Most of Fort Myers Beach is laid back, with quiet beaches, small cottages, motels, and come condos. However, the intersection of San Carlos Boulevard and Estero Boulevard is so busy, with its nightlife, shopping, and entertainment, that it has come to be known as Times Square. This is the heart of the town and the busiest area for tourists. Fort Myers Beach also welcomes street performers to this area to perform shows and entertainment for the tourists.
Lovers Key State Park
Lovers Key State Park is another excellent place to observe nature. It’s a barrier island, just south of Fort Myers Beach and has nature trails and two miles of beautiful beach. There is a visitor centre and if you don’t want to walk from there to the beach, you can catch a little tram.
It’s an area of great natural beauty and it’s easy to spend a whole day there. You can buy drinks and snacks at one place on the beach but if you prefer solitude, it’s very easy to find.
You can obvserve many birds and animals in the Park and every time you go, you are likely to see something different
