Lehigh Acres

The landscape says it all.

The essence of Southwest Florida is often measured by the amount of open space to play on. If that's the case, Lehigh Acres is ready for anything. Enjoy miles of freshwater canals, well-stocked fishing lakes, tennis, horseback riding, hiking and biking trails and three quality golf courses.

Lehigh Acres Community

"The perfect place to enjoy miles of freshwater canals, great fishing, tennis, horseback riding and 15 miles of hiking and biking trails."

Formerly home to the Lucky Lee Ranch, Lehigh Acres holds the distinction of being the first retirement community built in Florida after World War II.
Today, canal-backed homes share space with a golf resort and restaurants with authentic fare as varied as German and Cuban.

Comfortably away from the pace of everyday life, Lehigh Acres offers the quiet of the Florida countryside coupled with family activities, easy access to the area's international airport and excellent shopping excursions.

Lehigh Acres is the perfect place to enjoy miles of freshwater canals, great fishing, tennis and horseback riding. Over 15 miles of hiking and mountain trails can be explored at nearby Caloosahatchee Regional Park or Hickeys Creek Mitigation Park.

Besides canals, Lehigh Acres has 16 well-stocked lakes to delight any fisherman. Bass, crappie and catfish are plentiful, and boat-launching ramps are available throughout the area.

A Day in Lehigh Acres

"Play 18 holes of golf in the morning, grab Cuban specialties for lunch, stroll along the river and enjoy a leisurely wine tasting."

Hit the links in the morning for a challenging round of golf at Mirror Lakes Golf Club.

After lunch at one of the savory food joints in town (Dona Goya Cuban Cafeteria or a boxed picnic lunch from Rib City Grill), continue to celebrate the outdoors at Caloosahatchee Regional Park in Alva, where a walk down shaded Palmetto Path puts visitors in a "natural" state of mind along the famed river of the Calusa Indians.

Top off your day with a wine tasting at Eden Vineyards, also in Alva, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the last tasting at 3:30 p.m.
