About this book
Located on the wide and beautiful Caloosahatchee River, just fifteen miles from the Gulf of Mexico, Fort Myers, the fabled "City of Palms," is known throughout the world for its tropical weather and many local attractions. Exotic flowers and shrubbery dot the city landscape, which today includes a revitalized downtown, inviting neighborhoods, endless shopping, and a breathtaking waterfront. Like many Florida communities, the origin of Fort Myers can be traced to the Seminole Indian wars of the 1800s. The fort itself-named for Lt. Col. Abraham Myers-was established in the frontier region to quell uprisings and help in the Indian Removal campaigns. It was later used by Union forces during the Civil War, was abandoned, and then reoccupied by courageous settlers who relied on the cattle business, and citrus and vegetable farming to sustain their families and their new town. As the years passed, Fort Myers grew and began to attract winter visitors, including such famous Americans as Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, both of whom had homes in the area, as well as wealthy sportsmen eager to try their luck at tarpon fishing in nearby Gulf waters. When the railroad finally reached Fort Myers, tourists, transplants, retirees, and many more would discover the irresistible charms of one of Florida's newest gems.

Fort Myers lies on the beautiful, wide Caloosahatchee River.

Publisher: Arcadia Publishing

About this book
Fort Myers lies on the beautiful, wide Caloosahatchee River. Tropical flowers and palm trees dot the landscape, which today boasts a revitalized downtown, historic neighborhoods, shopping, and a breathtaking waterfront. The fort itself, named for Lt. Col. Abraham Myers, was established to quell uprisings and help the Indian Removal campaigns. It was later used by Union forces in the Civil War, abandoned, and then reoccupied by courageous settlers who relied on the cattle business and farming to sustain families and the community. In the late 1800s, Fort Myers began to attract famous winter residents, such as "electrician" Thomas Edison, as well as wealthy sportsmen trying their luck at tarpon fishing. When the "iron horse" finally arrived in 1904, Fort Myers experienced an economic transformation, and her days as a frontier cow town were numbered.

    Almost laughable

    0 1/5 Jon S. Turner "Jon Turner" (Ozark, MO USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: FORT MYERS & SANIBEL - The Delaplaine 2015 Long Weekend Guide (Long Weekend Guides ) (Paperback) Almost laughable, when this arrived my wife commented that it won't be a very long weekend! This is more of a pamphlet than a guide. Basically, it looks like they've just copied things of the internet like phone numbers and types of menus and cut and pasted it into this pamphlet. Save the money and just contact the Fort Myers/Sanibel travel bureau and they'll send you the same information for free. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 15, 2015

    My favorite cookbook!

    0 5/5 Kelly Ann Connole - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gulfshore Delights (Plastic Comb) I was given this cookbook many years ago. I love to cook and this is by far my favorite cookbook ever. Every recipe I've tried - and I've tried a lot - is good. The applesauce pancakes have become a family favorite over the years, first with my boys, and now with my grandchildren. I've purchased this book for many friends and family.
