Fort Myers: Originally a fort built by the military as a base of operations in the Seminole Wars, the city of Ft. Myers occupies a stretch of prime real estate along the south bank of the Caloosahatchee River in Southwest Florida. Over the course of its existence, the city's fortunes have hit highs as well as lows. They rose and fell during the pioneer days, before and after each war and following the great depression.
Today Fort Myers has found a balance as the gateway to the Gulf of Mexico replete with sun-washed beaches, tropical gardens and swaying palm trees. Known as the "City of Palms," Ft. Myers is a great location for families, retirees, professionals, entrepreneurs, the young and the young at heart. It offers endless access to water sports, museums, golf, historic tours and theater without losing its historical connection to the past.

Myers has retained much of its charm, while its downtown is filled with commerce. Nestled near the boulevard is McGregor Reserve, a custom luxury-home community where cherished lifestyles of the past meet the vision of the future. Other historic developments such as Edgewood, Woodward Grove, Valencia Terrace, Riverside Park and Alabama Groves are communities with modern appeal.
