Recreational Activities and Adventures

SWFLinfo_recreation_01.jpgSouthwest Florida is known as the Golf Capital of the World. More than 200 challenging courses pepper the area for players casual and competitive. As the snowbirds head north in the spring, course rates drop significantly and tee times are much easier to come by. If you're lucky, you can find one of the many private courses open to the public from May through October.
The area is brimming for environmental enthusiasts. On the water recreational activities are without limit. Boating, kayaking, canoeing, skiing, sailing, fishing. You name the water sport, Paradise has it.

SWFLinfo_recreation_02.jpgLand lovers might prefer shelling, sun bathing or bird watching. Nearby Everglades National Park is the only subtropical park on the continent. The park is known for its rich bird life, but it's also the only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles exist side by side. Airboat tours depart throughout the day from quirky Everglades City.

Collier and Lee counties take pride in their Parks and Recreation departments. Collier alone has more than a dozen family-friendly parks perfect for picnicking and fun.

Don't miss the popular Teddy Bear Museum of Naples that houses more than 3,000 cuddly bears.
