Nestled along the Caloosahatchee River, Fort Myers is one of the first settlements on the Gulf Coast of Florida. The city is very well known for being the location of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford’s winter estates. Fort Myers is also called the “City of Palms” because of the beautiful, large palm trees that line the streets. Fort Myers is a very easy place to live! It has shopping and restaurants in all directions and is just minutes from the beach. The town is centrally located near Tampa, Sarasota, and Naples allowing its citizens to enjoy large cities while still experiencing the allure of Fort Myers.
