Fort Myers is a gateway to a number of white sand beach islands and a thriving city with historical and natural attractions. The city is located directly on the wide Caloosahatchee River and offers numerous parks that preserve the fragile habitat while providing access to river boating and trails for biking and hiking. Manatee Park is home to a herd of endangered Florida manatees that come to winter in its warm waters every year. The city is most notable for its two historically famous residents, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. The light bulb inventor and automobile founder lived side by side and now visitors enjoy tours of both homes and their private gardens. The Professional Theater, a sophisticated performing arts hall, and two sports parks, which host the spring training for Major League Baseball teams, provide entertainment in the Fort Myers area.
Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium is a 105 acre site with a planetarium, nature trails, a museum, aviary, gift shop, and more.
