Fort Myers is the county seat of Lee County. The city is named after Colonel Abraham Myers.
A major tourist destination! The winter homes of Thomas Edison (“Seminole Lodge”) and Henry Ford (“The Mangoes”) are a primary tourist attraction in the region.
Fort Myers was one of the first forts built along the Caloosahatchee River as a base of operations against the Seminole Indians during the American Indian Wars. During the Seminole Wars, Fort Myers was a strategic location for its access to the Atlantic waterways.
An area rich with history too!
Fort Myers Beach
Fort Myers Beach is a town located on Estero Island in Lee County.
Arrived on a Saturday afternoon for a quick beach escape before heading back home. Wanted to check this area out and want to go back to see more of what the area has to offer too.
