A slummy, boring city in southwest Florida full of decomposing geriatrics and foreclosed homes. The social climate can be summed up as "spiteful grapevine." Everyone has a grudge against everyone else in Fort Myers. For this reason and many others, it is called Fort Misery by its locals.

Fort Myers, and Lee County at large, is so unbelievably boring that one of their main attractions is a patch of land overlooking brackish water with a fountain that looks like watersports porn from a certain angle. Also known as Centennial Park.

Don't take my word for it; look up Lee County sucks in Google.

A city in southern Florida. Population: 62,298 officially but really more like 200,000 since most people live outside city limits. It is composed almost entirely of suburbs and strip malls, with a few ghettos thrown in for good measure. The population consists mostly of close-minded fake suburban people and their wigger children. The only other common type of person in Fort Myers is 80+ and drives only Lincoln Town Cars (or Jaguars, if they have a bit of money). As noted by some of the other entries, nothing ever really happens in Fort Myers. The center of the city is about 10 miles east of the Gulf of Mexico and the local government markets it to tourists as "paradise" even though it has more litter than most cities of its size. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

The most happenin place EVER! No, for real though. Ft. Myers is awesome. There's a great diversity in people, of age, race and religion.
We get lucky when hurricanes come by, because regardless of what the news says, it's not that bad. If you're not from Florida, born and raised, then you'll usually freak out. We "floridians" don't have issues with them. HURRICANE PARTY!!!

Also, there's Florida Gulf Coast University, where most will go to after high school. We have three malls. Plenty of beach space when the snow birds are not here. The sun is always shining, and if not, just wait ten minutes, it will be back. Fort myers is located on the Gulf Coast, water is WARM. There's not much surf, but hey, there's a lot of great things. Tons of wonderful restaurants, like Buffulo Chips, Bahama Breeze, and of course your famous ones like Outback and Olive Garden.

Everyone that travels down there, three hours south of Tampa, loves it. Tons of compliments from people who have passed through. US 41 is always packing during season. If you don't know what season is, sorry. It's the most imporant time of year for working residents. That's where the term "snow bird" comes in hand. People are generally nice. Unless you meet them on the road... Police don't care that much for speeders.
Overall, you'll greatly enjoy Fort Myers. It has great schools like Estero High and Fort Myers High. Even if Estero's football team made history recently on their score. Other than that... If you don't want to live here, don't stop by, you'll get addicted.
Person 1 : Yo, where you been at?

Person 2 : Dude, Fort Myers! It's awesome. I'm never going back home!!!!

A town much like any other in south Florida that mainly consists of golf loving, leather skin having elders as well as the families that follow in their foot steps. It's a great mixture of gentrification/tasteless architecture. Lack of SPF is a common trend here as well as having the hope of always wanting to leave. Fort Myers is for that and many other reasons, called Fort Misery. And rightfully so. We have a surprisingly large amount of LGBT+ people here which is beautiful but since the town has a habit of tearing down local gay bars we typically have a choice of Rascal's (Bad drag and a community that would rather tear each other down than build each other up) or the other one in cape coral which escapes my mind currently, and well always since the only thing I remember from that place which was the lack of substance and the fact that the bar had a reward on they won that mentioned "alternative lifestyle". Overall the weather is great and if you find the right area you can always find some amazing local nature, historical sites, and cruising spots.
