In the southwest corner of the southern U.S. state of Florida lies Lee County, which calls Fort Myers its county seat. The City of Palms is also the commercial and financial center of the county and a great jumping-off point for visitors who want to explore the southwest region of Florida.
Two famous Americans, Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, called Fort Myers their winter homes and their estates, The Mangoes and Seminole Lodge, respectively, are now tourist attractions visited by travelers to the area each year. Fort Myers played a major role in the Florida portion of the American Indian Wars due to its strategic location and easy access to waterways in the area.

I lived in Fort Myers for 12 years. It’s a lovely area to relax but how is it that everyone says the number one thing to do is go to an orange juice store? If you come here, take a boat ride on Sundance Cruises, go to Lover’s Key for the day and rent kayaks, go to Ding Darling, or tour downtown. Please don’t leave your trash on the beach and be respectful of the locals who are just trying to go to work and live their lives.
This city is my home. I've seen the development throughout 20 years of how this city has been built up from the bottom. It's so up and coming with many national businesses launching regional, national, and headquarter locations here. It's been known as the "snow bird" city but that has been changing in the last 5 years with Florida Gulf Coast University bringing in students and young people and giving the city life again. You're within access to some of the best beaches in the world such as Sanibel and Captiva. And you can't beat the cost of living down here. Fort Myers is the perfect place for your beach getaway that avoids crazy party goers and gives you the relaxing vacation your family and friends are looking for. This place was my home for 20 years and I always enjoy every visit back here and constantly finding something new each trip back home.
I've always considered Fort Myers to be more of a base of operations for visiting Sanibel and Captiva. That said, the beaches along the intercoastal waterway and the Sanibel Causeway, itself, are picturesque and you can stay in the local hotels for much less than you would pay on island.
Downtown Fort Myers Water District! Old town with new flare! Great Restaurants and night Clubs oh and don't miss the Sky Bar on Hendry St ! New Years Eve ball Drop - Party! Bike Nights! And so much more!
