Live like a Local in the River District

January 01, 2018

Looking to live like a local? Fort Myer’s Downtown River District is a busy and bustling coming together of all that our amazing city has to offer. Find charming brick-lined streets and small businesses along our Caloosahatchee river waterfront. During the day, walking tours are available to give insight into the history of Fort Myers. Plus, the district is filled with art galleries, unique boutiques, antique shops, and even visitor attractions like Imaginarium Hands-On Aquarium for a full family affair. More of a night owl? Come back in the evening to join in among the lively scene of restaurants, bar, live music venues, and theaters. Our beaches get people talking—and for good reason!—but the River District is a special place that gives visitors a chance to walk in the shoes of a local, spending a day in the heart of our beautiful, historic beach town.
