Explore Fort Myers, Florida

Fort Myers, also known as “The City of Palms” is located in Southwestern Florida on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River. Most visitors come to Fort Myers for the deep-sea fishing, the golf courses and the famous white sand beaches and islands that line the Gulf Coast.

A renovation of the city’s downtown waterfront promises new restaurants, clubs, shops and galleries. Attractions include the winter estates of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, as well as nearby Naples and the islands of Sanibel and Captiva.

Downtown Fort Myers, also known as the River District, forms the core of a city that stretches for miles south along the Caloosahatchee River and east to the rural interior. Named for a Civil War-era army colonel, Fort Myers’ history parallels that of Florida itself.
