Fort Myers Beach is a favorite destination of many locals, snowbirds and vacationers. The island boasts miles of white, sandy beaches along the Gulf of Mexico, where the ocean floor slopes gently towards the horizon with no sudden drop-offs or big waves. These beaches are the perfect place to spend the day, and the breathtaking sunsets are known the world over.
With its world famous McGregor Boulevard, Fort Myers lies beside the beautiful Caloosahatchee River, just across the water from Cape Coral. The islands of Sanibel, Captiva, and Fort Myers Beach, famous for their white sandy beaches and tropical island atmosphere are just minutes away. As its nickname suggests, the city boasts lush green landscapes of palms, mangrove and hibiscus and a year-round tropical climate. Among its many attractions are championship golf courses, fine dining and a rich variety of outlet shopping. Fort Myers is the spring training home to the Boston Red Sox, and the Minnesota Twins. Also home to the Thomas Edison & Henry Ford winter mansions, South Fort Myers is a ½ hour drivetime from Naples; 1 hour from The Everglades National Park; and 2½ hours from Miami and Tampa airports.
