Overview

Fort Myers' sugar sand beaches and thriving eco-tours make this one of Florida's best getaways. Fort Meyers Beach is an unabashed year-round party hive boasting as many breezy beach bars and fresh seafood as your sun-baked body can handle. Away from the bustle of the main beaches there are still plenty of quiet escapes to be found, scattered across the region's many islands and reserves. Matlacha is a pint-sized getaway, a colorful photo album of the region's past; Pine Island offers a quiet, laid-back vibe full of fishing and picturesque landscapes. Numerous tours also weave through the waterways, providing opportunities for fishing and spotting playful dolphins that frequent the area.

Though Fort Myer's primary charm is the laid back beaches and care-free party vibe, there's still some fun to be had inland. Chief among them is the Thomas Edison and Henry Ford Winter Estates, twin holiday retreats turned museum exploring the lives of these titans of invention and industry. Die hard baseball fans are also in for a treat in the spring, as Fort Myers is home to both the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox spring training facilities.
