Fort Myers tour with educational narratives of local history

Fort Myers’ historic downtown area was once the site of a Seminole and then a Civil War fort. From fort to dusty cattle town to the building boom of the Roaring Twenties, from depression to post-WWII prosperity to urban decay, and ultimately to its modern incarnation as one of the most beautiful historic districts in Florida, Fort Myers is a town rich in history, architecture, art, and amenities. On this 90-minute walking tour, you learn your way around not only this charming town but also around the intrigues and rivalries of the men who built it.


Our fans help keep you cool in the Florida sunshine, but you may want to bring along a bottle of water, also. In hot weather, hats and sunscreen help keep you comfortable along this easy stroll with plenty of shady benches along the way.
