The podcast that's a beach break for your ears

While there’s little chance of a white Christmas in Florida, you can still be merry and bright!

You may not know it, but Fort Myers is home to a thriving theater scene, with several theater companies operating in the area.

Strolling hand-in-hand along white-sand beaches. Listening to the gulf’s waves gently crash on the shore. Watching the sky brilliantly transform as the sun sets on another perfect day.

On Southwest Florida’s Gulf Coast, music is as ingrained in the local culture as sunshine and sand. That’s why on any given night you’d be hard pressed to find a bar or restaurant that wasn’t showcasing local tunes.

You could miss it on a map, or drive right through the middle a dozen times, without knowing it had a name. Key West comes to mind, what with the neon buildings, laidback vibe and eccentric artistry. But this tiny island is no Key West.

Fort Myers treats visitors to an abundance of wildlife, attractions and memories. From restored turn-of-the-century villages to wildlife refuges, these popular museums are perfect family-friendly excursions.

Family fun is never far away in Southwest Florida. While fun can always be had on the beach, amusement parks and other kid-friendly destinations are always a big hit while on vacation.

After kayaking past the mangroves of Tarpon Bay, shelling on Sanibel’s sun-soaked shores or venturing through historic Native American sites, chances are you’ll work up quite the appetite.

What better way to unwind under the warmth of the Florida sun than with a cool brew on hand?

After a day of drinking up the sunshine, it’s time for a night of drinking in the good times at some of the best bars, taverns, pubs and lounges in Fort Myers. Put on a smile and raise a glass – we’re going out. Cheers!

When the holiday hors d’oeuvres and seasonal sips that filled you with holiday spirit have left you feeling plain full, ditch the treadmill-stair climber-stationary bike routine.

When it comes to enjoying the outdoors in Florida, luxuriant beaches and lush golf courses are likely the first scenes that come to mind. But in Fort Myers, dining outdoors is every bit as popular a pastime as sunbathing and

Shrimp, grouper, stone crabs and Key lime pie seem to be the four food groups most often associated with The Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel, but the area’s cuisine is far more worldly than that. Once you get your seafood and sugar quota, it’s t
