Fort Myers, Florida, Visitors Guide

Fort Myers, Florida, epitomizes the great outdoors! With whimsical wildlife around every corner, be sure to keep an eye out for rare and wonderful species such as the Florida manatee, Loggerhead sea turtle, and the beautiful Roseate spoonbill. Fort Myers definitely knows how to take advantage of its breathtaking natural beauty by offering tons of outdoor activities. From shelling at Sanibel Island, to fishing Boca Grande Pass, the “Tarpon Capitol of the World,” there are plenty of ways to get up-close-and-personal with the area’s incredible wildlife and scenery.

Fort Myers was built along the Caloosahatchee River during the Seminole Indian War as one of the first bases of operations in the 1800s. Now, this once small military settlement is booming with a nightlife like no other, fantastic shopping options ranging from outlet malls to boutiques, and some of the biggest events South Florida has to offer. Fort Myers, however, still holds true to the heritage and history that created it. With plenty of historical sights to visit, including the Edison Fort Winter Estates, Fort Myers makes for the perfect vacation destination with something for every age and interest.
