The Fort Myers in Southwest Florida first became a nationally known winter resort it is wide open beach located 20 miles (190 km) south of Tampa at the meeting point of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caloosahatchee River. The beach is so great white, soft sand like a sugar cane and no big waves which attracts the travellers all over the world to come and back this place. This beach community draws thousands of visitors from Germany, France and the United Kingdom each year. Boating, sailing, fishing and spectacular Lovers Key State Park make this island a real recreational playground. Add to that a great number of family-friendly resorts, quaint cottages, Old Florida charm, restaurants serving fresh seafood from the Gulf of Mexico and an annual Shrimp Festival, and it's a beach vacation paradise.
Fort Myers is the historical and governmental hub of Lee County. It is the gateway to the Southwest Florida region, which is a major tourist destination in Florida. The winter homes of Thomas Edison(Seminole Lodge) and Henry Ford (The Mangoes), which are both primary tourist attractions in the region, are located on McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers. The Place is known for a fantastic fishing and have event of Fort Myers Boat Parade.
Me and my Husband went at Fort Meyers for vacation and visited his friend it was a labor day. I really love the place because the beach is very charm and fantastic. The water is warm which I can stay longer for swimming and enjoy it. The sand was so fine and I never scared just to bare my foot. The interesting also for the place is about the coral because they are know for collecting shells. About shopping it's not hard to find here also because a lot of business center area and store for anything you want. Restaurant and bars are anywhere the places, so the night life is not a problem also as long as you have an ID to show that you are 21 years old above.
