New Everglades area Visitor Center opens

Historic Everglades City has so many interesting places to see and things to do but where do we get information about them?

No problem now that the new Everglades Visitor Center will be open!

The official ceremony is on Saturday, February 1st, at 11:00 a.m. with Mayor Howie Grimm cutting the ribbon at the renovated premises in 207 West Broadway, the salmon-colored building opposite the famous Rod & Gun Club.

The Visitor Center is also the Trail Town headquarters for the City which was recognized in 2019 by the Florida’s Office of Greenways & Trails as an important hub for recreational activities, such as paddling, hiking and biking.

The Visitor Center is operated by the Everglades Society for Historic Preservation. For info, see or stop in at the center any day from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. during the winter season.
