Grab a Fort Myers vacation home and watch the Sunshine State open up with adventure. With miles of Gulf of Mexico coastline that encompasses the popular beaches on Sanibel Island, this sun-soaked city is a beachgoer's paradise. It’s also a popular destination for anyone seeking a Florida vacation home, and each year families, couples, retirees, and seasonal residents seek abundant sunshine and laid-back living in Southwest Florida.
Fort Myers sits on the Caloosahatchee River, where it diverges into the Pine Island Sound and San Carlos Bay, creating a variety of shorelines, communities, and destinations perfect for any angler, family, beach-lover, or water-filled vacation. Just a little south you’ll find Bonita Springs, a vacation community full of beautiful houses, sparkling pools, and a home base for MLB spring training. Book a stay for you and your crew with amenities like pools, fitness centers, direct beach access, and dog-friendly vacation homes.
Fort Myers is a mid-size city on the Caloosahatchee River that boasts year-round tropical weather and beautiful white sand beaches nearby. Come during any season to experience its tranquil beaches and warm Gulf waters.
If you've come seeking fun in the sand and surf, you'll find just that on the beaches of Sanibel Island, a 24-mile drive southwest. Soft white sand, numerous colorful shells brought in by the tides, and abundant sea life will greet you on beaches like Lighthouse Beach, Tarpon Bay Beach, Bowman’s Beach, and others.
Sanibel Island is known for some of the best shelling in the world, thanks to the multitude of shells that wash up on its shores daily. Kids will love collecting these shells and might even end up on the front page of the local newspaper if they find the prized Junonia, which is a rare polka-dot shell known to wash up on the island’s beaches.
With warm weather year-round, Fort Myers sees travelers throughout the year, with peak crowds during the summer months. Skip the lines and plan your trip around March–May for fewer crowds and sunny weather. Fort Myers is also a popular destination for snowbirds that take up residency during the winter. While making your travel plans, keep hurricane season in mind, which runs from June to November.
Fort Myers also boasts many other activities to get up close to the area's aquatic wildlife, including bird-watching on the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail, spotting alligators in the water, and taking a leisurely stroll along a boardwalk at Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve, which is just nine miles south of town.
Take a drive about 10 miles northeast to Lee County Manatee Park, where you'll have a chance to kayak and spot resident manatees that call this park home in the cooler winter months. There's a reason to come any time of year, though, between the extensive butterfly garden, beautiful landscape, picnic and playground area, and fishing off the pier.
Whether it's relaxation or action you’re seeking in your Southwest Florida getaway, rest assured our Fort Myers vacation rentals will give you access to it all.
