The city of Fort Meyers nestles along the Caloosahatchee River, just a short distance from the delightful white sands and turquoise waters of Fort Myers Beach. Its charming brick-lined main street can lead you to Thomas Edison's winter home and laboratory but, if you explore a little further, you could be kayaking the Everglades, taking in the cultural delights of Naples or checking out the sophisticated splendours of Tampa and St. Petersburg.
Butterfly Estates – In the river district of the city is a delightful butterfly conservatory that is home to all the species of butterfly that are native to Florida. With a scenic background of cascading waterfalls and exotic flora you can be entranced by the sight of thousands of butterflies floating past you.
Edison and Ford Winter Estates – Take a guided tour through this spacious museum that showcases hundreds of Edison’s and Ford’s inventions. The exhibits are brought to life with interactive displays and videos.
Everglades National Park – Fort Meyers offers the ideal base to launch yourself into the natural delights of the Everglades. Whether you would prefer to kayak through the mangroves, enjoy a photography safari or walk through the swamps you’ll be back in time to enjoy the city’s fine dining and bars.
Day trip to Naples — How better to see all that Naples has to offer from your base in Fort Meyers than on an organised segway tour? You’ll be able to glide to the city's captivating landmarks as you admire its pristine beaches and luxurious million-dollar homes.
The charming beach near the city provides plenty to feast your eyes on during the day with its white sands and turquoise waters. A stroll through the river district of the city offers a way to enjoy the waters inland and, of course, the Everglade mangroves await you not too far away. Lee County Manatee Park gives you the chance to catch a glimpse of these reclusive creatures and the Southwest Florida Museum of History helps you understand a bit more about the culture of the area you are visiting.
Relaxing is the name of the game in Fort Myers, and it certainly provides plenty of ways to do just that! There is fishing, boating, golfing, kayaking, hiking, swimming, diving and biking but, if that all sounds a little too energetic, why not just take yourself down to the beach and lie back in the warm, welcoming sands? There are a huge number of quality restaurants to serve you sea food and local specialities and you can also find plenty of relaxing bars to wind down in the evening after that strenuous day of relaxing. Life really can be a beach!
