The Fort Myers/Naples Area/Edison’s Winter Home

Edison’s Winter Home
The bustle of commercially oriented Fort Myers gives way to the relaxed atmosphere of the Gulf communities elsewhere in growing Lee Country. Beach lovers head for the resort islands of Estero (popular with young singles); captive and Sanibel; and the Lover’s Key State Recreation Area – all of which are know for superb shelling and fishing. Most of the beautiful residences here are hidden by Australian pines, but the beaches and tranquil Gulf waters are readily accessible.

Fort Myers is a small inland city; although it is a half hour from the nearest beach, its downtown business district overlooks the broad, flat Caloosahatchee River. One of the most scenic stretches of highway in Southeastern Florida, McGregor Boulevard is framed by hundred of towering palms. Fort Myers’s premier attraction, Thomas A. Edison’s Winter Home on a 14 acre estate, house Edison’s Lab and a museum devoted to his inventions.
