Direct Flights from Europe to Fort Myers
Why Visit the Sunshine State?
Ask any American and they’ll all agree on one thing about Florida: it’s a state unlike any other. Boasting year-round warm weather and an unparalleled 1,327 km of coastline, this vibrant southern state combines all comforts of luxury tourism with an exciting tropical vibe. It also offers a wide array of environments to explore, from perfect white sand beaches to the unique marshland of the Everglades National Park.
Florida combines all of this with a rich, multi-ethnic Caribbean heritage and a booming nightlife scene. Best of all, Florida is a remarkably affordable destination. This is especially true when you break away from the major tourists hubs like Miami and stay at lesser-known vacation locales like Fort Myers Beach.
Fort Myers Beach: Perfect Gateway to The Gulf
Did you know that in 2013 over 254,000 Europeans visited Lee County, home to the town of Fort Myers Beach? This should come as no surprise. Since 1994, millions of German tourists have taken the direct Dusseldorf to Fort Myers route offered by Air Berlin.
Fort Myers Beach is an exciting and vibrant town that’s ideally located between trendy Naples and the laid back solitude of Sanibel and Captiva Islands along the Southwestern coast of Florida. Unlike the Atlantic Ocean, the waters of the Gulf of Mexico are always warm and calm, no matter what time of year. This makes them ideal for people who love getting a tan on the beach, even in the middle of winter. Fort Myers Beach is also just a short drive away from numerous attractions in the area including a National Park, scenic lakes, and the tourist hubs of Miami and St. Petersburg.
Things to See In and Around Ft. Myers Beach
Florida is famous for both its Cuban food and traditional Southern cuisine. However, if you’d prefer a taste of home, Fort Myers has two authentic German restaurants. Heidi’s Island Bistro (2943 Estero Blvd. Fort Myers Beach) is an affordable and family-friendly restaurant serving contemporary German and American dishes. For a more elegant dinner, visit the Schnitzel House (17274 San Carlos Blvd. Fort Myers Beach) which features a new special every week.
If you’re traveling with your family, your children will love visiting the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens. This zoo, located just 33 miles south of Fort Myers Beach in the town of Naples, showcases a wide range of exotic animals as well as hosting special events throughout the year.
Would you like to go on a longer trip? Consider taking the Key West Express. This reasonably priced ferry service will take you directly from Fort Myers Beach or Marco Island to Key West, the southernmost point of Florida. Round-trip tickets are available. You may also prefer to rent a car and drive back along the Keys. Be sure to stop at the Everglades National Park along the way for a close look at the exotic plants and animals in the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States.
