THE GATEWAY TO
Situated between Tampa and Miami on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Fort Myers is a growing city. The “City of Palms” has long lured vacationers with its year-round warmth, lush flora, waterways and proximity to white sand beaches. These qualities have attracted such notable seasonal visitors as Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone, and help lure new residents to the area, as well.
Once thought of as a retirement town, Fort Myers offers an abundance of outdoor activities, like boating, fishing, hiking, biking, tennis, pickleball and golf. It has also grown more diverse, providing myriad cultural and dining diversions, from local theater troupes to an array of cuisines from renowned chefs.
