Discovering Koreshan State Park

Estero also offers a more unique look into Southwest Florida’s history. It used to be home to the Koreshans, who believed the Earth was hollow and that they’d go on to live forever after they died.

There is also a hiking trail and the chance to rent canoes and kayaks. It’s a great place the entire family can enjoy, no matter how old you are. And you learn about a piece of Southwest Florida history even some locals don’t know about!

Located at the intersection of Corkscrew Road and U.S. 41, the state park also offers a farmers market during season and ghost tours during Halloween.

The state park is also teeming with a variety of wildlife. You never know what you might see.
