Being the county seat for Lee County and the gateway to southwestern Florida makes Fort Myers a great location for one of our car shipping affiliates.
Like much of Florida, Fort Myers has a tropical savanna type climate. This means the winters are short but warm and the summers are long, hot, and humid. The rainy season happens between June and September. This location often caters to those who winter down south or are snowbirds with seasonal homes because of the warmer climate.
About 22% of the city’s geography is water. The Caloosahatchee River runs along the western edge of the city. This river runs into the Gulf from Lake Okeechobee.
The Southwest Florida International Airport services this area and is located southeast of the city. Our Fort Myers car shipping affiliate offers benefits such as a shuttle service to and from this airport. In its earlier history, Fort Myers also benefited from the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, providing both passenger and freight railroad services.
There is a rich history to Fort Myers as well. Three main historical figures used the area to try and find a local resource for rubber during World War I – Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Harvey Firestone. They transplanted different varieties of rubber trees and plants to find one that would grow quickly and thrive in the area. These three, known as part of the Millionaires’ Club, are remembered in statues in Fort Myers’ Centennial Park downtown. Henry Ford and Thomas Edison’s winter estates are now open to the public in a combined property called the Edison and Ford Winter Estates.
Besides the Winter Estates, a few of the other attractions around the city include: Southwest Florida Museum of History, Imaginarium Science Center, and City of Palms Park, the former home of the Boston Red Sox sports training program.
Fort Myers is also home to many colleges and universities: Nova Southeastern University, Hodges University, Keiser University, Florida Gulf Coast University, Southern Technical College, Rasmussen College, and Fort Myers Technical College.
Whether moving to this gateway to southwest Florida or relocating elsewhere, you’ll know your car transport is being cared by professionals with the necessary equipment in a secure facility. They help with our door-to-door and terminal-to-terminal car shipments, whether on the pick-up or delivery end.
