    My sister and I visited this attraction on 11/2/22 and toured the museum, houses, and grounds independently. We arrived about noon and soon discovered that we would not be able to see everything that we wanted to. We then chose to see part of the museum and the main houses We also spent a little time in the gift shop and live plants for sale area. I purchased a bracelet in the gift shop that was supposed to give me the opportunity to track a sea turtle by going to an independent website to register my turtle's name. This turned out to be a hoax./fraud because the website was just to sell more items and the pop-up to follow the turtle did not exist. I doubt that the gift shop is aware of this but maybe should investigate before selling any more of this company's products. We did not allow enough time to see everything but what we did see was very interesting, the homes were furnished with period pieces, and there were large signs to explain a lot of things. We definitely plan to go back when we can allot more time. There was a small food truck on grounds that offered drinks and a few sandwich options. I had a chicken salad on a croissant that came with chips, and an iced coffee. My sister just had iced coffee. We enjoyed everything and it was a good value for the cost.

    If you want to see Florida wildlife, this is a good place to start. Until our last visit, we have always seen alligators - perhaps it was because the water was so high after Hurricane Ian. We saw turtles and a myriad of birds. Often, you can also see water snakes. And this is all viewed from a safe elevated wooden walkway.

    Moved to Florida last year and finally toured the park. Will definitely return for a spring training game next week. There are summer games but the ballpark does not post the schedule. Will try to attend a summer league game this year. What fun!

    I love a road that is lined with trees; this one looks like it could been designed for a movie set with those iconic palm trees.

    Lots of great restaurants and cool shops to choose from.
    I highly recommend supporting local business and since some businesses are still closed, due to the hurricane , I encourage everyone to support the ones that are open.

    Sandy beach, fairly long for walking and quite shallow if you have little ones. There are some shaded areas but i recommend an umbrella if you're concerned about overexposure to the sun. Know that the restrooms are at the entrance near the kayak rentals. This is a bit of distance away. Parking can be challenging too but the lot near the kayak rentals is pretty large. Suggest you drop your stuff at the beach , then drive to park.

    We saw a great performance about Patsy Cline. Small theater with good seats. Parking is a bit of a challenge on weekends.

    A little overwhelming at first, but a great place to find some cool things!
    Not really a bargain hunters paradise, but you can find some nice gifts, cute dresses, antique housewares and some snacks. It was a warmer day in April when we were there and the fans blowing helped cool things down. All of the vendors were fun to interact with since we were obviously out of towners. Definitely a fun place to spend a few hours browsing with friends and even hit the farmers market for some great fresh produce.

    Fort Myers always has a good variety of beer. They have music on the weekends along with food trucks. Wish they weren’t the same type of foods. Two taco trucks rather than one BBQ and one Mexican. It’s nice to have the trucks there though. It is very busy on weekends but they take care of business & the line is not a long wait

    This is a very nice area of Fort Myers and really should not be missed. Estates, water views, palm trees.

    We enjoyed seeing the house and gardens -- it would be nice to have a visual of the people the guide is mentioning so you would be less overloaded with a list of names. A face with the name would really help as well as sometimes an overview of the names with a time line. It is a lot to take in by the audience from hearing some one spewing out name after name.
