About Fort Myers FL

The city of Fort Myers, Florida, is located near the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River on the western side of Florida. Travelers along the long majestic bridges connecting the two sides of the river see the distinctive shapes of the triple condominium buildings rising up over the water as they enter the city.

The settlement at Fort Myers began after the area had been used as a key strategic base for the United States Army during the Seminole wars. The U.S. Army used the fort as a key lookout along the river. More than twenty years later the community was founded by Captain Manuel A. Gonzalez who had become fond of the area during his service in the Seminole and Civil Wars. Gonzalez sailed with his family from the keys to the area in 1866 and settled there. Twenty years later the population had grown to several hundred people and the town was incorporated.

Fort Myers has been voted one of the best places to work and live. The city is a medium sized city with small town charm. The downtown area is quaint and delightful with many appealing shops, restaurants, and art galleries lining its streets. Downtown Fort Myers is just minutes away from access to a wide variety of water activities from kayaking to fishing. Community life in Fort Myers is particularly appealing with numerous festivals, parks, and museums to attract families. Residents there rate the city high in areas such as job market and quality of life.

With its proximity to the river, its delightful shopping areas, and its thriving job market, Fort Myers is a great place for families to live, work, and go to school.
