Contact a local Realtor and discuss your needs and price range and they can provide you with neighborhoods that match your criteria.

If you're looking for the old Florida setting with mature landscaping, an assortment of unique Mediterranean, Craftsman, Prairie, and mid-century homes, set your sights on the historical river district, which is mainly from the Edison-Ford winter homes going south about a mile and between McGregor Blvd and the Caloosahatchee River. This area is in close proximity to excellent schools, the downtown shops, restaurants, and County offices. It is well maintained, safe, and perfect for evening strolls or biking. The desirability of this area is highlighted by the very few homes that are offered for sale at any given time. If you're looking more for gated communities, there are an assortment of these with fine amenities, but most are located further inland and homes are architecturally bland compared to the historical river district. Association fees are another drawback. If you're hoping to be close to the beaches, the availability of attractive homes is limited and the traffic headaches are plentiful, whether you're considering Fort Myers Beach or Sanibel/Captiva islands. There's a hefty toll to get out to the islands and, to live there is cost- prohibitive for most.

You have such a wide choice of neighbor hoods in Fort Myers, you may need to speak to a local Realtor to narrow down your search requirements.
You will find that in Fort Myers, many communities have single family homes and condos, many with club house and some on golf courses. Some close to the beach, some close the highways. If you have school age children, then this is a big consideration as well, as you want to be in a good school area.
If you just want a talk, you can call or e mail me.

Have your considered searches based on school rankings? Published media reports? Crime stat's? Taxes base for area? Few suggestions on search.

It will take inconsideration for loan amount then your search could begin.

Wow......there are so many nice locations in the Ft. Myers area and the "best and nicest" is so subjective, that our best advice is to plan a visit to the area for the purpose of only looking for possible location ....not specific homes. This way you will be relying on your own value judgement and not the opinion of others.

Good luck

Flbound: It is going to depend on how far you want to be to the beach. Like in most of Southwest Florida the most attractive areas maybe neighborhoods along the river along McGregor and the Historical District, the bay along the Estero Bay of Fort Myers Beach, if you are a golfer at Fiddlestick or Gateway for example, if you are a boating affectionado then Palm Isles in Fort Myers Beach would be one, along with Iona, and the canals of a dozen of streets in Fort Myers Beach, if you like high towers then we have great deals and incredible views along the renovated River District. Above all areas along the beach would be considered number one for some but its really going to depend about what your price range is and what your preferences are. If you prefer communities then Palmetto and Gulf Harbor and would be part of the conversation .Both on the river and along McGregor. They are all excellent.
Techically Real Estate Agents cannot tell you which area is better then another. That is why I cannot be more specific then that and when you get other answers they will be general and vague. However, if I know your price range, I will be able to get you the best there is for your buck. Your price range will dictate in great part what areas of Fort Myers you will be able to enjoy and again how close you are to a river, a canal, a golf course view or not with a lake view, a beach view, or a gorgeous home in the horse area of north Fort Myers.
Either way I suggest you use a local expert as you are FLbound and good luck with your search,

Old McGregor is always poplar. Paseo has a great town center, Ft Myers Villas is older, but is centrally located- So much depends on your price range, desired amenities, etc. Give me a call and I would be happy to help
