Fort Meyers is known as the 'City of Palms'. The avenues lined with Royal Palm Trees is something that I remember from our previous visit in the 60s.

Fort Myers was established in 1886 along the scenic shoreline of the Caloosahatchee River, and became the historical and governmental hub of Lee County. It has a young population - the average age of residents is 32 years old. The City of Fort Myers is also home to the historic winter residences of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford.
