There are a couple hidden gems here- gorgeous vast water views from a few piers on the trail of the Caloosahatchee River and Downtown Fort Meyers. The trail is flat and has benches for breaks so is great for all ages and levels. It is a boarded trail a little over a mile long through mangroves and nature. There is also a beautiful veteran’s Memorial area here. You can even rent kayaks on some days and there is a special kayak water trail.
