Fort Myers Local Information

A place considered the gem of Southwest Florida

The town of Fort Myers, sits along the Caloosahatchee River, which connects the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean. Fort Myers has grown from a small town, rich in Florida’s history to the bustling larger city it is today.

Also known as The City of Palms, Fort Myers was made famous by Thomas Edison and his pals Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone. They were all impressed by the tropical climate and natural beauty of the area along the River. Today, the Edison and Ford Winter Estates are one of the biggest tourist attractions in the city. It is also one of the most popular national historic sites in the United States.

Follow the famous Royal Palm tree-lined McGregor Boulevard, and you end up at one of our three, world famous islands – Fort Myers Beach on Estero Island, Sanibel Island and Captiva Island. These three barrier islands add to the desirability of living or vacationing in our part of paradise.


Along with the sun, surf, white sandy beaches, and wonderful year round climate, Fort Myers has much more to offer. Many people are attracted to the area for its famous deep sea fishing. Golf enthusiasts play over fifty public and private golf courses. Fort Myers is also the spring training home of the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins.

Wonderful theaters, museums, and great shopping all add to the Fort Myers lifestyle. Downtown Fort Myers has experienced an exciting renovation over the years and is now attracting many new restaurants, shops, and an active night life.
