Fort Myers, FL US - Sights: Known For Science And Scenes

In contrast to other cities, Fort Myers is not just a city of parks and museums, but also of inventions. It is a city of technology. From a ‘Cow town’ to ‘City Of Palms’, Fort Myers has evolved a lot in all spheres of development. The city was the winter home of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. Even today, tourists can scan the Edison-Ford winter estate. In the month of February, a two week extravaganza is put on. It is called ‘Festival of light’, to show a mark of respect to the man, who gave us the light.

From nightclubs to restaurants and cruises, shops to shell factory, Fort Myers is a ‘name-it-and-have-it’ city. The city and its adjoining reef offer lots of recreational activities. Even baseball games are also held in spring.
