How safe is the area around Colonial Blvd in Fort Myers?

Asked by Bethany Billings, Wapakoneta, OH Tue Jan 1, 2013

I see a lot of apartments listed in this area (Windsor West, Village Creek..) but I've heard that the area has gone downhill lately and isn't the most safe. Any ideas about the area from Fort Myers residents?

This was interesting. I just checked my area in Bell Tower Park. We had no police reports.

Visit the site above for crime statistics.....Have you considered South Lee by chance? If you have should. It is a fantastic area.

Colonial isn't the area you should be concerned with as much as about a mile north on Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd. west of the 75, and Palm Beach Blvd. east of the 75. And even then, like Danielle Sharp mentioned, safety depends on who's asking and what they perceive as safe.

I don't think of Colonial as being a bad area. It is a main thoroughfare. Some condo complexes ie village creek have had a lot of foreclosures but are coming out of those troubles. I would be happy to talk with you about specific areas. Give me a call. But like Wendy says, check the crime stats for yourself on the sheriff's website.

Depends on the area of Colonial. Windsor West is on Metro and Village Creek is on Winkler. I live at the Residence between Colonial and Winkler. I wouldn't live here if I didn't think it was safe. We have snowbirds from Ohio. Feel free to call me for more information

Only you can determine safety. Get here, take a look around & check crime information with Fort Myers PD & Lee County Sheriff.
