The Edison-Ford Winter Estates are now on public display, and no Fort Myers vacation is complete without stopping to see some of Edison's lesser-known inventions.

Fort Myers is now known as the City of Palms after Thomas Edison planted hundreds of towering royal palms along McGregor Boulevard, a historic residential street and site of his winter estate.

Lonely Planet: Fort Myers
Just a sleepy resort town in 1885, Fort Myers was pretty enough to entice Thomas Edison to build his winter home here. Among his many visions was palm-lined avenues, which he kicked off with a gift of more than 800 trees. His arboreal legacy lives on, and today 14 miles of McGregor Blvd are lined with more than 2000 palms. It's a nice introduction to what's still a fairly sleepy town; would that the rest of it were as impressive.

See how the early innovators lived at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates. In addition to Edison's winter home, you'll see his laboratory, gardens and a museum dedicated to his work, as well as the estate Henry Ford bought next door and the largest banyan tree in the continental US.

Just north of Fort Myers, take a 90-minute swamp-buggy wildlife excursion through pinewoods, freshwater marsh and cypress swamp, led by Babcock Wilderness Adventure.

Boardwalks and bridges over trails allow visitors access to a pavilion along Estero Back Bay where birds such as ospreys and pelicans fish.
