Fort Myers Beach

Now we couldn’t forget Fort Myers Beach for the best places to watch fireworks in Fort Myers. This might be one of my favorites. The fireworks take place right over the pier and are amazing. This event is 8:45 – 10:00, I would recomend getting there early. My suggetion would be, pack a picnic dinner, watch the sunset and then enjoy the fireworks, festivities and maybe an ice cream cone at Time Square. The Matanzas Pass Bridge will be closed from 9:30 pm – 11 pm. So, you can get off the island but not on.
