Fort Myers, Florida Travel Guide

Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach

There are a wide variety of things to see and do in Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach. The Boston Red Sox hold spring training here, so the cozy ballpark gives you preseason peeks at some big-time names in Major League Baseball.

If you’re more interested in concerts, comedy, and lavish Broadway productions, be sure to check the lineup at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Center. Also the Imaginarium Hands-On Museum, and the Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium are delightful places to stimulate your imagination and have some fun. Don’t worry, there are also plenty of golf courses to enjoy, too. On nearby Fort Myers Beach, the tropical bars at seaside hotels are ideal for relaxation. Or head for the beach and rent a watercraft. Whatever your pleasure, make sure Fort Myers is on your Florida vacation itinerary.

America’s most famous inventor, Thomas Edison, and one of America’s most successful industrialists, Henry Ford, were among the millions who enjoy spending their winters in the warm breezes of Fort Myers, Southwest Florida’s “City of Palms.” Vacationers can visit Edison’s laboratory and museum, and Ford’s winter estates and gardens, which are both open year-round. From there it’s only a short hop to Fort Myers’ downtown River District. On virtually every corner of this historic area overlooking the scenic Caloosahatchee River are theaters, shops, restaurants, bakeries, cafés and wine bars. Thanks to Southwest Florida’s mild climate, you can enjoy dinner al fresco. Then maybe take in a show at the Florida Repertory. There’s always something to see and do in Fort Myers.
