FORT MYERS CHARTER BUS RENTAL SERVICE
Fort Myers Isn't Miami, But It Oughta Be!Florida has a special place in the traveling mind, with its legendary weather, prominent geography and renowned historical sites -- in other words, there's more to it than Miami, the glittering cultural capital with a worldwide reputation. Just 160 miles northwest lies Fort Myers, whose activities make it a pearl of the state's West Coast. GOGO Charters is the charter bus service to call when the sun and fun urge hits. We serve more than 200 locations in America and know all of them -- including Fort Myers -- as well as we know the industry. Call 1-855-826-6770 24/7, and you're on your way!
Sights And Sounds of the CityThe Edison and Ford Winter Estates are as well-known for their botanical gardens as they are for the turn-of-the-century facilities that served as the off-season homes of inventor Thomas Alva Edison and automobile magnate Henry Ford. Some 400 species of 1,700 plants from six continents sprawl 20 acres and include immaculately kept orchids, bromeliads, fruit trees and the Banyan, which sits on an entire acre. Nine historic buildings feature Edison's botanic laboratory and the Edison Ford Museum, containing a collection of inventions and exhibits on historic Florida. Henry David Thoreau called the world a "canvas to our imagination" -- little did he know that Fort Myers would host the Imaginarium Science Center, whose canvas contains a world of mystery in the name of science. The Animal Lab, the Dino Dig, Fisheye Lagoon, the Sporty Science Arena and an interactive walk to the Gulf of Mexico will enthrall and educate kid and adult visitors just as it does residents. (Note: The Southwest Florida Museum of History, a monument to the area's past, is currently closed as it merges with the Imaginarium Science Center.) For more than 50 years, the Southwest Florida Symphony has presented classical, pop and opera programs for local cultural enrichment. No taste is left underserved amid upcoming Big Band and Gershwin presentations and a visit in April from Debby Boone. Nineteen years is a trifle compared with 25 centuries of live theater history -- but that's how long it took Florida Repertory Theatre to establish itself as what the Wall Street Journal calls "one of America's top repertory companies." Some 80,000 people enjoy comedies, dramas and special events every year at the River District's historic Arcade Theatre as both press and patrons have hailed the Rep as one of the region's most important cultural and educational institutions. And while were on the subject of the River District: Dining, shopping playing and investing here is a civic attraction in itself. More than 30 shops and events venues pepper the City Pier in what amounts to a neighborhood, offering local film festival movies, art walks, car cruises, butterfly gardening classes and consumer shows. This is a splendid place to spend a day -- or five.
The Great OutdoorsHard to believe a dilapidated rock quarry would ever undergo a clean-up, let alone morph into one of the region's premiere recreational areas -- but that's exactly what happened at Lakes Regional Park, with its 158-acre freshwater fishing lake and all the activities you can stand. Playgrounds, bike and boat rentals, cycling trails, a summer camp and rides on miniature trains pepper 279 acres and their complement of birds and alligators (this is Florida, after all). Dogs will have to sit this one out, as they're prohibited. For a list of Lee County's dog-friendly parks, see this site. Manatee Park is one place that a bus rental is probably best, as it's fairly out of the way. You'll not regret the trip, however, especially through February. Kayak and canoe rental is available, and special events take place at the Live Oak amphitheater in conjunction with the reason you came -- a view of the ungainly but friendly and curious manatees (which, by the way, are not captive here). Some factions in the press say that Florida's Everglades are disappearing, and have been for more than 100 years, amid a growing presence of pythons and saltwater -- but Everglades Adventure is alive and well, with its air boat tours of one of the world's premiere ecosystems. Armies of alligators may not plow through sawgrass like they did centuries ago, and legions of birds no longer darken the sky -- but the Everglades is a classic attraction no matter its future. A walking tour is likely the best way to take in the city and its history. One 12-mile self-guided trek features the city's oldest mansions, the most architecturally important federal buildings and ther grandeur of Centennial Park, along with sightseeing at the beautiful Caloosahatchee River.
Bars And Restaurants: Washing Down the DayPhiladelphia and Boston lay claim to the best lobster rolls in the world -- but apparently, nobody there has heard of the roll at Cape Cod Fish Co., modeled after the Northeast's best seafood restaurants. You can also get beer and wine here, and the staff serves the cult-favorite Love Boat ice cream. If you like a little 19th century with your meal, The Véranda is the place to eat in Fort Myers. Two elegant antebellum homes feature a private dining area for six and a reception area for as many as 60; Beef Carpaccio tenderloin, the Portobello mushroom sandwich and several fish specials will whet your appetite as you take in the grandeur of the area's history. Contrary to what you might think, The Mad Hatter isn't all that mad. In fact, it's become something of a destination for a romantic evening out -- with only 12 tables, it offers intimate views of the Gulf of Mexico and sunsets as tantalizing as the duck, lamb and homemade desserts. The first thing that strikes you about University Grill is the floor space. This place could be a basketball court if it wanted -- thankfully, it's sticking to its hearty American menu (which means plenty of steak and seafood) alongside its full bar.
