The Only Thing To Do In Fort Myers (And It Just Happens To Be Our New Favorite Museum)

edisonTraveling is about being open to surprises, even when the destination may not seem like your forte. In Fort Myers, FL, a nondescript city on the southwestern region of the state, where even the locals admit the city leans a little on the sleepy side, we stumbled onto the most surprising hidden gem we’ve come across in sometime. The Edison and Ford Winter Estates is a treasure for the city, housing original phonographs created by Edison — the world’s very first iPod, if you will. Guests can take a tour and listen to centuries old music in its original form, among other inventions dreamed up by Edison. A tour of his house next door is also a serene stroll on the water.
