This place looks unloved and virtually abandonned. The purpose of the place seems unclear as there is limited information and even less available to purchase. Whilst we were advised where to go for the national park overall we got better and more informative advice and information about the locality from one of the local airboat companies than from this place....

If you are looking for a modern facility with updated displays and material, this really isn't your shop. There is a minimal amount of brochures, postcards and displays about the area. However, if you engage the clerk with intelligent questions about the area, you will learn more than you could have from reading any brochure. Everglades City is not a... More

There was a helpful person working and a few brochures, but nothing else at this Chamber of Commerce information center. The worker told us they'd sold everything and no one had gotten around tonreordering for the new season.

Good location nice building but desperately needs more bathrooms. We finally had to "go" at the station across the street. All in all, everglades city does not treat tourists well and has very few facilities a day is not friendly. A long way to drive out of the way. Better to stay down the road. Wostensibly air boats is the... More

If the woman staffing the center had been more bored we would have thought she was dead. There was limited information and no interest on her part to offer us anything. Drink and snack machines were the best it had to offer.

Friendly clerk has all the info about the attractions nearby. Reminds me of the old time FLorida atmosphere. Worth a stop.

stop here first to get area highlights. Good place for maps, coupons and other information. It is on FL 29 and FL 41. But pay attention to the flashing red/yellow light at the corner. Be alert.

A small tourist information building that has always been staffed with people ranging from nice to ok. We are locals but stop often to check on any new information and seeing how the bathrooms are few on old Alligator Alley this is a must. With that said bathrooms on old alligator alley range from terrible to not so good and... More

Be sure to stop here to get information on the area. The helpful people are local and have lots of information to share that won't necessarily be found in a guide book. We were glad we stopped.
