Kapok Tree, Clearwater, Florida

Kapok Tree Inn was located in Davie FL between Flamingo and 130th Ave. My mother who is now 96 took me and my daughter and son in the 1970's. We loved to explore the grounds. Many weddings occurred there also. Unfortunately it was torn down years ago. Would love some history on it.

FLORIDA BACKROADS TRAVEL SAYS:

The original Kapok Tree Inn was located in Clearwater, Florida. The one in Davie, was (I think), opened later on by the original owner. I've been to the one in Clearwater (it's torn down also), but never had the pleasure of visiting the one you are talking about. I've attached a postcard of the original Kapok Inn.

THE TREE!
by: Meg Hagman

What I remember about the Kapok Tree Inn is the magnificent and enormous kapok tree around which the Inn was built. To a young teenager that tree was otherworldly. I would love to see a picture.

I wish it would come Back.
by: Juanita McCullough

I was living in Davie in 1976 and the Kapok Tree was beautiful and the dining area was very nice. You had your choice of where you wanted to eat. My favorite was the Chandelier Room. I miss those days.

I wish they would build another restaurant.

Amen.
