Positioned on the Gulf of Mexico, Fort Myers is easily accessible from anywhere in the state and direct flights arrive daily at Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW).

Visitors from all walks of life will find the vibrant neighborhoods full of exciting ways to fill their vacations.
Spend at least one day visiting secluded islands, many of which are only accessible by boat. Take one of several charters leaving from Sanibel and Captiva islands, and book a private tour or rent a boat. Nature enthusiasts of all ages will find enriching insights at J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge where there’s birdlife and native flora. History buffs will want to pay a visit to the Edison and Ford Winter Estates, and foodies can indulge in fresh seafood while savoring perfect sunsets in Cape Coral.
With resilience and optimism, the community is working hard to rebuild. Many businesses have reopened their doors, with more reopening each day .
