Party in the streets. It was St. Patrick's Day in the streets of Ft Meyers. The restaurants were full, but they set-up tables and grills in the streets. Lots of people in Hats, and other green attire.

On the west side of town, Monroe and First Street, is a parking ramp often able to find parking there. Other nearby attractions are the Edison Ford Estates and the Butterfly House or stroll the Yacht basin... 更多
Was there early in the day had a chance to walk throughout the downtown area . Lots of restaurants quaint little shops appears to be an artist cooperative also where various artist display and sell their wares. Appears o be lots of parking off the main drag.

The River District in downtown Fort Myers should be on your list for "places to eat"! Lots of choices, festivals and entertainment.
