Southwest Florida Info - Immokalee

Immokalee - is the Seminole Indian word for 'my home.' This small town in eastern Collier County is the center of the area's agricultural industry. Immokalee's farms produce a significant portion of the nation's fresh produce, including tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, potatoes, citrus and more. Drive down New Market Road any day of the week to check out the Pinhooker's Market, offering fresh produce at great prices. Harvest Farm's Blueberry Store offers fresh baked blueberry products and souvenirs. Fresh blueberries are available from March through May at the Harvest Blueberry U-Pick.

Collier County University Extension offers public Agricultural Tours every year in March for a behind-the-scenes look at the area's diverse farming industry, and hosts the Southwest Florida Yard and Garden show in November.
 


Two of the region's top environmental attractions are in the Immokalee area. Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, located 15 miles east of I-75 on Immokalee Road, is the crown jewel in Audubon's sanctuary system and protects the world's largest remaining stand of old growth bald cypress. Recognized internationally as a top bird watching spot, the sanctuary's 2.25-mile boardwalk produces wonderful opportunities year round to view bird and animal life.


Lake Trafford can be found at the end of Lake Trafford Road in Immokalee. This 1,500-acre freshwater lake, an important element in the Everglades ecosystem, is renowned for crappie, bluegill and bass fishing and is also an excellent place to view birds, alligators and other wildlife. The Airboats & Alligators airboat tour departing from Lake Trafford Marina assures alligator sightings.

The Seminole Casino - Immokalee is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week for video gaming, bingo and poker. A favorite destination for groups, the casino is also well known by locals and visitors for its Seminole-themed restaurant.
