Clewiston, the center of the sugar cane industry in South Florida, is perched along the rim of one of America’s largest lakes, Lake Okeechobee.
Designed by famed city planner John Nolan and established as a company town by the U.S. Sugar Company, Clewiston is called the “Sweetest Town in America.”
It sprung to life during the 1920s Florida land boom as the Atlantic Coast Line railroad pushed south.
Clewiston is a Florida Trail Gateway Community. Hikers walk right through Clewiston on their journey around Lake Okeechobee on the Florida National Scenic Trail.
