Fort Myers is home to all sorts of fun activities from beachside lounging to deep dives into the wonders of Florida’s natural ecosystems! Here are a few of our favorite things to do in Fort Myers:
Go to The Beach
One of the top outdoor things to do in Fort Myers is to enjoy a day soaking up the sun on the beach! You can enjoy the seclusion of Cayo Costa Island, the endless beach options along the three-mile causeway or the hustle and bustle around the Fort Myers Pier!
There is a beach for everyone in the Fort Myers area. Let us know which one is your favorite!
Go for A Hike
If you are ready for a more active vacation, take a trip to Babcock Ranch Eco-Tours for a fun-filled hike through the palmetto prairie! The walking tour is self-guided and just a little over a mile long. Here you can see some of the rarer birds that call Florida home.
Make sure you come ready with a sense of adventure and a good pair of rain boots; the trail can get a little wet during rainy days.
Charter a boat and explore the Fort Myers area by sea! Although sailing is one of the more expensive things to do in Fort Myers, it’s a great way to get a new perspective on the area and experience the best sunset views!
If you aren’t sure about chartering a boat but would still like to see the area from the sea, consider a guided eco-kayak tour or an evening cruise.
Take A Tour on A Swamp Buggy!
Looking to get close and personal with nature? Hop on a Babcock Ranch Swamp Buggy Eco-Tour and ride through the Babcock Ranch Preserve as your tour guide points out all sorts of beautiful native and non-native animals. They will also teach you about the area’s history and will stop at the best places so you can take as many pictures as you like. This 90-minute tour will give you the chance to experience nature in Florida as you’ve never seen it before!
