Welcome to Fort Myers
Fort Myers, located on the Gulf Coast of Florida, is a popular vacation spot for Floridians as well as visitors. In its early days, Thomas Edison moved to the area to work on his famous inventions. His estate, along with friend Henry Ford's, is now a major attraction in Fort Myers, in addition to the sand and surf at nearby Fort Myers Beach.
 
Downtown Fort Myers

Downtown Fort Myers

Fort Myers, easily accessible via its international airport, has plenty to offer visitors ... from museums and educational activities along McGregor Boulevard (also home to Edison's estate) to the entertainment, restaurant and nightlife hub of downtown Fort Myers. Outlying like spokes on a wheel are more than 100 islands, including resort spots Sanibel and Captiva. These islands are known for their outstanding fishing, shelling and beachfront hotels. Other islands include Punta Gorda, Bonita Springs and Estero Island.

Two Major League Baseball teams, the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins, make their spring training homes in Fort Myers. Fort Myers has been the spring-training home of the Minnesota Twins since 1990 while the Red Sox have been coming here since 1993. Both stadiums seat about 7,000 people and provide an up-close way for fans to enjoy major league baseball.

But baseball is only one of many activities in Fort Myers. Because of the area's ideal weather year-round, there are always events underway -- from the Latin Jazz Festival in April to the annual Sandsculpting Festival in November in Fort Myers Beach.

It's no wonder Fort Myers recently made Orbitz.com's top 10 list of "fastest-growing beach destinations" in the U.S. Residents would agree that it's also a great place to live.
