Fort Myers River District Walking Path

Fort Myers River Walk Path | 164/365 Things to Do

The downtown Fort Myers River District area is quite a vibrant area with a ton of things to do.  There are a variety of planned events throughout the year including Art Walk which is when they close down the downtown area to vehicles and it’s an art fair and public social. 

Just a few blocks from that downtown area is the walking path that runs along the river. If you’re up for the exercise you can create your own loop of walking that includes downtown sidewalks and the path along the river that runs from Centennial Park to Lookout Pier.  This is a short path but perfect if you have littles with you or those who aren’t as mobile. It’s not a huge commitment in stamina and it’s scenic so you can stop and sit and watch boats or people watch. 

There are a variety of downtown restaurants that serve fare from pizza by the slice to full meals at Ford’s Garage or Joe’s Crab Shack.

If you need an address to find the area 2000 W First St, Fort Myers, FL 33901 should get you near a parking lot.  There is also a parking garage in the general vicinity, also.
