Seaside getaway: Fort Myers Beach and Lovers Key

Fort Myers Beach is a quaint little beach town on Estero Island, often overlooked by tourists who flock to nearby Sanibel and Captiva. With three state preserves nearby, including two accessible only by water, there is ample opportunity for kayaking, canoeing, hiking, biking and camping. Or hide out in a classic Florida mom-and-pop cabin right on the beach.
