THE FORD EDISON WINTER ESTATES
For visitors to Fort Myers, the winter estates of these two great inventors are an interesting must-see. Take a tour of the gardens, laboratories, homes, and more.
Visitors can explore 20 acres of historical buildings, gardens, the Edison Botanic Research Lab, and the Edison Ford Museum, which has hundreds of inventions, artifacts and special exhibits. The park-like environment is also great for special events, weddings, corporate functions and meetings, exhibits, and ongoing education programming, if it should fit with your stay at Sea Oats.
Throughout the year, various local historical societies offer visitors a chance to step back into “old Florida” and the opportunity to learn about unique historical, scientific, and cultural experiences. Open daily 9:00 am to 5:30 pm, with guided tours available until 4:00 pm.
