Fort Myers Visitor Information
Welcome to Florida's Gulf Coast treasure - Fort Myers, where the smiles that greet you are as warm as our subtropical sun.
The Fort Myers area offers opportunity for those who are living here year round, visitors who come back year after year and those who are here for the first time.
You will find a variety of activities - from shelling on nearby barrier islands to attending concerts at our performance halls - from visiting our historical museum to experiencing how rain is made at the children's hands-on museum.
Thomas Edison made his winter home in Fort Myers and invited his close friends, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone, to join him, which they did. Today, you can visit the Edison/Ford Estates and see the homes as they appeared when these important gentlemen and their families occupied them.
The area's future depends on careful planning for the growth we have experienced and anticipate continuing. We are committed to the pristine environment which brings economic growth and want to ensure a high quality of life for future generations.
Enjoy your visit and uncover one of the real treasures of the Gulf Coast - Fort Myers!
