||You will find yourself surrounded by lush foliage, bouquets of flowers by Mother Nature and water everywhere, including the Gulf of Mexico and the Caloosahatchee River. Water sports, golfing, gourmet dining, history, art museums, and theater are just a small part of what Fort Myers has to offer:
Inventor Thomas Alva Edison spent winters at his home and laboratory on McGregor Boulevard. Both are now public museums, as is the grand bungalow next door, home of Edisonís friend automobile magnate Henry Ford. Stately royal palms, some 60 feet tall, stand guard along McGregor Boulevard. Today, Fort Myers is known as the "City of Palms".
