Best Things to Do in Fort Myers
Surrounded by both salt- and freshwater, Fort Meyers' natural surroundings are the prime reason for visiting. While you could visit the Imaginarium with the kids, the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge is the true gem for the whole family. At 6,300 acres, this refuge is the most popular nature preserve to visit. Amongst the mangroves, you'll spot crocodiles, cuckoos, and other native Floridian critters. History buffs will be thrilled after a visit to the Edison & Ford Winter Estates. After you've experienced the sights and sounds of Fort Myers, lounge on the peaceful beaches to unwind.
