Things to do in Ft. Myers
Ford Myers hugs the shores of the Caloosahatchee River along the southern Gulf coast of Florida, and together with Cape Coral, its immediate neighbor, Fort Myers is the most southern major metropolitan area before entering the Everglades National Forest. The city enjoys a summer-like climate year round, offering opportunities to enjoy its beautiful beaches even during the winter months; famous personalities, such as Henry Ford and Thomas Alva Edison had already discovered this in the early 1900's and choose Ford Myers as their domiciles. Enjoy a stroll through their homes which now have been turned into museums or discover the world of science at the Imaginarium Science Center in downtown.
Beyond Ft. Myers
You can also plan a day trip to the east with your rental car and let the breathtaking wilderness of the Everglades National Park be your companion. Make sure to bring your camera to capture the beauty this swampy environment has to offer; there are opportunities to gently explore its surface in a canoe, or race across its waters in an airboat ride.
