“Bowling, even for non-military”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We love the inexpensive classic bowling alley at Ft. Myer. You have to go through an inspection to get on base but the low prices and family atmospher make it a great place to hang out with friends and bowl a few games. The wine selection leaves a lot to be desired but what do you really expect from a bowling alley. It's fun, not fabulous.

“Access Limited”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We visited onm a Saturday and ran into restrictions and closed gates. The signs were not helpful and one does not know that a gate is closed until one gets there. Not tourist friendly.

“Spent my childhood at Ft. Myers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

I grew up in Arlington in a military family. We spent so much time at Ft. Myers. Swimming, bowling, the military parades which were absolutely beautiful to watch, especially at night. Ft. Myers has px, commissary and medical facilities and is right next to Henderson Hall and Arlington National Cemetery.

Small, nice post. Was there for business/government training. Nice spacious community club. Can see the edge of Arlington Cemetery just past the community club.

“Home of the Old Guard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

The famous home of the most precision military unit in the world. The 3rd Infantry Regiment (Old Guard) and their elite Tomb Guards diligently train and prepare for their somber duties on these beautiful grounds.
