Fort Myers Vacations
Fort Myers vacations offer many family-friendly and educational sites that are fun for children and adults alike. You'll want to take the kids to the Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium. They'll enjoy learning about the animals and plants that are indigenous to this area. Here you can see animals in their natural habitat, such as crocodiles and snakes, and explore unusual and unique fauna. In addition, the property has an aviary, planetarium, gift shop, museum, and much more. You'll also not want to miss the Edison and Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers. Here you will learn about Henry Ford and Thomas Alva Edison, two of the greatest inventors in American history. The 20-acre estate hosts a botanical garden, museum, and eight other buildings filled with artifacts and inventions. Book a car rental in Fort Myers to enjoy these attractions and much more.
Festivals and Events
The Naples Winter Wine Festival is a two-day charity event held in late January each year with proceeds benefiting underprivileged and at-risk children. Local and celebrity chefs offer their fabulous culinary talents and local vintners auction off their wares, but be sure to book your tickets in advance. The Salty Sam's Pirate Festival is a wickedly fun event that occurs in early October. You can watch ships fire cannons in mock battles, shop for crafts and souvenirs, and dance to live music -- all while dressed in a pirate's costume!
