Florida’s west coast has Palm Beach, and the east? The east has Fort Meyers, a city with a little something for every beach lover, from spring-breaking frat boys to sun-seeking snowbirds to families with kids. Fort Meyers’ location at the mouth of the Caloosahatchee (gesundheit!) River means visitors have loads of watersports to choose from, plus nearby access to estuaries, an aquatic preserve, a generous sprinkling of islands and keys, and, of course, beautiful beaches. Even Thomas Edison and Henry Ford found a stretch of shoreline to enjoy when they weren’t revolutionizing life as we know it today. Discover your favorite stretch of beach to enjoy from our Fort Meyers vacation rentals.
Florida might look like a narrow peninsula hanging off the end of the US, but it’s actually 160 miles wide—much too big to watch both sunrise and sunset over the water from any single location. That is, unless you stay a South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island. Start your day with your morning cup gazing out at sparkling Pine Island Sound, then finish it with cocktails on the Gulf side.
See Fort Meyers from some of the most brilliant eyes in American history by exploring Edison and Ford Winter Estates and Historic District. Palm trees shade a research lab, museum, and botanical gardens. When you’re ready to let your own ideas start percolating, head back to your accommodations at The Hibiscus House Bed and Breakfast. Relax and let inspiration come to you!
