Visit Ave Maria & Tour the Oratory 9/365
Ave Maria is one of the newest cities in Florida. It is located due east of Naples, Florida near Immokalee, Florida. Tom Monaghan, founder of Domino’s Pizza, created the city which also is the home base to Ave Maria Law School.
Our family has taken a few lunch trips to Ave Maria. The center of the city is a huge circle with shops and restaurants. In the very center is the Oratory which is simply beautiful. It’s an engineering marvel on the in inside. It’s simply amazing to see in person and definitely worth the drive.
There is new construction in Ave Maria (2019) so you may be able to tour some of the beautiful model homes for sale. Other fun things to do near Ave Maria include Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary and Lake Trafford Airboat Tours.
