It’s Impossible Not To Love The Most Eccentric Village In Florida

You might think real artist communities are a thing of the past or something you’ll only find in one of Florida’s island communities, but this authentic artist village has been growing and thriving over the years. It has blossomed into a true gem that many people, even native Floridians, have never heard of. Next time you’re headed to Southwest Florida, be sure to add a stop at this unique and fascinating community.
