Neighborhood Spotlight: Fort Myers

As communities throughout our islands, beaches and neighborhoods continue rebuilding, we’re showing what resilience is all about. In the heart of it all, the energy of Fort Myers is unstoppable as the list of places to stay, shop, dine and explore grows longer every day.

Make it a point to engage with creative culture that has always been a part of the Fort Myers lifestyle. Alliance for the Arts showcases regional works in all mediums and hosts hands-on art workshops. Catch a performance of the Gulf Coast Symphony at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, and soak up top-tier productions at Florida Repertory Theatre and The Laboratory Theater of Florida.

Enriching activities are endless throughout this vibrant neighborhood. Take the kids to learn about Southwest Florida’s natural world at the Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium. Carve out time to tee off on two 18-hole Tiger Woods–designed putting courses at PopStroke. If you’re searching for seashell-themed souvenirs or hunting for the most fashionable labels, the shops at Bell Tower and Gulf Coast Town Center are ready to welcome you. Once your shopping spree is complete, grab a local brew made onsite in a small-batch brewery, kick off your evening over craft cocktails or enjoy a waterfront dinner with beautiful views.

There’s plenty more to do, and experiences are reopening all season long. Bring the whole family along for the fun, or make it a joyful Fort Myers escape for two.
