Fort Myers

A one hour drive south brings you to Fort Myers, an interesting blend of young and old.
An extensive renovation of the historic downtown waterfront is underway, with new restaurants, recreation areas, nightclubs, apartments, and artistic venues.
If you travel to Fort Myers it's also a great idea to visit the beautiful islands of Sanibel and Captiva which can easily be accessed via the causeway, pictured.
Fort Myers is the home of the fabulous flea-market, an absolute bargain hunter's dream.
The Key West Express, Florida Keys ferry also leaves from here.
