Sandwiched between Bonita Springs and Sand Carlos Park, the Village of Estero, can be a relaxing destination for visitors. The nearby beaches offer a calming experience, while Estero’s Mound Key Archaeological State Park is a State Park to be seen. Created over 2,000 years ago from an oyster bar and rising more than 30 feet above the waters of Estero Bay, the ancient shell mounds transform the location. Being made of pottery, shells, and bones; it is believed to have been the ceremonial center of Calos for the Calusa Indians. Access to the site is by boat only, but the journey is well worth it. Another site worth seeing and more easily accessible is the Estero Bay Preserve.
Established in 1966, it was the first aquatic preserve established in the state. Fishing, cycling, hiking, picnicking, wildlife viewing, and of course boating along the 7,000 acres of mangroves are all worth experiencing.
