Within our small village town of Clewiston, 2 miles by 2 miles, you can find plenty of things to do. There are things for everyone’s interest, from fishing, hiking, biking, to bird watching. Visit the Clewiston Museum or the Historical Clewiston Inn, which is known for its historical oil painting that covers the entire Everglades Lounge. There is even a Historical Movie Theatre and a Clewiston Historical Library, with many other things of interest. If you want to really find out what our townspeople do for a living, taking the Sugarland Farm Tour is highly recommend.

There is a B.P.O.E. Lodge, Mason Lodge, and VFW Post. Clewiston is the host town to many Champion Fishing Tournaments, FLW, Bass Masters and many local angler clubs.

When you want to get away for the day, Fort Myers, West Palm Beach, & Sebring, is about an hour to an hour and a half drive. You could go to the malls, big movie theatres, flea markets or go to the beach for the day. Fort Lauderdale and Miami are about 2 hours. Disney World and the attractions in the Orlando area are about 3 to 4 hour drive. Also, within an hour or so you could visit Big Cypress Indian Reservation. There you will find Billie Swamp Safari and  The AH-TAH-THI-KI Museum.
