On the edge of Chokoloskee Bay, you'll find an Old Florida fishing village of raised houses, turquoise water and scattershot emerald-green mangrove islands. ‘City’ is an ambitious name for Everglades City, but this is a friendly fishing town where you can easily lose yourself for a day or three. You'll find some intriguing vestiges of the past here, including an excellent regional museum, as well as delicious seafood.
Hwy 29 runs south through town onto the small, peaceful residential island of Chokoloskee, which has some pretty views over the watery wilderness of the 10,000 Islands. You can arrange boating excursions from either Everglades City or Chokoloskee to explore this pristine environment.
