Where To Stay In The Everglades

The Best Local Lodging In The Everglades

Everglades City makes a great basecamp for all of Our Tours and your other activities. It is considered The Capital City of the Everglades as it completely surrounded by the 4 top parks / preserves. Everglades National Park, Big Cypress Preserve, Fakahatchee Strand and The 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge all come together at Everglades City.


In just 20min you can also visit Picayune Strand State Forest, Collier – Seminole State Park and The Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. Chokoloskee Island (The Gateway To The 10,000 Islands) is another nice, quite place to stay and is actually connected to Everglades City. There are several options for Local Lodging while visiting the Everglades. There are a few small hotels, some unique Air B&B’s and even cabins right on the water. Here are some of our favorite places that you should definitely look into.
