In 2010 the Boston Red Sox moved their Spring Training home from the quant, City of Palms Park in the well populated downtown Fort Myers, to the more rural JetBlue Park. The new facility has more space and better dining options on site, but it's also farther from local restaurants and shopping.
Even so, there are still a number of excellent choices within a five to ten minute radios of the so-called Fenway South, just east of Interstate 75.
About four miles from the park, and just west of I-75, there is a cluster of restaurants ranging from Italian (Two Meatballs in the Kitchen) to Asian (Origami). And if you want a little downhome cookin’ like grits, frog legs and meatloaf, try the comfort cuisine at Fancy’s Southern Cafe.
There are also some spots that may seem like an unlikely choice, such as Artisan Gelato by Norman Love, yet this local shop serves much more than refreshing, gourmet frozen treats.
With a range of atmospheres and menus, one of these 10Best dining spots is sure to satisfy your culinary cravings, both before and after the game.
