Welcome to Fort Myers
The Fort Myers area offers a town and country lifestyle in a vacationer's paradise. It's hard to believe that present-day downtown Ft. Myers was home to the original Ft. Harvie, built along the Caloosahatchee River by the military in the mid 1800s as a base of operations against the Seminole Indians. The original wood structures from back then no longer stand, but many of the buildings in downtown Ft. Myers' boast a Mediterranean Revival style that was common in the 1920s, essentially a period of boom time for all of Florida.  

Downtown Fort Myers

Today, downtown Ft. Myers, also referred to as the River District, is a hub for business, not only as the area's financial district but also a hotspot for boutiques, restaurants, cafes, jewelry and antiques stores. This area is also home to City Hall, Centennial Park, the Edison/Ford Winter Homes, the Southwest Florida Museum of History, the Imaginarium and the public library.

The best way to reach the historic area of downtown Ft. Myers is to get off I-75 at exit #141 and proceed west toward First Avenue.
