You'll arrive in Fort Myers, Florida, at Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW), technically placing you in South Fort Myers. From the airport, it's only a short drive to Fort Myers Beach, if you're craving some instant relaxation. If you want to get a feel for the city however, the Southwest Florida Museum of History hosts regular walking tours, which you can take after you make your way to the downtown area in your rental car.
The Edison and Ford Winter Estates are endlessly fascinating and absolutely breathtaking sites to explore. Bring your camera when visiting the Sanibel Lighthouse & Fishing Pier, a 90-foot tall structure where you can observe native birds, and maybe even a dolphin or two, before trying some kite surfing if the wind is right. If untamed nature is your thing, drive your rental car to the J. N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge.
The flight from Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport (MSP) to Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) averages approximately three hours from gate to gate.
Looking for a day trip suggestion while in Fort Myers? Consider a visit to nearby Sanibel Island. In addition to family-friendly shops and top-rated seafood restaurants like IL Cielo, the island is also known for its charming galleries offering unique works of art.
