Fort Myers, Florida is a real treat for those seeking a calm beachside destination, away from the hustle and bustle of New York City. The Gulf of Mexico is found on the coast of the city, while the Caloosahatchee River flows within. The water access means fresh seafood dishes are abundant and so are the wildlife preservation sites.
The Manatee Park and Darling National Wildlife Refuge are where crowds go to see crocodiles, cuckoos and alligators frolic in their natural habitat. If you enjoy exploring history, the Edison and Ford Winter Estates, once home to Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, are wonderful landmarks to visit, too.
Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) is a half hour drive to downtown Fort Myers. The beach is then a half hour drive from downtown, making renting a car a good idea. With a car, you'll have the opportunity to explore the expansive Floridian side of the Gulf of Mexico at your own pace, as well as marvel the 14 miles of palm trees lining McGregor Boulevard.
If you catch a direct flight from LaGuardia Airport (LGA) to RSW, you can expect a travel time of three hours. Flights with transfers can have a total travel time of four to nine hours. Fort Myers has all the benefits of a beach city without the rowdiness of neighboring beach cities.
