Visit Magical Matlacha 110/365 Things to Do
Matlacha is a small island city northwest of Fort Myers and Cape Coral, Florida. It’s basically the causeway to Pine Island, St. James City and Bokeelia. The city itself takes only a few minutes to drive through but if you turn down the side streets you’ll see some of the prettiest wide water views and cute little things like this fun mailbox.
The city of Matlacha is sort of an artists row. On the main drag you’ll find tons of artist studios, boutiques and stores. It’s fun to just walk from shop to shop and see what is available. There are a few stores with fun mannequins out front and on the roof of the businesses.
If you’re in Bonita Springs and looking for fun things to do consider a day trip to Matlacha. It’s less than an hour away plus you can stop at some great seafood restaurants on the islands. If you do venture to Pine Island go early and tour Galt Preserve on Pine Island.
