Ft. Myers sits along the natural splendor and shoreline of the Caloosahatchee River and is nestled around the historic city center. Now a blend of young and old, Ft. Myers is known for its fabulous winter weather. Its most famous resident, Thomas Edison, spent his winters here seeking an alterative to rubber for Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone. His deep respect for nature prompted him to import the Royal Palms still lining both sides of McGregor Boulevard - hence the nickname – The City of Palms. Well known communities in Ft. Myers include Gulf Harbour, Miromar Lakes, Moody River Estates, Paseo, Renaissance, and The Plantation.

Myers Historical Museum, Harborside Events Center in old Ft. Myers, cruises from the Yacht Basin, and the Southwest Florida Enterprise Center which is actively engaged in revitalizing the downtown area of Ft. Myers.
