More About Fort Myers, Naples & Marco Island


All three areas are known for beaches, history, fishing and shopping. Fort Myers has a long history with the Army and Civil War activity. The late 19th century saw an influx of northerners and development. Continuing south, Naples is more of an urban setting, while nearby Marco Island has an island atmosphere. But being so close, one can go from each to the other for a completely different experience. All manner of watersports and beaches may be enjoyed in all three areas. Adventures centered around the ocean and the Everglades remain the top draw.
