This was my first time in fort myers...
since its name isn't that famous in europe, i didn't know what to expect.
when we arrived we were passing the bridge that leads to the beach, and passed the center of fort myers...
during daytime it looked pretty crowded, and there were LONG traffic jams, especially on weekend.

we overnighted at the holiday inn, which was located 4 miles south from the pier of fort myers.
this area was SOOOOOOOOO calm. we actually loved it though, because after our busy trips through orlando, and miami, we really felt like relaxing for a few hours. the people in that area looked older. there weren't any teenagers. i'd guess most were aged 40-60 years. but we didn't care. the area looked safe. the beach was almost empty. no noise, no annoying people.

i guess it would be the perfect spot for a calm and peaceful vacation. however after 6pm people started leaving the beach, getting ready for the evening partys at the hotel :). they had a live band, and people really caught the party mood:)

the think i really liked in fort myers beach... there weren't almost any tourists. only locals, or americans. there weren't a lot of attractions or nice shops. good thing! we spent less money during our 2 days in fort myers.
(there was a hooter's close to the beach) ;).

i dunno why i was that impressed by fort myers... because it has less to offer than miami beach for sure. but the fact that everything looked less fake than in miami...people were nicer, the whole athmosphere was beautiful. if i could chose between miami beach or fort myers. i would surely point towards FM beach :). however on a vacation with friends, looking for partying, i'd chose miami. :)
