What is this Big Deal about the River Walk District in Southwest Florida, Lee County? Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres, the Beaches+

Presently this is “What’s Happening” in the River District in downtown Fort Myers; near the summer retreat homes of the Great Thomas Edison and his neighbor, Henry Ford. These guys were pals. As this area grows more activities and vendors, theaters, shops, eatery will be moving into the area as well. Boat docks will be available that you can boat in from your back yard if you are fortunate to have River/Gulf access, and dock it there. There are many properties in North Fort Myers and Alva, less known but still worth a look, that make this worth the trip and easily reachable. No need to get to the Gulf, the fishing and relaxation is right on the Caloosahatchee River. Alva is beautiful Country like  area and many have land and stable for horses. If boating does not work for you, you are within 30 minutes to the River District; North Fort Myers, just over one of two bridges, or even 4, depending on the way you want to travel, that takes you right to the River District.  On a good day, you may be blessed with a double rainbow as you cross from a quick downpour. Cape Coral, there are also multiple ways of getting their as well. But then again, Cape Corals offer their own activities, and some people in Fort Myers, as well as throughout Lee County, may go there to enjoy their’s as well.
