Ft. Myers and Naples- The winter home of Thomas Edison and one of the wealthiest cities in the country

One of the main draws for tourists in Ft. Myers is the winter estates of both Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, not to mention the attractive weather, with the average low and high in January being about 54F and 75F respectively. The smaller neighboring city of Naples happens to have the sixth highest per capita income in America, and the second highest proportion of millionaires per capita in the US.

  • I-75, which follows the west coast of Florida through Ft. Myers and turns east at Naples where it heads towards the Fort Lauderdale and Miami area.
  • U.S. Route 41, which runs mostly parallel to I-75 from Ft. Myers to Naples, but turns into State Road 90 at Naples.
  • Tamiami Trail/ State Road 90, picks up where Route 41 leaves off and heads southeast where it becomes Route 41 again.
