Fort Myers Beach Attractions
What attractions are there to see in the area?

There are a number of historical and interesting things to do in Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach, just a short bike ride or trolley away.

A state park located on the Northern tip of Fort Myers Beach, Bowditch Point Park is a short walk from our Fort Myers Beach resort. With walking trails through nature preserves, it is an ideal area to spot local wildlife such as gopher tortoises. The park also offers picnic tables and grills that are available October through May.

Located just 0.75 miles south of our Fort Myers resort, Times Square is the “hub” of Fort Myers Beach. Though the area is still rebuilding, visitors can enjoy dinner from our favorite local food trucks, or start begin the day by perusing the Farmers Market. You can't miss the Fort Myers Beach Tower's iconic mural added after the hurricane, welcoming visitors to the community.
