Day Trip: Cortez Historic Fishing Village

We will meet at the Walgreens on 54 and Collier at 10:00.  It's an hour and 20-minute drive.  We will carpool. 

Take a walk through the historic fishing village of Cortez and visit the old fish houses. Listen to locals tell the tale of yesteryear fishing in the bays and waterways of the Gulf of Mexico.

The historic Cortez Village is a National Register of Historic Places community that has worked hard to preserve its unique Florida Gulf Coast Heritage by fighting the pressures from modern development that have brought about the loss of much that was old time Florida.This commercial fishing community has opened its own Museum and through exhibits and programs it interprets a unique culture, celebrating the traditional life on the sundrenched Gulf Coast.

We will lunch at the Star Fish Restaurant.
