Florida Villas Direct offers Fort Myers
Fort Myers, the focal point for tourists taking a Gulf Coast holiday in Southwest Florida, is located about 120 miles south of Tampa the home of the Boston Red Sox training camp. Fort Myers is known as the "City of Palms" for its palm-lined streets, and offers excellent shopping, nightlife, many restaurants and watering holes. Fort Myers has its share of family-welcoming restaurant chains, in addition to many independent restaurants offering a wide choice of international cuisine and fresh seafood. There are excellent beaches, and an abundance of water sports are available including fishing, sailing, boating, parasailing, windsurfing, and skiing. Not to be missed is watching the wildlife – seeing ospreys and pelicans diving for fish, and the dolphins swimming in the surf at nearby Sanibel Island. In the winter months hundreds of manatees arrive in the Fort Myers area and can be seen congregating in the Orange River providing visitors with an opportunity to view these unique creatures in their natural environment. For the golfing enthusiast, the Fort Myers is home to over 50 of the renowned 130 public and private golf courses in South West Florida. The Sunshine State enjoys great weather which, combined with the scenic and challenging nature of these courses, makes the area an excellent location for the vacationing golfer. Fort Myers meets all the requirements for a Florida holiday and there is a choice between Florida villas with private swimming pool - either are ideal for family Florida holidays available through Florida Villas Direct, or condos with communal facilities and hotels for couples.
