Its coastal southwestern Florida location means Fort Myers enjoys comfortable weather nearly every day of the year. The lows in winter rarely go below 50�F, and the highs typically stay in the 70s. Summer brings heat, humidity, and bouts of torrential rain. Highs reach into the 90s on a daily basis from June through early September, and you can see ten inches of rain or more during these months. Any day of the year is a beach day in Fort Myers. The Gulf waters are warmer in the summer, but bright, sunny days abound all year and make the sand a toasty place to work on your tan. Golfers may prefer visiting from late September to May, as the steamy summer sun can make things a bit uncomfortable out on the course.
The beaches in and around Fort Myers boast the best shelling in the country, and shell hunters regularly find treasures such as banded tulips, horse conchs, sand dollars, and starfish on these Gulf Coast beaches. Outdoor enthusiasts will love visiting the untouched natural environment of Estero Bay Preserve State Park, and those looking for a bargain are sure to find a deal at one of the area�s outlet malls.
