Museum Birthday, Tamiami Trail Anniversary Celebration & Trail Town Designation!

Come to historic Everglades City and celebrate the 21st birthday of the Museum of the Everglades and the 91st anniversary of the opening of the Tamiami Trail.  Learn how the early settlers braved the elements to complete the road that connected Miami to Tampa and opened up the west coast of Florida and see the wonderful heritage and history of the area captured in the Museum’s homage to the area.

In addition to the trail celebration, the Florida Office of Greenways and Trails will be presenting the City with the official designation as a Florida Trail Town for the amazing paddling trails, hiking trails and biking trails that weave through the scenic expanse of the Everglades and surrounding parks.
