    Immokalee has seen its share of hunters, trappers, cowmen, and missionaries since it was first settled in the late 1800s. Its name means “my home” in the Seminole language, a nod to one of two Indian tribes that occupied the area - the ancient Calusa tribe were early occupants. As the largest inland community in Collier County, it has a thriving agriculture industry. Large farms produce a large amount of the United States fresh produce in the growing season from November-April. Immokalee's walkable downtown features the First Street Zocalo, a plaza including benches, shaded areas, and a bandstand. Enjoy a little R&R while exploring the quaint town's shops and restaurants. Since undergoing a successful environmental restoration, Lake Trafford is regaining its previous status as a top bass fishing destination.

    Signature events in Immokalee include many live concerts and other special events at the Seminole Casino Hotel, full-moon hikes with Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed (CREW) Land & Water Trust, the Immokalee Cattle Drive & Jamboree (March), Immokalee Harvest Festival (April), the Sunflower Festival (October) and the Christmas Around the World Parade (December).
