Originally chosen for it’s good visibility and easy access to the waterways, Fort Myers was one of the first army forts built along the Caloosahatchee River. Even though Fort Myers became an incorporated town in 1885 it was nearly 40 years before the city’s population started to steadily rise with the addition of the Tamiami Trail.
Today Fort Myers is being recognized for it’s fast rise to being a large city. Fort Myers is home to year round warm weather, beautiful beaches and many new shopping centers. The population is being diversified with young college students attending FGCU, young families relocating for Fortune 500 occupations, and retirees looking for a winter escape.
