Preserving nature is a top priority in Fort Myers, and if you want to experience the Florida coastline without the extensive number of hotel developments, boardwalks, and crowds that are synonymous with the state's east coast, book all inclusive vacations to Fort Myers.
Fort Myers is the antithesis to Miami, and rather than beach parties and thousands of sunbathers, you will find the winter estates of business tycoon Henry Ford and inventor Thomas Edison. Between butterfly gardens, a manatee park, and plenty of eco-tours along the coast, you won't run out of ways to spend your vacation days, and learn a little something about the area as well.
If you're not keen on driving or walking, bicycle rentals are cheap and this is the perfect place to explore on two wheels. In addition to the quiet suburbs and Fort Myers beach, take a ride down McGregor Boulevard which is lined with over 2,000 palm trees, and is a testament to Edison's vision of a green Fort Myers.
