Things to Do in Fort Myers
A trip to Fort Myers has no shortage of attractions. Start at Manatee Park, which is a refuge for Florida Manatees that are best observed in the colder months. While there are observation decks to see them, some visitors enjoy kayaking up close to them. Keep up the animal fun at J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, located at Sanibel Island. Tip: The most wildlife can be seen between November and April. Families have a blast at the Butterfly Estate, a conservatory that's home to all Butterfly species native to Florida.
Baseball fans can check out their favorite players because the city is where both the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox have their spring training games. Catch the Sox at JetBlue Park and Fenway South and the Twins at Hammond Stadium. Top off the vacation with a visit to the Edison and Ford winter estates, which features a museum and a 17-acre botanical garden.
