Located on the banks of the Caloosahatchee Intercoastal Waterway just minutes from the Gulf of Mexico, Fort Myers is the area's oldest city. Called the "City of Palms," it is rich in Old South ambiance and history.

Once the winter retreat of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, their stately homes are now among the area's most popular attractions. Both are located on McGregor Boulevard, a grand thoroughfare lined with over 1,800 majestic royal palm trees.

Fort Myers' riverfront areas offer some of the best dining. Whether you're taking in the ambiance at one of the charming cafes or bistros in the bustling downtown historic district, or enjoying fresh seafood overlooking the Intercoastal Waterway, Fort Myers provides an array of creative and delectable dining experiences. When the sun goes down, the city comes alive with a variety of theater and nightlife opportunities.

Fort Myers also offers plenty of golf, shopping and museums. A complete range of accommodations includes marinas for overnight boaters. All of it is just minutes from the beaches centered in one of Florida's most historic cities — Fort Myers.
