Welcome To Fort Myers

A Little Bit Of Everything That Makes Southwest Florida Special.

Fort Myers is one of the most livable and loveable cities in the United States. It certainly doesn’t hurt that it’s located along Southwest Florida’s Gulf Coast, where exclusive communities share the landscape with perfect white beaches, nature preserves, sensational shopping malls, and a host of cultural opportunities. Think of Fort Myers as the corner of the coast that leaves nothing to chance when it comes to the finer aspects of Florida living.

Sunny Spots to Saltwater Adventures

What is on today’s outdoor agenda? If it’s unwinding on a cozy stretch of sand, you’ll find the perfect spot at Bowditch Point Park or at Lynn Hall Memorial Park. If, however, you’re looking for a bit more adventure, Fort Myers is also a launching point for the Caloosahatchee River – a canoeing and kayaking paradise. Paddle through coastal waterways and island tributaries lined with ancient oaks dripping with moss and towering leather ferns. You’re likely to spot an abundance of marine life and shore birds as you glide through Southwest Florida’s unspoiled coastal reaches. Want a little more power? Good news – you’re living in one of the world’s boating capitals, so whether it’s backwater angling or offshore fishing and diving, just untie and go!

Shopping Large and Small

When it comes to shopping, Fort Myers brings you the best of both worlds. The Gulf Coast Town Center is an outdoor shopping playground where locals flock for major department stores, sporting goods stores, restaurants, blockbuster movies, and a whole lot more. If you’re looking for something less like a mall and more like a cozy stroll, head to the River District of Fort Myers. Here, history and high fashion come together in an eclectic mix of stylish boutiques, artisan shops, jewelers, and cafés. Turn down First Street to explore cobblestone avenues lined with fashionista shops, art galleries, and antique dealers. Major brands to local secrets – you’ll find both in Fort Myers.

Golf on the Gulf

There are more than 90 golf courses in the Fort Myers area, with many of them offering panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico from tee boxes and fairways. There are also a host of Audubon International certified courses in Fort Myers. If you love the game – scratch golfer or high handicapper – you’ll find some of the most picturesque courses in America in your new hometown. Swing away!

Seafood Anyone?

You’ll find just about every type of cuisine in Fort Myers – Italian bistros and world-class steak houses; gourmet fare and funky culinary fusion; local cafes and mom-and-pop eateries; vegetarian and vegan to Floribbean spices. But it’s seafood that tops the list! The waters off Fort Myers yield some of the finest and freshest seafood in America, including tender and sweet Gulf Pink Shrimp, a local mainstay. Add the fresh catch brought in by local fishermen each day, and you’ll almost always find grouper, snapper, wahoo, tuna, mahi-mahi, and other fresh fish on the menu. For dessert, go with the Key Lime Pie.
