North Fort Myers is naturally beautiful and ripe for exploring. Prairie Pines Preserve offers plentiful hiking, bird-watching, geocaching, fishing and horseback riding. You can even bring your pups to the preserve, provided they’re on leashes. Pack a picnic lunch and bring it to North Shore Park along the Caloosahatchee River, where you’ll find a fishing pier, a kayak launch and landing, and the perfect place to experience the unspoiled natural setting that Southwest Florida is known for.
You’re never too far from the water whenever you’re in Southwest Florida, and North Fort Myers knows how to make a splash. Wakeboarders should check out Revolution Cable Park, where a giant crane pulls you around a course as you show off your best aquatic acrobatics.
