About Fort Myers, FL
Downtown Fort Myers — known as the River District and the City of Palms (cruise down McGregor Boulevard and you’ll see why) — is bustling with culture, history and ecology. Stretching along the waterfront of the Caloosahatchee River, Fort Myers’ original brick-lined streets offer endless shops, art galleries, restaurants, nightlife and other attractions.
Rent A Car – See The City
Once you’ve experienced downtown Fort Myers, head just south to check out the historic homes, laboratory, museum and 20 acres of tropical gardens of the Edison and Ford Winter Estates.
For a blend of town and country, venture up the road to North Fort Myers, where you can explore nature trails, go horseback riding, fish or paddle the Great Calusa Blueway (be on the lookout for manatees!). While you’re in the area, stop by The Shell Factory to see the world’s largest collection of shells and coral.
Even better, drive 30 minutes southwest of downtown to watch the sunset on Fort Myers Beach, situated along seven miles of coastline on Estero Island on the Gulf of Mexico.
Explore The Region
Travel over the 3-mile-long Sanibel Causeway to enjoy the slow pace of island life on Sanibel and Captiva, where nature flourishes and beaches are brimming with seashells. From the southern tip of Sanibel Island’s Lighthouse Park Beach to the romantic beaches of Captiva, this stretch of sand offers no shortage of great spots to picnic, lounge or steal a smooch.
Sanibel is also home to the 6,400-acre J.N. “Ding” Darling Wildlife Refuge, which includes more than 200 species of birds, 60 types of reptiles and 35 mammal species, as well as trails for biking, hiking and paddling.
Just north of Sanibel and Captiva, Pine Island is a quirky artists’ enclave that welcomes visitors with homegrown shops, galleries and fish markets.
