Plan to visit Matlacha, a little piece of Old Florida, this weekend. Mango Mania, now celebrating its 18th year, is a festival that promises to draw more than 8,000 attendees of all ages and interests.
It's all about mangos, of course, but it's also an opportunity to learn about "Florida's Creative Coast" and Greater Pine Island. Pine Island is 18 miles long, 2 miles wide, and consists of five unique communities that are located just off Florida's Southwestern Gulf Coast. It's hard to imagine that these secluded small towns, surrounded by mangroves, aquatic preserves, and acres of tropical plants, are only 15 minutes away from busy Cape Coral and 30 minutes away from Fort Myers.
