A thriving city, rich in history and nature, Fort Myers serves as gateway to a stretch of islands including the Sanibel area, known for their white-sand beaches, famous shelling, bird life and recreational opportunities.
The city hugs the shores of the wide Caloosahatchee River. Professional theater, a sophisticated performing arts hall and two sports parks, which host the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins for spring training, provide entertainment in the Fort Myers area.
Downtown is evolving into a lively night scene where clubs, coffee houses, street performers and cafes draw a young, artsy crowd. For nature lovers, parks preserve fragile habitats while providing trails for hiking, biking and paddling. Manatee Park is home to a herd of endangered Florida manatees that come to winter in its warm waters every year. Visitors can kayak among them or listen to their singing through special hydrophones.
Roseate spoonbills, bald eagles, ospreys, manatees, dolphin, stingrays, tarpon and bob cats dwell in forests and waters of the area.
