 and remained open until 1982. When the doors were shut 90% of the original goods were left in the store. Today it is a museum. Here you can learn about the pioneering days of Florida.

Getting there

By Car

From Naples:
Everglades City is 32 miles from Naples. To get there, you have to go south (which is really west), on Tamaimi Trail (which is really 41), the scenic route to Miami. This road is primarily straight at 60mph, and along the way there is dense flora and fauna. Go about 25 miles, until you see the Everglades Station/Subway, a gas station on the intersection of Rt 29. Take a right turn here. Across from here is an information center. It's a good idea to stop at the information center and query the receptionist for oodles of local lures and charms. Approximately 5 miles south on 29 is Everglades City.
