Fun Florida Town - Matlacha, FL

Matlacha, FL, United States

Flag
If you are looking to kick back and relax or go out for some fun times, check out Matlacha, FL. This town has so many fun gift shops and seafood style restaurants, home-town bars with live music and more. You know you're in "older Florida" when you see a mullet-throwing contest. Something to see for a lot of laughs. Matlacha has the "most fishingest" bridge in the world (so they claim) and the fish are cool! There are some neat art galleries here and the stores have many really fun treasures. Not all your typical tourist stuff. We had a lot of fun here. It's only about 20 minutes from Ft Myers.

Hotels

Bridgewater Inn
Bridgewater Inn
As the name implies this is an inn located right next to the Matlacha Bridge. You can get a room that is dockside and you can fish from the dock if you want. It is right on the road and it can get very busy.

This is supposed to be the most "fishingest" bridge in the world. We did not fish from it but it's a cool bridge.

They have the best ice cream and the staff was fantastic. We got to sample some different flavors before choosing which ones we wanted. What a treat!

We were a little surprised at the prices of this place. They were higher than we expected but the food was good.

Shopping

Island Treasures - Tropical Clothing & Gifts
This had always been my favorite shop in Matlacha but the quality has changed over the years and they have more touristy cheap stuff now. It's not as good as it once was.

This is a neat gift shop/gallery right off of the Great Licks ice cream place. We enjoyed many of the items they had in this shop
