At least once a year, sometimes more we head to Fort Myers Beach! Our favorite place to vacation. Here are some of the places we like to go to the most!
On the beach:Salty Crab - good place to go for a quick lunch on the beach. Sometimes they'll have someone singing/playing guitar sweating their booty off while everyone else is enjoying some adult beverages and a nice lunch overlooking the ocean.
Sunset Beach & Tropical Grill - this place is pretty pricey, but the atmosphere is so fun. It's nice to sit outside with a great view of the water, the bar area is super cute at night.
Junkanoo - is a fun inside/outside type place. They have good fruity/frozen drinks, and delicious fat greasy pizza! The kids love this place because you can play the jukebox, and theirs even a game where you can try and catch a lobster and if you catch it you get to eat it! We caught one once, and gave it away to another family.
On the way home from the beach:
Love Boat - if you have visited Fort Myers and never gone here, you are missing out. It's the best ice cream and just this year they expanded into a huge ginormous building! The photo above is the original location that was so cute, always a line out the door, and super crowded.
Downtown Fort Myers:
Fords Garage - they have good burgers, always a wait to get in, nice outdoor seating on the main strip of downtown.
Capones - if you like coal fired pizza, this place is awesome! The inside is decorated with Capone and all the mafia things.
The Lodge - known for BBQ, but the inside of this place looks like a log cabin. So cool.
SkyBar - this bar is on the rooftop of the Firestone restaurant which has really good steak. They have a DJ and dancing, and its fun to watch the locals and the tourists. Fun place we always go to if we are kid less.
These are some of our favorites for sure! The nightlife has way more options than the SkyBar, we tend to go to that place when we are downtown. Everything is within walking distance which is great!
