There is a tight-knit community spirit in Lehigh Acres, and it shines through around the year in the different festivals. The Lehigh Acres Spring Festival, held every March, features parades, pageants, car shows, and arts and crafts for everyone to enjoy. Put your salsa moves into swing in April at the Latin Music Festival, featuring live music and delicious Mexican food. In May, the smooth sounds of jazz music fill Jaycee Park for the annual Jazz in the Park event. With so much excitement happening, it is easy to see why these festivals draw thousands of people every year.
You may have visited your fair share of restaurants in other cities, but Lehigh Acres has its own blend of unique, excellent dining. For the best Cuban food, you cannot beat Azucar. This diamond in the rough of a restaurant has chewy and crisp chicken and cheese empanadas down to an edible art form. Ribs fall off the bone and into your mouth at Rib City, which always have the right spices. The Rolling Stone Libation Company is a wine bar/tapas restaurant with live music, and provides a stellar food and drink experience that you will not soon forget.
Freshwater Nature Adv
Not every city is close to the Gulf of Mexico. Not every city has dozens of free or reasonably-priced outdoor activities, either. Lehigh Acres delivers here, with activities to suit every level of thrill seeking. Fishing fans can cast a line into fresh water canals and lakes and see who can score the biggest catch. Miles of natural trails fill the parks and undeveloped acres of land here, for every experience level. Strap on some skates and go rollerblading or take your dog for a run in a park. There is heart-pounding fun, too, as you navigate deep water by kayak or canoe.
