Fort Myers Real Estate
Fort Myers has shed its sleepy image to emerge as one of Southwest Florida’s “best places to live” for quality of life and family fun. The seat of rapidly-growing Lee County, Fort Myers also boasts RSW airport, completely rebuilt in 2005 to accommodate the growing interest in Southwest Florida as a popular resort destination.
Often known as the “City of Palms” for beautification efforts begun in the late 1800s, Fort Myers is frequently cited by tourists for its stunning royal palms lining McGregor Boulevard -- some towering at 75 feet. Tourists are also drawn to the eclectic mix of shops and clubs emerging as part of the downtown revitalization in Fort Myers. Boating along the scenic Caloosahatchee River, tropical gardening; and 43 golf courses provide something for everyone.
More About Fort Myers
Beloved by families, Fort Myers Beach is nicknamed “the world’s safest beach” because of its shallow waters and lack of undertow.

Thomas Edison and Henry Ford were early fans of Fort Myers, selecting the region as a winter retreat. Today, visitors can tour the Edison-Ford winter estates and participate in the two-week Festival of Light extravaganza, held in Edison’s honor.
In the spring, baseball fans flock to Fort Myers to watch the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins at spring training camps.
