The Florida region
Fort Myers is situated on the south western coast of Florida and is surrounded by beautiful white beaches. The sunsets here are spectacular and watching the sun set over the water is one of the most enjoyable things you can do. Thomas Edison and Henry Ford set the trend by making their winter homes here (and Fort Myers is still a very popular destination for those wanting to get away from cold winters at home.} It is a year round holiday spot enjoying temperatures above 75F (24C) even in winter. The charming islands of Sanibel and Captiva are a short drive across a causeway but if you really want to get away from it all, the unspoiled island of Cabbage Key can be reached by boat.
There are excellent opportunities for both golf and fishing locally but if you prefer spectator sports, you may catch either the Minnesota Twins or the Boston Red Sox during their spring training.
If shopping is more your thing, you're in the right place! Everything from designer outlets to Walmart to Pro Bass for the sportsman is within easy striking distance. The glamourous boutiques and art galleries of Naples are just a 40 minute drive away. 30 minutes further and you'll reach the famous Everglades, or head north for 1.5 hours and visit the unforgettable St Armands Circle at Sarasota. Why not take the ferry to Key West and spend the day there revisiting Hemingway's haunts.
Whether beaches, shopping or eating are your thing, you'll be spoiled for choice.
Shelling on Sanibel is heaven for some, for others it's the Bell Tower Shops, or those at Coconut Point or the Miramar Outlets. When it's time to eat there are restaurants for every taste and pocket.
A day out for the kids away from the beach might be to the waterpark in Cape Coral, or an educational visit to the
Edison Estate. Why not hire bikes on Sanibel or enjoy the wonders of nature at the J N Ding Darling National Wildlife Reserve. Or what about a day trip to Busch Gardens, 2.5 hours up the I -75? Even Disney is within reach. Or why not just laze about the pool?
One thing is for sure, you'll not have time to do it all or want to leave when it's time to go!
