With an impressive amount of preserved land and natural areas, discover miles of freshwater canals, well-stocked fishing lakes, hiking and biking trails, horseback riding, tennis and multiple golf courses.

Built as the first retirement community in Florida after World War II, Lehigh Acres serves as the residential base for much of the area. Past the subdivisions, you’ll find a rural charm, and Alva, the oldest settlement in the area. Buckingham exudes rural and historic character, while its agricultural-based economy spans on both sides of the Orange River (named for distribution of the area's most popular crop).

Start a day of leisure here on the fairway with 18 holes at Mirror Lakes Golf Club before biting into Cuban cuisine for lunch at Melody’s Cuban Cafe, or enjoy Southern cooking at the Alva Diner.

Enjoy scenic views at Hickey Creek Mitigation Park or launch a kayak to paddle the Caloosahatchee River. Set up your campsite at Caloosahatchee Regional Park or enjoy mountain biking trails.
