Lee County, located in the southwestern region of Florida, is a beautiful area with vibrant communities such as Fort Myers and Sanibel. It is the ideal destination to visit all year round, with a variety of events and festivals taking place during the fall season. From art walks to car shows, there is something for everyone in Lee County. Manatee Park is a popular spot for spotting Florida manatees in Lee County.
During the coldest days of winter, when the temperature in the Gulf of Mexico drops below 20°C (68°F), manatees seek out the warm water in the Manatee Park Canal. This hot water is created as a by-product of the cooling equipment at the Florida Power and Lighting plant located across the street. The Lee County Sports Complex is home to Hammond Stadium, five additional playing fields, and the Twins Player Development Academy. It also provides an extensive outdoor endurance sports community that offers events and training opportunities in hockey, tennis, and water sports.
In collaboration with Lee County Parks & Recreation and several hotel partners, visitors can be sure that their event will be a success in the greater Fort Myers area. Lee County residents provide services to visitors as volunteer interpretive naturalists trained in part by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The Lee County Sports Development staff can help you find the right place to grow your event here in Lee County. There are several events that take place every month in Fort Myers, such as the Art Walk (held on the first Friday of each month in downtown Fort Myers), the Music Walk (held every third Friday in downtown Fort Myers), and the Caribbean Cruise-In Car Show (held on the first Monday of each month). So if you're looking for an exciting experience this fall season, come to Lee County for some of the best beach events around!.
