Welcome to Ft. Myers, Florida
 
 
 
The county seat and commercial center of Lee County, Ft. Myers was named in honor of one of the first forts to be built along the Caloosahatchee River as a base of operations against the Seminole Indians during the Seminole Indian Wars. Once called home by Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, Ft. Myers has a vibrant and rich history starting in the 1500's with the Calusa Indians. In 1885, Thomas Edison was cruising along Florida's west coast when he came upon the little village of Ft. Myers.  Intrigued by the area, Edison built his home, as well as his laboratory along the Caloosahatchee River.  Edison was captivated by the beauty of the Royal Palms and imported and planted hundreds, lining the street to his home, thus the city became dubbed "The City of Palms". Both Edison and Fords homes remain on McGregor Blvd as a popular tourist attraction.  Edison is honored each year during the "Edison Festival of Light", as Ft. Myers celebrates his birthday on February 11, attracting thousands of visitors to the grand parade, street dances and coronation ball!
 
 
The Caloosahatchee River, part of the Intracoastal Waterway, flows through Ft. Myers providing a water pathway from the Gulf of Mexico, across Florida and to the Atlantic Ocean.  This beautiful river provides ample opportunities for incredible waterfront properties as well as water recreation, including boating, fishing, sailing and swimming. One of the world's largest tarpon migrations happens annually between the months of April and June in the area, bringing fishermen from miles around to take part in the tarpon fishing tournaments.
 
This fast growing community offers plenty of shopping malls, planetariums, arenas and nightlife.  As Ft. Myers is located along Florida's gulf coast, the opportunities for dining on fresh seafood are endless.  Combining diner and entertainment is as simple as making reservations at the local Dinner Theatre or perhaps taking a ride on the Seminole Gulf Railway's Murder Mystery Dinner Train!
 
Looking to purchase a single family home, waterfront property, farm land or even a condominium on the water? The real estate options are endless in Ft. Myers; it's the perfect place to raise a family, start a business or to spend your retirement gazing at the incredible sunsets.
