North Fort Myers vacation rentals

Forge a fabulous vacation in Southwest Florida

Set across the Caloosahatchee River from its larger and more populous neighbor Fort Myers, North Fort Myers is a charming mix of bustling little town and balmy south Florida wilderness. The fabulous year-round weather makes outdoor activities a treat no matter the season, and the natural wonders of area wetlands are perfect for adults and kids alike. Whether you want to push yourself to the limit in a kayaking adventure or take the whole family on a easy-going educational cruise, a North Fort Myers vacation rental is an excellent idea.

Nowhere does water like North Fort Myers

If you like the water, you might not spend too much time in your North Fort Myers vacation rental, no matter how much you love it. Vacationers rent powerboats and charter cruises from local marinas to fish and explore the river. The Great Calusa Blueway is kayaker heaven. On your own or as part of a guided tour, you can paddle a region of rivers, lagoons, and beaches. When your arms are noodles, give them a rest on a bird-watching walk. Eagles, osprey, storks, and spoonbills are plentiful.

North of Fort Myers but smack in the middle of family fun

Sure, the gorgeous natural landscape surrounding your North Fort Myers vacation rental is nice, but there are other things attracting travelers to this family-friendly town. The IMAG History & Science center is across the river and just a 6-minute drive from North Fort Myers. It's an amateur (or professional) scientist's dream, with 60 interactive exhibits and the opportunity to meet marine animals, explore the history of southwest Florida, and engineer your own invention. The Sun Splash Water Park is another draw, with slides, flumes, pools, and a cafe to refuel.

Feelin' hot, hot, but not too hot in North Fort Myers

The tropical climate in North Fort Myers isn't just a reason to visit, it's a reason some visitors end up moving here for life. Winters are warm and short. Summers are long and hot, but temps meander around in the 80s, even in August. You can swim all year without sweating your head off. Rainfall is frequent in summer and fall, but frankly, a thunderstorm could strike anytime. Bring your umbrella and get ready to feel good about your complexion. All that humidity is great for the skin.

Man's best friend: the manatee (sorry, dogs!)

Thanks to its location on the Caloosahatchee River, your North Fort Myers vacation rental gives you access to a stunning variety of natural wonders. Inland nature trails give visitors a chance to take in the moss-draped oak trees and other local wildlife while on foot or horseback. Area swamps support no fewer than 4 distinct ecosystems, home to alligators, Florida panthers, sandhill cranes, wild turkeys, and white-tailed deer. The gentle, giant manatee is likely North Fort Myers' most beloved visitor. If you're a fan, be advised: they're most easily spotted December through February.
