The Fort Myers Beach Fourth of July fun will last all day, from sun-up until sundown! Spend the holiday week with us and enjoy the sunshine, gulf breezes, and special events that make Fort Myers Beach THE place to be on July 4th. We have some great suggestions for restaurants, activities, and fantastic vacation rentals to enjoy this summer.

Fourth of July Events in Fort Myers Beach

Start the celebration at the annual Fort Myers Beach Fourth of July Parade. The route will begin at Bay Oaks Recreation Center at 10:00 a.m. and continue down Estero Boulevard to Times Square. You’ll love the colorful floats and festive participants! The parade will affect traffic around the island. The Matanzas Pass Bridge will close from 9:00 a.m. until noon for the parade.

The celebration finale will be the Fort Myers Beach Fourth of July Fireworks display at Times Square, beginning at approximately 9:00 a.m. Don’t forget to bring a beach chair and bug spray! Parking will be available at several locations, including Lynn Hall Park on Old San Carlos Boulevard under the bridge. You can also view the fireworks from one of the Town’s beach access points. Enjoy the show, but be familiar with the Town’s ordinance regarding purchased fireworks.

Great Fort Myers Beach Restaurants For Outside Dining

No trip to the Florida gulf coast is complete without dining on fresh seafood! Enjoy a cocktail and choose indoor or outdoor seating at your choice of Fort Myers Beach restaurants with a fantastic view!

Mantanzas On The Bay boasts a great view and is accessible by boat or car! Famous for their pizza, pasta, and fantastic seafood, there is something for everyone on their menu.

Doc Ford’s Rum Bar and Grille is a popular choice for outdoor dining in Fort Myers Beach. Caribbean-inspired dishes bring guests back time and time again. Kids especially will love to watch the boats head in and out of the Gulf while you dine.
