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.

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.

    0 4/5 Mark P - See all my reviews This review is from: Discover the beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel (Kindle Edition) I picked this up at the Fort Myers Airport and during my vacation it became my go-to resource while I was on the road. It was well written and funny. It's rare that travel guides are both entertaining and informative. It could be organized by location rather than by type of activity, but still helpful. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 10, 2012

    NOT THE CORRECT SIZE FOR MOST CARBS...

    0 4/5 Victor - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Parts Unlimited Blue Polyurethane Fuel Line - 1/16in i.d. x 25ft A37329 The line itself seems as if it's good quality, although I'm not too sure how it would hold up over time, the wall thickness of the line is pretty thin... I found out the hard way that the diameter size is too small for most carbs on chainsaws, weed eaters, and any 2 stroke carbs. The previous reviews were very misleading, as all of them say they fit carbs on weed eaters and chainsaws, I'm not sure who wrote them... Someone even said they fit their Walbro carbs good, this is not true! Overall the line seems pretty good, just not good for what I need it for, the diameter is way too small. My mistake! Do the research and get the right size line. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 12, 2014

    quality tubing

    0 5/5 ratrider - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Parts Unlimited Blue Polyurethane Fuel Line - 1/16in i.d. x 25ft A37329 purchased this fuel line to replace fuel line on weedwacker (and several chain saws)that had disintegrated due to the nature of the new alcohol additives in gasoline. It is good quality, easy to work with, accurate spec on inside and outside diameter. A good quality product, shipped very quickly and very reasonably priced. Professional service and excellent product and great price! Perfect!I will be back to purchase more fuel line for replacement due on some other larger pieces of equipment. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 24, 2011
