One of the prettiest cities in Florida, Fort Myers is located in Lee County in the southwestern part of the state. It's a fast-growing city that currently covers nearly 50 square miles and is home to over 75,000 people in total. Founded in 1886 along the Caloosahatchee River, Fort Myers has a military past, initially being used as a military fort during the American Indian Wars of the early 1800s and eventually transformed and incorporated into a city later in the century.


Nowadays, Fort Myers is a massively popular touristic destination, like many other cities all around the Sunshine State, and has several notable attractions and landmarks for visitors to enjoy. The two main sites of interest in Fort Myers are Seminole Lodge and The Mangoes, which are the names given to the two winter estates of iconic American inventors and industrial pioneers, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. These estates can be toured and explored by visitors to Fort Myers, and the city is also home to some beautiful fishing spots, white sand beaches, and natural areas like the Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve.

All in all, Fort Myers is a wonderful area for people of all ages and backgrounds to spend some vacation time. There are plenty of lovely resorts and hotels in the area, but if you're looking to enjoy a camping or RV trip to Fort Myers, there are lots of great RV parks and campgrounds to choose from too.
