A lot of people ask us what is the best time of year to come to Fort Myers. While we think the area is perfect year-round, there are a few weeks that tend to be our favorites. One of these times is right around the corner; the end of the summer.

With so many families taking their summer vacations in June and July, many of our most popular rentals and attractions see a decline in numbers as people start thinking more about going back to school than on vacation. With Labor Day weekend around the corner, though, everything is still open and fully staffed. For locals and vacationers, this means getting great deals on everything from vacation rentals to restaurants while not having to worry about the crowds.

The end of summer means the start of the quietest vacation rental season in Fort Myers. That means that condos and homes that were next to impossible to get into during winter, and even the beginning of summer, are now available at significant discounts. There’s also a lot of availability, making this time ideal for large families, corporate retreats, and people just looking for a last-minute vacation. If there was a property you were curious to try, this can be a great time of year to do it.

One of our favorite things about Fort Myers Beach this time of year is that there are a lot of options for people looking for activities. The beach is perfect for swimming, water sports, and sunbathing. The water is warm and cool breezes take the edge off the summer heat. During cooling afternoon showers, relax indoors with that book you’ve been meaning to read, catch up on missed episodes of your favorite series, or go watch one of the many amazing summer blockbusters in cinema. Should you choose, you could also enjoy happy-hour in several locations. In fact, many locals use this time of year to take advantage of all of the wonderful things that Fort Myers Beach has to offer. You can get a table at our best restaurants with virtually no wait, there’s always an open spot to stretch out your blanket on the beach, and there’s hardly any traffic.

If you’re thinking about getting in one more vacation this year before going back to school or work, come on down to Fort Myers Beach. There are plenty of vacation condos, homes, and cottages available at great prices to fit any size group! Everyone could use a little soft white sand between their toes before starting another hectic year.
