Southwest Florida is the gateway to the Everglades National Park. Stay in one or make your way through all areas to have unforgettable Florida adventures. Start in Fort Myers, known as the City of Palms. Former winter home of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, their estates will showcase their interests and friendship. Just 44 miles south, the sophisticated shopping and dining in Naples can transition easily with a reasonably short drive to a beach town vibe on Marco Island. Beaches and watersports are the main draws here, but there is also plenty of shopping and golf to be found. Manatees, dolphins, birds and all kinds of flora and fauna are within handy distance of the area.

More About Fort Myers, Naples & Marco Island

Overview

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 the urban setting, while nearby Marco Island has the 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.

General Safety Tips: By taking a few simple security precautions before and during your vacation, you can help ensure that you, your traveling companions, and your valuables are as safe and secure as possible.
  • To make it easier to replace your passport if it’s lost or stolen, in addition to your passport, take a photocopy of your passport information page (keeping it separate from your actual passport).
  • Carry only a limited amount of cash, just enough for gratuities and incidental purchases. Major credit cards are widely accepted and can be replaced if lost or stolen.
  • Always lock your hotel room door (including patio and balcony door on any level of the building) and use the peephole before opening the door.
  • Store your valuables (such as cash, credit cards and airline tickets) in the hotel’s in-room safe or front desk safety deposit box.
  • If you must carry valuables on your person, do so in a pouch or money belt concealed under your clothing. Purses and backpacks can be easy targets for thieves.
