Fort Myers is a city in southwest Florida, known for its beaches.

American industrialists Thomas Edison and Henry Ford owned homes in the city which they used as winter retreats (the homes were next door to each other; Ford considered Edison his mentor); the city ultimately acquired both homes and operates them as a museum and tourist attraction.

The main campus of Florida Gulf Coast University is located in the city.
