Craving an adventurous summer? Sunshine? The beach? A vacation? Then off you go to Fort Myers, located in Southwest Florida, on the Gulf of Mexico. This place radiates peace and calm and yet never gets boring. The historic River District with its modern, Spanish-Floridian atmosphere and McGregor Boulevard, lined with high palm trees, are two top spots to see. You could also visit the Edison & Fort Winter Estates Museum and learn more about the two famous inventors, or check out the Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve to view some sloughs, alligators, birds, and turtles year-round. And then there’s the sea. Go shelling and enjoy the sun on deserted beaches or drink cocktails and make new friends at lively beach bars. The turquoise-colored seawater, salt on your skin, and extra fine sand between your toes will give you tropical butterflies. And if you have never watched the sun set over the Gulf, your weekend getaway is about to become even more memorable. Grab a bottle of wine, go down to the beach, and enjoy a mesmerizing view in all shades of gold and red.
