Why It’s Great to Live in Fort Myers
By GoodGreekMoving

Slow down and live the life you were meant to live in Fort Myers, Florida. Whether you choose to relax and take in the natural beauty it has to offer, or you want to get out and enjoy yourself, Fort Myers has it all. 

Scenery

With some of the most amazing scenery around, you’ll feel like you stepped right into a movie as you gaze upon the sand dunes and walk along the sugary white beaches, watching the waves crash along the shoreline. If that’s not enough, take a walk along the Fort Myer Pier and revel in the beauty of the magnificent sunsets over the ocean. If you love nature, get out and tour the Everglades or the Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve, or jump in the car, roll the top down and take a drive along Florida’s Scenic Highway that offers 1,524 miles of picturesque scenery.

History

Fort Myers has a rich history dating back to the 1850s, when the US constructed a base during the Seminole Indian Wars. The fort was torn down in the 1870s, but some of the wood was used for buildings in what is now Downtown Fort Myers. Later on, Thomas Edison would build a winter home down here, followed by Henry Ford. The Edison and Ford Winter Estates features 20 acres of historic homes and botanical gardens, including Edison’s 1928 Botanical Research Laboratory, where different species of plants Edison planted are still there. Learn more about the city’s history through various tours, including the Haunted History of Fort Myers Walking tour, the History and Eco River Cruise, or a historical walking tour of Fort Myers. 

Entertainment

The entertainment in Fort Myers is not lacking. There is something to keep you active throughout the day. If you are into art and cultural events, Downtown River District offers the Art Walk on the first Friday of each month, keeping galleries, museums and shops open late with activities and music. If you’re into sports, catch a Minnesota Twins minor league game or a Red Sox or Minnesota Twins spring training game. Don’t forget the Seminole Casino Immokalee. Seminole Casino Immokalee is the number-one attraction in Southwest Florida and conveniently located in Fort Myers. On top of the dining and the casinos that offer table games and slots, there are concerts, comedy, and reviews at the Seminole Center.

Fort Myers is the ideal place to live if you want to escape the busy city life and move into a serene area filled with beautiful scenery, a rich and vibrant historical past and entertainment to keep you active.
