The city of Fort Myers, FL is always a great place to visit, but it’s really fun to visit when the city is having a special event. Over the next few months the city will host several shows and festivals. But if you decide to come visit during these events, you will need a place to stay. Try these suggestions from local real estate professionals if you’re looking for a vacation rental.

1. The Fort Myers Art Walk. This April event spans a large part of the River District and culminates in a party Friday and Saturday night. If you’re going, the place to stay is anywhere in this district. Renting a home or condo on Ft. Myers Beach allows you to be close enough to the party yet have the beach access whenever you desire.

2. The Edison Festival of Light in February is a highlight of the year in Fort Myers. With festivities happening all around town, though, picking the right place to stay can be a challenge. Having your own condo instead of a hotel room will give you more kitchen and living space, letting you save some money and be able to stay longer. With parts of the festival going on all month, you’ll want to stay as long as possible.

3. The 8th Annual Food and Wine Weekend is being hosted by the Gasparilla Inn in October. This weekend is a great opportunity to sample new foods paired with great wines and meet the chefs who make the dishes. Staying on the water is a great idea if you’re thinking of trying this experience.  As a bonus, being near the beach means that you’ll get to enjoy the beautiful views of the ocean. You might even want to consider inviting friends and family along, and sharing a large beach house.

These are just a few of the events going on in Fort Myers throughout the year. No matter when you plan your trip, though, you’ll find a great vacation rental to make your trip a memorable one.
