Fort Myers Beach, Florida, located
on Estero Island, has been dubbed the "safest beach in the world," because of its soft currents, shallow water, and gently
sloping terrain. Much like Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Fort Myers Beach is filled with tee-shirt shops, restaurants, and
gift boutiques. Outdoor activities, like water skiing, parasailing, boating, fishing, golf, and seven miles of beautiful beaches
are the main attraction. Fort Myers Beach draws vacationers in with its unpretentious charm. From the moment you enter the
town from the suprisingly high Matanzas Bridge, you know you're entering a fun zone. The town's down-home image and reputation
as "the safest beach in the world" have led to its increasing popularity as a great family vacation spot. Its hopping nightlife
has also made it one of the biggest spring break destinations outside Daytona.
Fort Myers Beach welcomes visitors
with an attitude as wide-open and inviting as its sandy shoreline. Access to Estero Island, the barrier island on which the
town lies, is gained through Lover's Key at the south end or the Matanzas Bridge from the north. The entrance at the north
end has an added perk; as you reach the crest of the bridge, you're afforded the best view of Fort Myers Beach to be had anywhere.
As you descend, you can catch a glimpse of the 100 or so trawlers that make up the town's shrimp industry. Shrimping has always
been an integral part of the local economy, and you'll find Gulf shrimp on almost every local menu. The Shrimp Festival celebrates
the industry, with one of the highlights being the annual Blessing of the Fleet.
Wide, white-sand beaches bring visitors
to Fort Myers Beach year after year. Over 30 beach access points are located along Estero Blvd., some with parking and some
for pedestrian traffic only. Peaceful surroundings make these great places to go and just enjoy the beach. A great family
beach, Lynn Hall Memorial Park is also a favorite among teenagers and young people. The centerpiece of the park, Fort Myers
Beach Pier, abounds with fishermen and local waterfowl. The pelicans especially enjoy the pier, and every post seems to have
its prerequisite occupant perched on top. Bowditch Point, a lovely 17-acre park that fronts both the beach and the bay, welcomes
visitors with an unspoiled wide sandy beach and beautiful views of nearby barrier islands. Beach lovers can park at the Main
Street Park and Ride parking lot and catch a tram, which runs every 15 minutes.
Beyond the beach, Fort Myers Beach
offers myriad activities for young and young-at-hearts alike. Numerous vendors along Estero Blvd. offer jet-ski rentals and
parasailing, as well as other water sports. The kids will enjoy a splash in the Community Pool, which features a two-story
water slide, lap pool and a tad pool area with waterfalls, squirt guns and tire swings. No visit to Fort Myers Beach would
be complete without a stroll through Times Square, the main shopping and dining area of the town. If you're seeking a great
day trip, X-Press to Key West offers a high speed boat cruise to Key West with return on the same day. The cruise features
a continental breakfast served during the four-hour trip south, and live entertainment and drinks on the return trip.
Myers Beach is also near other great vacation possibilities. Close to 80 miles south, Everglades National Park makes a great
day trip. And to get a great historical perspective on all of Southwest Florida, trek less than twenty miles into Fort Myers
and see the Edison - Ford winter homes and the Fort Myers Historical Museum. Whatever your taste, Fort Myers Beach is a perfect
vacation spot for the whole family!
Sanibel Island And Other Sites
Sanibel Island is a barrier island just off
the southwest coast of Florida by Fort Myers. It is located within Lee County but in 1974 became incorporated. Sanibel Island
is about a forty-five minute car ride from Southwest Florida International Airport. There is a causeway road that leads onto
the island with a toll of $3.00.
Sanibel Island is about 12 miles long and 3 miles wide. Sanibel is known around the
world for it's fabulous shelling beaches. Due to Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying East to West instead
of North to South, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along it's beaches. Throughout the year, thousands of visitors
come to enjoy Sanibel's beaches and hunt for that special seashell.
Sanibel's population is around 5600 people, however
these numbers can quadruple during the winter when it is Sanibel Island's prime tourist season.
While Sanibel Island
is a wildlife refuge in and of itself, over 40% of the island is actually protected wildlife preserves.
over 26 miles of bike trails and over 17 miles of beautiful beaches.
Thomas Edison Home
While not a botanist by
training, Thomas Edison filled the grounds of his estate with exotic tropical plants and trees, many of which he used in his
experiments. He turned goldenrod into rubber and used bamboo for light bulb filaments. In 1925, just six years before Edisonís
death, Harvey Firestone gave the inventor a four-foot tall banyon tree that he had brought from India.
The tree now towers
over the entrance of the visitorís center, measuring 400 feet in circumference and covering half an acre. The tree ranks as
the largest banyon in Florida.
On November 20, 1994, the Edison Estate reported that lightning had struck a huge Morton
Bay fig tree on the grounds (not Edisonís banyan tree). The City removed the dead tree in April 1996 and a large section used
to create a sculpture of Fort Myerís most famous resident. Carved by Red Breckland of Port Charlotte, Florida, the statue
currently stands at the main entrance to the Edison Mall in Fort Myers.
