Begin a tour of Fort Myers Beach at nearby Lovers Key State Park
, where you can ride a bike, hike through the woods, see gentle manatees, go fishing or kayak through inner waterways. Bicycle and kayak rentals are available on site.
Have a picnic on the beach or drive up Estero Island and over to San Carlos Island, home of the Shrimp Fleet. Have lunch at the plastic-tablecloth/fish market Beach Seafood Market
restaurant. Next, explore marine life at the nearby Ostego Bay Marine Science Center.
Head back over the bridge to Estero Island and settle in at the Outrigger Beach Resort’s
Tiki Bar or atop the Beached Whale
for front-row seats of the sunset. Have dinner and take in a movie at the Beach Theater, then relax under the stars at Times Square
, a pedestrian-friendly shopping and dining area.
