Great way to spend a few hours in the afternoon or evening. Lots of shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Spend some time in the park like setting on the waterway. Fort Myers has done a great job of reinventing all of downtown.

Downtown Fort Myers is very nice, easy to walk. You'll want to wander off the sidewalks into the courtyards that sit behind many buildings to find even more things/ places to see

Went to the Art show this summer in the River District, great art, lots of choices. Best part the variety of Bars and Resturants to enjoy a cool drink or maybe a bite to eat. Friendly, sunny time.

Through the 1980's Fort Myers Downtown was home to several top restaurants, a truly Southern friendly and Historic ambiance and hundreds of little businesses. In the late 1990's most of the small businesses left for malls or surrendered to the big chains. It became home...More
