First thing you gotta do is spell it right Ft. Myers. I too moved here after living all of my life in STL. I grew up boating on the Mississippi and LOTO. I moved here three years ago. The boating here is fantastic (except for that salt). Many places to go, bars, restaurants, beaches, islands... Even if the gulf is whipped up you can still boat on the river and or Pine Island sound. Feel free to call me anytime at Nor-Tech and I can give you tips on the good spots to go. 239-772-5507.
