Main Street Murals

Okeechobee is a community that cherishes its heritage and nowhere in town is this more evident than Parrott Avenue. Like the main streets of many historic communities, Parrott Avenue features a number of one- to three-story, brick and stucco facade buildings with arched and canopied windows. Yesteryear's inviting architectural styles blend well with the contemporary community's hospitable demeanor, and larger than life murals adorn the sides of several structures along this main street. Each mural in the growing series depicts a notable event in city history, creating a unique, outdoor art and history museum of sorts.

National Day of the A

For one day a year, Okeechobee's streets are transformed into a cattle trail as local cowboys show off their rustling and herding skills, moving cattle from east Route 70 straight through town to the Agri-Civic Center. The cattle drive launches the day's events, with a rodeo immediately following. Peruse the western marketplace, enjoy some traditional American food, and stick around for live music and dancing following the festival's second rodeo, typically held in the late afternoon. A heritage celebration honoring Okeechobee's agricultural and ranch roots, National Day of the American Cowboy is held annually in late July.

Lake Okeechobee

Freshwater, huge, and teaming with fish, Lake Okeechobee is a major tourist attraction, but for area natives it is more than just a source of income. Largely, it is the favorite local playground. Cast a line from the shore or set out for a day of game fishing. Explore the Okeechobee Trail, a paved path encircling the lake, suitable for running, hiking, and biking, and from which you can often spy a variety of wildlife. It is unlikely you will ever tire of this local, natural wonder, but if you do, there are many lakes, rivers, streams, and wildlife habitats nearby.
