About Fort Myers, FL Attractions


Fort Myers is a hot bed for activities and events that garner statewide and national recognition. The beautiful Gulf beaches and barrier islands tend to be the biggest draw. You'll find world class shelling on Sanibel and Captiva Islands as well as romance. Nature and history lovers shouldn't miss Useppa, Cabbage Key or Cayo Costa; islands all accessible by water taxi.

Enjoy sunset and dinner cruises, parasailing and a host of water sports and activities. The largest sand sculpting competition in the state takes place on Fort Myers Beach each November and Spring Break can get quite raucous at the Lani Kai Beach Resort. 

Baseball fans flock to the area every spring to see the boys of summer in Spring Training. 

Enjoy one of the largest nighttime parades in the southeast each February. The Edison Festival's Grand Parade of Light honors the area's most famous winter resident, Thomas Edison. Tourists love to explore his restored estate and car magnate, Henry Ford's, neighboring property, all year long.

Fort Myers has numerous state parks and natural preserves as well as enviable outlet shopping, a plethora of art shows and numerous events in the downtown streets and parks; something for everyone.
