Fort Myers, Florida
Ft. Myers was originally settled in the 1850s as a military outpost and protective fort against the Seminole Indians. Once the Seminole's moved westward, the fort was abandoned off and on, and the few settlers who found it kept it a sleepy town.
Its location on Florida's west coast where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Caloosahatchee River was too important and by the late 1800s, it became Florida's biggest western city.The turn of the 20th Century saw Ft. Myers becoming a major tourist destination, and paired with its sister city, Coral Gables, that attraction has lasted. The two cities still thrive and are considered the gateways to the numerous western Florida islands.
Aside from great beaches, there's plenty to do in Ft. Myers. It is home to two MLB teams for their spring training camps so the baseball fan has plenty of opportunity to see teams in action. There are more than 50 great golf courses which are not only quality courses but offer incredible scenery as well. The city has extensive parks and recreational programs along with the Calusa Nature Center which provides nature trails.
Ft. Myers was also the winter home of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. Edison's home is now a museum and botanical garden. It's enjoyed just as much by locals as by tourists.

When searching for your Ft. Myers apartment, you'll find a wide variety of choices. The downtown area is being revitalized. It is currently a very affordable option and full of a younger crowd of renters.
The McGregor area has the easiest access to beaches so factor that in if you plan to spend a lot of time near the water. Cape Coral is full of bargains but if you want the high end, look in the northern portion of the city.
Dining out in Ft. Myers can be as varied as you want your selections to be. There are great seafood places especially near the water. Try the Lighthouse, which is just by the bridge to Sanibel.
Good food and wonderful marina views. From romantic, candlelit evenings to patio dining at little Mexican places, you'll quickly start finding your own favorites once settled in your Ft. Myers apartment.
Dancing After Sundown
After the sun goes down, people go clubbing in Ft. Myers. Start downtown with either the Brick Bar or the Sky Bar. They're in the same building. Brick has all kinds of music from karaoke to blues, and the Sky is an outdoor dancing club with live bands and a great view of the river.
Ricochet is a country western place which is also good for dancing. If a sports bar is more what you like, give the Ft. Myers Ale House a shot. No matter where your Ft. Myer apartment is located, you'll be near some action.
