The glittering Gulf Coast beaches are the main reason to visit Fort Myers, but on arrival you’ll find plenty of reasons to stick around. The laid back attitude, great shopping, and excellent fishing make the city a great place for a holiday. Famed inventor Thomas Edison and American industrialist Henry Ford would agree: both had winter estates in the town, and the buildings are now home to museums about the famed men.
