A summer season visit to Everglades City is always a time for the adventurous spirit; when the living might be laid back and quiet or stimulating with surprising developments like tropical weather samples - 'monsoon downpours' followed by brilliantly blue skies and star bright nights - unexpected wildlife visitors - gators, geckos, spoonbills, manatees - redfish fishing tournaments, backcountry kayaking and camping, and the opportunity to visit the wild in the company of other adventurous souls. There are numerous ground transport opportunities when flying in to X01; you can rent bikes, or call for pickup by restaurants and motels, rent a car from Enterprise, or just walk around the block to the Everglades National Park headquarters for a tour boat cruise and some nature education. Check the following for information on what's going on in and around Everglades City. For a rental car Enterprise would like a 24 hour notice although you can call them at Marco Island for local arrangements. If you later are heading out to the keys, you may wish to check our 100LL fuel price first.
All in all, a day or two spent here is well worth the time; just be sure to be ready for anything.
