Plan your clients’ visit at so they can make their own #MyFortMyers memories.

Fort Myers’ islands, beaches and neighborhoods have a way of leaving a lasting impression. With white-sand beaches, serene parks and preserves, secluded islands, historical landmarks, and more, there’s a #MyFortMyers story for everyone. Send your clients to a place where memorable moments come naturally.

Plenty of outdoor experiences and attractions are now open to the public. Nature enthusiasts will find some of the best kayaking in Southwest Florida on the Great Calusa Blueway. Your clients might spot wildlife like curious manatees, playful dolphins and more than 245 species of birds. The 1-mile accessible boardwalk at Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve is perfect for exploring a native wetland ecosystem, and there are free guided walks year round on Wednesdays.

You’ll want to plan at least one day for your clients to visit secluded islands, many of which are only accessible by boat. Book a charter leaving from Sanibel or Captiva islands, send them on a private tour, or rent a boat to take them out into Pine Island Sound. Recommend they visit the famous Cabbage Key Inn — where they’ll enjoy lunch overlooking the water — then arrange an excursion for them to visit the Barbara Sumwalt History Museum on picturesque Useppa. Keep in mind that Useppa Island is member-only, so you’ll need to book with Captiva Cruises, an outfitter that extends the Island’s exclusive access to cruise guests. Each island has a distinct personality ready for your clients to discover.

Foodies will savor perfect sunsets over the Gulf while they indulge in fresh seafood in Cape Coral. An exciting fusion of Asian and Caribbean flavors can be enjoyed at Jungle Bird Tiki. If unique recipes don’t win them over, the wide variety of beverage options might. The Wicked Dolphin Distillery takes visitors behind the scenes of their award-winning, small-batch rum and vodka, while Big Storm Brewing Co. offers more than 20 different beers made from locally sourced ingredients.

Families with little explorers in tow will love IMAG History & Science Center, where budding biologists can pet live stingrays and dig into the history of the Fort Myers area. There’s also fun for the whole family at PopStroke, with its two putting courses, outdoor games, playground, and full-service restaurant.

With resilience and optimism, our community is working hard to rebuild. Many businesses are reopening their doors each day. Read stories from loyal visitors and residents who are passionate about the area, then plan your clients’ visit at so they can make their own #MyFortMyers memories.
