You’ve likely heard Fort Myers referred to before as the City of Palms, but Fort Myers also holds the former title of Gladiolus Capital of the World. The colorful bulbs first began sprouting up in Fort Myers in the 1930s, as growers fled to the area to help their crops avoid the winter freeze.
New options in single-family homes are coming to Fort Myers. The new, gated neighborhood of Venetian Pointe is underway, bringing 180 new construction homes to the area. Located in south Fort Myers, the area offers an ideal location for new residential development.
Feel like you’re at the beach on vacation every day at Tortuga, a community of Caribbean-style villas and coach homes located in south Fort Myers. This gated community features lakes and nature preserves in the Bermuda architectural design with tropical landscape and a unique, beautiful Island Club giving residents an easygoing lifestyle experience.
