Our Favorites

Everglades City is a small community with less then 600 very proud permanent residents. The hotels and restaurants here are all family owned and operated which makes them unique. Each of the restaurants have their own specialties you'll want to try during your visit. This is a Foodie's Paradise! Some of our restaurants close during the Summer months.....I'll always let you know what your options are. I've also included a few things you can do on your own if you like.

 

Local Accommodations

    There are several options for local accommodations here and we can help you find the one that works best for you. I have friends that work at / own a few of the hotels and condominiums here and we can book your room along with whatever tour you decide on. If you have a big family we can arrange your own house with a kitchen. If it's a bed and breakfast that you have in mind, I have just the place. If you're looking for a hotel with a pool for the children, we got you covered. Even if your dream is to camp on a deserted island beach and wake up with the dolphins....we can make it happen! Just let us know your dates / preferences and we'll put together a complete package for your stay here in the Everglades!
