In Fort Myers, the hustle and bustle you'll find in cities like Miami is replaced by family-friendly beaches and historic homes – like the Edison & Ford Winter Estates. Both historic figures are credited with transforming Fort Myers into the lush hideaway it is today."

This week we travelled to Ft Myers with Eddie & Linda to explore the City of Palms and Historical Estates. A beautiful area. We picnicked at Snell Park, captured mural art in town and at the Yacht Basin and walked the grounds of the Edison Home. Great weather and a good time. The downtown area called the Historic River District was active with shops (particularly Christmas shopping, sidewalk dining and people). We did (had to) check out the Edison and Ford Winter Estates - magnificent (from the road).
The recommended mural collection we were told was over 40 murals around the River Basin Yacht Club. Many murals were damaged from the last storm and they were a little disappointing. See the 'Collections' tab in the navigation bar for photos of murals we did capture or click here.
