  1. Another fantastic post where you share so many fun facts! I didn’t know that about Henry Ford and Thomas Edison! How neat is that?! I have been to Ft. Myers as I flew into the airport you mentioned and then went on to Sanibel and Captiva, but to answer your question on where we visited in Ft. Myers… I know we went to a huge mall, but can’t remember the name. Also went to a beautiful Thai Restaurant but can’t remember the name of it either. Haha! That aside, I do recall it being a beautiful place with lots to do. Will have to check out some of the things you mentioned here. Loads of fun! Lovers Key State Park looks beautiful! Thanks for sharing.
