Cheeca Lives!

It couldn't happen any sooner... fishing captains, tour operators, retailers, hoteliers, and everyone associated with tourism (most everyone here) can't wait for Islamorada's Cheeca Lodge & Spa to reopen this December 15th. 

Our national economic problems coupled with the loss of Cheeca really hurt our little town. It made me think of the Joni Mitchell song: "with a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swinging hot spot... you don't know what you've got till it's gone." That's the way most people I know feel about our temporary loss of Cheeca.
