Great for families and history buffs. Also, the gardens/plants alone are worth the trip to the estate.

A beautiful piece of history in Ft. Myers, well preserved and wonderfully presented. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the audio tour is well done. You can spend as much or as little time as you want and you will still enjoy the homes and labratory as well as the grounds. A don't miss history stop for a non-beach day... More

I really enjoyed the edison ford winter estates, however I thought the price was a bit high to see this attraction. I realize that this is how they stay open however they would attract many more curious people if it was a bit more affordable. I would never be able to take all five of my children and husband. That... More

We've lived in Ft. Myers for 14 winters. This is our #1 attraction. It's always rated as # 1 by local paper and all media. It's not cheap...in the mid to upper $20's for an adult.

A tour of the Manson and the grounds is outstanding. .when you are done head downtown or to the beach or S FM it will be worth your time. Theme changes for the holidays so be prepared. It's a popular place so expect... More
