Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Like much of coastal Florida, where beach trips and golfing are the order of the day, Fort Myers is no different. Fort Myers is in close proximity to a number of options for beach getaways, including Cayo Costa Island State Preserve, one of Florida’s largest barrier islands. Accessible only by boat, it is a perfect spot for a nice island getaway and even features basic cabins for overnight camping, if desired. Lighthouse Beach and Fishing Pier, a Gulf beach located on nearby Sanibel Island, features a fishing pier and a boardwalk nature trail under the shadow of the historic Sanibel Island Lighthouse. Considered among the best in Southwest Florida, Fort Myers is also home to two 18-hole golf courses overseen by the Public Works Department. These are a great, affordable alternative to private country club courses, which the area also has no shortage of.

Fort Myers is also a great place to spend a relaxing day shopping. The region is home to many malls, both indoor and outdoor. The Edison Mall is a climate-controlled indoor collection of popular chain and department stores that fits all tastes and needs. For an excursion off the beaten path, be sure to check out Fleamasters Fleamarket, a 400,000 square foot market with over 900 vendors — the largest market in Southwest Florida. Fleamasters features everything from fresh produce to clothing to antiques, and even houses a music hall and stage for live entertainment.

If you’re present in Fort Myers during the winter months, be sure to check out ArtFest. Billed as “Southwest Florida’s premier art festival,” ArtFest has taken place on the Fort Myers waterfront the first weekend of February for two decades. The festival features over 200 artists displaying art of all prices, as well as food, entertainment, and celebrations.
