Hosted in partnership with Fort Myers – Islands, Beaches and Neighborhoods

Fort Myers - Islands, Beaches and Neighborhoods has long been considered a treasure on the sandy Southwest Florida coastline. Warm tropical breezes, white sandy beaches, abundant wildlife, and a bounty of land and sea activities are enjoyed here year-round.

At the J.N. "DING" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, explore 7,600-acres home to 51 types of reptiles and amphibians, 32 mammal species, and more than 245 species of birds. Don’t miss the Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail, 190 miles of paddling and kayaking trails and tributaries weaving through mangrove-lined estuaries and across open Gulf waters. This kayak and canoe excursion puts paddlers face-to-face with indigenous wildlife, foliage and shell mounds, offering a peek inside Old Florida, the way the indigenous Calusa experienced it. Land lovers will have plenty of terrain to explore with Fort Myers and the surrounding area's 100+ miles of hiking and biking trails.
