Fort Myers

Beaches, warm trade winds, and umbrella-clad beverages converge where the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River opens into the Gulf of Mexico.

Fort Meyers presents a crossroads, if you consider waterways roads, that is. If you are so inclined—and you just might be—you can follow these waterways all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. Your journey would take you to Lake Okeechobee before continuing onto the St. Lucie Canal, over slow rolling hills and through the glades. Then again, the watersports and barefoot party town of Fort Meyers Beach to the west has its own pull. Swimming, diving, kayaking, beachside hiking, and boating (with or without a line to drop in the water) have tempted lesser travelers than you before.

Rather than depart immediately, no matter which direction your soul chooses, take pause and soak up the city itself. Never at a loss for what to do in Fort Meyers, locals and return visitors alike feel all aflutter when getting to meet native Florida beauties at the Butterfly Estates. And where there are butterflies, there are sure to be flowers that are pleasing both to the proboscis and the eye.

For many travelers, all other things to do in Fort Meyers fall behind their love of the game. We mean baseball, of course. While Fort Meyers doesn’t have its own major league team, it does host Spring Training for both the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins, offering sanctuary to snowbirds and ballplayers of those cities alike. Not a baseball fan? The worthy Florida Everblades play a mean game of hockey and the Florida Gulf Coast University Eagles offer numerous athletic events

Whether you’re an intrepid explorer, party animal, or sports fan, you’ll love our Fort Meyers vacation packages because they’re the easiest way to save big on your trip, whenever you decide to go. Book today—we’ll see you there tomorrow.
