The city of Okeechobee is ideal for a relaxing vacation. Situated along the northern rim of Lake Okeechobee, Florida’s central inland sea,, the city's name means 'big water' in the language of the Hitchiti tribe.
Okeechobee is packed with culture, attractions, nature, and welcoming locals. Whether you're looking to unwind and be pampered or get active in nature, there's something for every traveler in this city.
Okeechobee is considered the Specked Perch capital of the world, and so naturally, there is a large fishing community here. Plenty of stores rent fishing equipment throughout the city, as well as offer boat tours. When in the city, make sure to spend some time on the water -- it's incredibly relaxing and a true local pastime.
Elsewhere, Okeechobee’s Main Street includes a range of shops and restaurants, including a local favorite, Gladys’ Restaurant. Flagler Park is just off Main street and is a great place for the family to take in a stroll; there's even a helicopter and tank in the park to honor local veterans, along with a war memorial. Flagler Park also has a butterfly garden with colorful sculptures of butterflies and an impressive selection of colorful plants.
Alternatively, downtown Okeechobee has two flea markets -- The Trading Post Flea Market and The Big O Flea Market -- that are great for getting a bargain and a local souvenir from your trip.
Other options for adventure include Taylor Creek Stormwater Treatment Area which has serene views of the wilderness, and visitors can see alligators, as well as go running or biking on the trails. Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park is equally beautiful and just a short distance from the downtown area, with over 100 miles of hiking trails and swamp buggy tours.
Stay close to downtown areas to be near to all the attractions and a range of restaurants. Okeechobee has a wide selection of rentals including vacation homes, apartments, condos, cabins, and hotels. Most properties come with full kitchens, living areas, laundry services, and even a hot tub -- ideal for the perfect vacation with family and friends.
