Fort Myers Resorts

Fort Myers is another great spot. We've come across some great finds in this outstanding area of natural beauty on the Gulf Coast.

This laid back town is also a safe place to take the whole family for a swim and it has a great reputation in that regard. Year round you can find interesting activities and festivals. The annual sandcastle competition in February as well as a shrimp festival are standouts. Come with a fishing rod for all the family and start to get to know each other again.
