Been to Fort Myers?

Anyone ever visit Fort Myers area? I have a possible job prospect out there and since I have never been, I thought I'd ask others what they thought of it.

Thanks.

Re: Been to Fort Myers?

Fledgling,

I have been through it, never really hung out round there, but I tell you one thing, the west coast is vastly different from the Boca/Deerfield/Ft. Liquordale area.† I'm about 2 hrs north of Ft. Myers in south St. Pete, and it was a big change from livin on the beach at the Deerfield Pier to livin over here.† Granted, I was tired of the "I'm rich and my stuff don't stink" attitude of S. Fla, so for me it was a welcome change, but it is MUCH quieter over this way.† Ft. Myers is probably a little more exciting, than by me, but not much.† What is the job opporitunity?† I do have a friend(well ex-girlfriend) that recently took an job with an engineering firm down there.† If I can help you out in any other way, let me know.

It's quiet. Very. Much older population.

But … significantly lower housing costs. I found a friend a house a block or two from Charlotte Harbor (Port Charlotte/Punta Gorda area, just north of Fort Myers) for in the mid-$100s.

'Good buys there (and everywhere).

Thanks for the insight.† Someone put it matter-of-factly for me the other day:

"Its like it is here but without the materialism"

Thanks to those of you who helped me out.† I really liked the Cape Coral area, close to Fort Myers, and Naples and less than 2 hours from Fort Lauderdale.
