Ochopee Post Office

38000 Tamiami Trail East

Ochopee Post Office in the Everglades is the smallest in the United States. The building, 8 feet 4 inches deep and about 7 feet wide, once was a shed to store tools and tomatoes. Now it's a full-fledged post office with room for only a single clerk. It has 40 P.O. boxes and sends a carrier out six days a week on a 170-mile route to serve 300 patrons who dwell mostly in the middle of nowhere.

You'll find the post office about 65 miles west of Miami or 35 miles east of Naples on U.S. 41, also known as the Tamiami Trail. Be alert, the tiny post office is easy to miss.

Awesome and very unique roadside point of interest. Cool place to take a pic. The postman was very friendly and a fellow Trekky.

Such a tiny lil' place but with a friendly face behind the sliding door. Mailed a nice Manatee post card to my best friend from here.

Great place for a short photo stop. Very friendly postal officer. Tip: Send a (snail mail) postcard - they have nice postcards (with the post office on it) with special postmarks. A nice souvenir for your loved ones at home.

This tiny post office is one of the few small rural post offices left in Florida. It is so small that it holds the distinction of being the the smallest post office in the United States. It serves the surrounding populations of Miccosukee and Seminole Indians. This is a nice spot to stop for a photo and if you have something to mail it will be deliver with a unique post mark.
