Fast Facts


Ft. Myers boasts more sunny days than any other city in Florida – quite a feat for a state with some of the warmest weather in the country.

The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum is the country’s only museum devoted exclusively to shells and mollusks.

Thanks to the area’s carbonized bamboo along the Caloosahatchee River, Thomas Edison found a long-lasting filament for his light bulb. Visitors can still view Edison’s original home, and botanical gardens turned museum in Ft. Myers.

Around 2000 royal palm trees line McGregor Blvd., thanks, in part, to Mr. Edison, who planted 200 or so palm trees here during the late 19th century.
