Baseball Spring Training

The Founders Home at the Koreshan State Historic Site
This one is perfect for all you history buffs.
Named for a religious group from Chicago who strongly valued community and believed in the abolishment of money, Koreshan State Historic Park displays upwards of ten original structures, several of which date back roughly 150 years.
Even if history isn’t your cup of tea, this site has a lot to offer you. It’s a local favorite for outdoors lovers—Koreshan State Historic Park includes fishing, boating, and camping as some of its most popular activities. There’s even a Farmer’s Market on Sundays!
Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve
If you’re not somewhat local, you probably haven’t had many opportunities to visit a wetland... especially one that sits on over 3,500 acres. One of the most well-preserved wetland habitats in the area (thanks to a petition written by high school students in 1976), the Cypress Slough Preserve is able to house a wide variety of animal and plant species.
This preserve includes a 1.2-mile boardwalk trail, amphitheater, and interpretive center.
Eat at a Waterfront Restaurant
Yet another thing you may have been missing in your previous year is restaurant dining. Luckily for you, Fort Myers has some incredible waterfront restaurants waiting!
There are tons of boat-friendly options if you decide to rent a boat while you're in town. If you love fresh seafood, there will be no shortage of options as well. One of our favorites for great scenery, food, and cocktails is The Salty Crab Bar and Grill.
Murder Mystery Dinner Train
Tons of places say they offer unique experiences, but Fort Myers delivers with this Murder Mystery Dinner Train. Family fun meets elegance meets murder—what could be better!
