Fort Myers Airport Guide

With so much to see, you may not have time for the beach in Fort Myers. Begin at the Butterfly Estates, where every type of butterfly that lives in Florida is bred and conserved. The estates of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford are fantastic for their insight into the origins of the city. Decorated as they would have been in their day, both houses are a fascinating walk through time. In the evening, after a hard day’s work on your tan on the beach, try the Groove Street Grill which fancies itself as the best grill/disco on the planet.

Fort Myers Info

Fort Myers, founded in 1850 as Fort Harvie, began as a simple fort that protected the region from the attacks of the local Seminole Indians. Gradually, homes sprang up around it under the shadow of its protection. It wasn’t until nearly a century later that people recognised the beauty of the shoreline and tourism slowly grew. Today it is one of Southwest Florida’s most popular resorts and has sprouted several developments catering for retirees from the colder north.

Fort Myers Trivia:
  • Thomas Edison and Henry Ford both had homes in Fort Myers
  • The city has been extensively damaged by two hurricanes in the last decade
  • The city is considered to be the gateway to southwest Florida.
  • It’s one of the state’s main holiday resorts for Florida residents who go there for the relatively quiet and unspoilt beaches.
