If recent temperature drops have you longing for the warmth and sunshine of summer, you’re not alone. Fortunately, there’s still a chance for you to soak up the sun—and enjoy some boating fun in the process!
The 44th Annual Fort Myers Boat Show kicks off on November 17th, and it’s set to be an exciting event! Take a look at today’s blog for info and highlights about this year’s show—as well as a few can’t-miss features of Fort Myers, located at the heart of a year-round paradise.
Early holiday shopping
It may still be November, but the holidays are right around the corner. The Fort Myers Boat Show offers boat lovers of every type a chance to get some early holiday shopping done—and instead of shoving for deals on Black Friday, you’ll be brushing shoulders with people who love boating just as much as you do, amidst a sunny, resort-style backdrop. You can’t get much better than that.
What can you expect from the show? Gear, accessories and essentials for on and off the water, everything from boat shoes to fishing equipment—to name a few!
Fishin’ Frank’s Fishin’ Village
If you love to fish, Fishin’ Frank’s Fishin’ Village is the place to be at this year’s show. Watch as Fort Myers’ famous Centennial Park is transformed into a treasure trove of fishing gear, seminars, demos, talks by seasoned charter captains and even a fishing simulator that lets you try for that big catch.
Fort Myers delights at every corner
The show is sure to please—but you can’t visit Fort Myers without experiencing its on and off-the-water thrills, too! North Fort Myers is home to Pop Ash Creek, a serene preserve perfect for tranquil canoe or kayak rides. You can also head down to Fort Myers Beach, a popular coastal spot for boaters of all kinds. Finally, once you’re ready to wrap up the day, head back to shore and grab a bite to eat at the Historic River District in Downtown Fort Myers, a spot that packs quaint Florida charm into convenient blocks of shops and restaurants waiting to be discovered.
During your time at this year’s show, don’t forget to stop by local Monterey dealer, Cape Coral Marine, for an inside look at the latest Monterey models and specials. We look forward to seeing you there!
