Visit the Joining Club Carlson Landing Page for the quickest way to plan your next great escape.
Fun Things To Do In Fort Myers
- Downtown: The Riverwalk District is littered with specialty shops and restaurants, perfect for a lazy afternoon of snacking and imbibing. The kids can hit the playground at Centennial Park and the docks at Harborside are great for checking out ideas for your next boat.
- The Beach: Let’s be clear, that’s why you’re in South Florida in the first place. From Boca Grande to Naples, these rank as some of the finest beaches in the world. Sanibel and Captiva Islands are local treasures you won’t want to miss. For the tourist treat, head straight to Fort Myers Beach. With plenty of soft sand to enjoy, you can take occasional pit stops at local watering holes such as Mermaids and Shamrocks.
- Old Soul Brewery: Be sure to swing by a local favorite if you’re in the market for a delicious home brew. With a big menu of porters, stouts, and ales, their homemade recipes will keep you coming back for more. Let Sweet Nick and Victoria hear all of your problems as you drift back to island time. Check their schedule for the weekly live music scene. Wednesday nights features JNail and the Dead Cat Family Jam so bring a guitar or that sing-song voice and join in the fun.
Now that you’ve decided Fort Myers is the best vacation option available, it’s time to talk transportation and hotels. Once you’ve paid for either, you’re ready to get excited and start packing.
