If you are a baseball fan, then you will want to make sure that your car rental in Florida stops by the Boston Red Sox’s spring training facility, which is also close to the City of Palms Park. A day trip with the car rental from Florida may include Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva Islands, or the Everglades.
Fort Myers has many attractions that will be of interest to the entire family. Here are just a few examples of some of the fun things to do and places to go in your car rental from Florida:
Visit the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel
Throughout the year, several colorful events and festivals take place that celebrate the history and culture of the Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel.
Thomas Edison’s legacy can be found all over the town of Fort Myers and beyond on the Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel. There are two top winter events that celebrate the famed inventor’s life: Holiday House, at the inventor’s home and the Edison Festival of Lights. These are annual events that you can plan your car rental in Florida around accordingly.
“Holiday House” is a Fort Myers tradition, and this year it’s celebrating the reopening of Seminole Lodge (Edison’s home) on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River after a $9 million restoration. The clock has been turned back to 1929 with an old tropical Florida style and more than a million twinkling lights and period decorations. Live music, dance groups and refreshments are featured nightly. This would be a perfect evening for the entire family.
Edison Festival of Light keeps the “inventor of the lightbulb” theme alive with a three-week celebration from the end of January to early February. Fashioned around Edison’s life and his multitude of contributions to the technological advancement of society, the events include parades for adults and kids, block parties, a 5K run, live entertainment and an inventors and science fair for schoolchildren called the Edison Day of Discovery. Crafts on the River, a showcase for area arts and crafts, is at Centennial Park in downtown Fort Myers.
The Shell Factory and Nature Park
Drive a short distance with your car rental in Florida to North Fort Myers and visit the Shell Factory and Nature Park.
Not only will you see a collection of common and rare shells, sponges, coral, fossils and sea life specimens that are the largest in the world, but we also sell sea and nautical-inspired lamps and night lights, shell and gold jewelry (or you can pick your own pearl & have it mounted in one of many styles of bands), inlaid shell toilet seats, hand-painted tables, wall hangings and a wide variety of mirrors, decorations for every holiday imaginable, palm tree wine glasses, books and maps, cards and stationery, nautical-motif gifts and accent pieces, furnace-blown glass, candles, magnets and keychains, and citrus and palm trees that can be grown indoors. You can spend an entire day shopping and not even see the other interesting things that the Shell Factory and Nature Park have to offer such as: the newly renovated Nature Park, the Petting Zoo, the Environmental Education Center, and the Botanical Trail. Not to mention dining at Southwest Florida's largest seafood restaurant, n Fishbones.
So whatever it is that you or your family enjoys, you will be sure to find it in Fort Myers.
