My husband was born in this area and I have lived here for almost 10 years , It is what we call the Historic River District. . You are close to everything that goes on. At one end of the spectrum you are close to one of the oldest golf courses here in Fort Myers designed by one of the finest PGA Players. On the other hand if it is Arts that you are looking for there is plenty to do. We like to support the arts here in Fort Myers. The Alliance of the Arts at the corner of Colonial and Mcgregor has something to offer every weekend. If you go further in to town we have the Sidney Berne Davis Arts Center which always has something going on downtown. Our Art Fest is getting ready to Kick off Feb 4th and then we start our celebration of Thomas Edison who used to live here during the winter. Please check out our website and if you have any further questions about the area Contact Myself or Don and we will be happy to help you. ... more
