Fort Myers is a bustling metropolis with ecological, historical and cultural attractions, as well as shopping across the spectrum – high-end outlets, antiques, boutiques, and outdoor malls. Dining and nightlife entertain when the sun goes down, with almost nightly spectacular “shows” as it sinks over the Caloosahatchee River.
Fort Myers is the perfect place to soak up some history – take a historic downtown walking tour with the Southwest Florida Museum of History, or take advantage of the ample opportunities for antique hunting. You could also take the kids to the Imaginarium Hands-On Museum & Aquarium for an afternoon of hands-on learning and exploration. Budding historians, scientists, and inventors will want to take a narrated tour of the Edison and Ford Winter Estates, just south of downtown – children of all ages will enjoy the indoor/outdoor celebration of the prolific inventors’ and industrialists’ lives.
