Lake Okeechobee Entertainment District

Outdoor Explorations Incredible is the best to way to describe giant Lake O, it’s an inland sea, and gateway to the Everglades. Do trails, fish for bass, and relax with a sunset panorama – and afterwards the stars put on their show.

Lakeside
Outdoor adventure surrounds giant “Lake O.” Start with a bike, hike, or even ride a horse around the inland sea that is Lake Okeechobee. For an up-close view, take an airboat tour to view alligators, birds, and endangered tropical species. And of course, the anytime-of-year bass fishing can only be categorized as outstanding. Use the cities of Belle Glade, Pahokee, and South Bay, all bordering the lakeshore, as a starting point.
 
Black Gold and the Milky Way
There’s a certain taste to the “Glades,” and it’s delicious. This is America’s Winter Breadbasket, just about every kind of vegetable or fruit grows here. A must do is sweet corn. Find it at the Sweet Corn Fiesta. The region’s renowned “black gold” soil is honored during the Black Gold Jubilee. One of the most unbelievable things to do is when the sun goes down. Do a bit of stargazing the Milky Way at 20-Mile Bend. This locale, reachable through State Road 98/US 441 (Southern Boulevard), maintains a just right level of darkness for starlight.
