Fort Myers is a city on Estero Island in Lee County. It is one of the top travel destinations in Florida. In recent years, Fort Myers has been through remarkable growth and development.
Most famous locations to visit
Some of the most popular attractions to visit are the Henry Ford and Thomas Edison winter estates, the Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve, the famous lakes and Manatee parks, Bunche Beach, and Cape Coral. Fort Myers is a destination that tourists can visit all year round. However, peak months for visits are from December to April.
Public transportation and rental information
Fort Myers' public transportation system includes several bus routes and trolley service, as well as car rental and taxi services. The trolley system does not provide services to Downtown, but only to the river district and famous beaches. Public access marinas are available for boat owners and also for those who wish to rent boats, kayaks and paddleboards.
Overall, travelling by car is the most convenient way to get around Fort Myers, as public transport is not very accessible. Bus stops are not easy to find, while the famous spots are hard to reach on foot due to distance. Car rental is a great way to explore Fort Myers, but the service is quite expensive across Florida. Parking is available in lots, garages, and metered street parking on several locations around Fort Myers. You can book the Fort Myers car rental service online, or you can rent a car at Southwest Florida International (RSW) and Orlando International Airport (MCO).
Fort Myers taxi service is another easy way to get around the city. It's good to know that you will not be able to find taxis cruising for fares in Fort Myers. Instead, you will need to take a city taxi at the official taxi stands.
