By David SillitoeRead moreA few days ago, I made the drive to Fort Myers to visit the Fort Myers hotel in Florida.
It’s one of the largest in the state, a sprawling hotel complex that includes a football stadium and a marina and is now home to some of the most iconic restaurants in the US, including Chipotle and El Pollo Loco.
The Fort Myers property was once the headquarters of the US military, but the last time I visited was back in 2017 when I visited with the families of fallen soldiers.
The next time I’d visit, the place would be completely different.
This time, I had an opportunity to take a tour of the hotel.
It wasn’t long before my first question: What does it cost to rent the Fort?
After a few minutes of thought, I realised that it was a lot less than what I’d been paying to rent it out, but it’s still an eye-watering amount of money.
The hotel’s main purpose is for tourists, but that’s not the only thing the hotel has going for it.
The hotel is also a destination for people who want to have a good time in Fort Myers.
The area is full of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, so when you’re in Fort Lauderdale, you can easily go to the bars and get drunk.
I can’t think of a single other place where you can get to experience that atmosphere, let alone the kind of fun it has.
I started with a guided tour of Fort Myers, which was interesting because I was going to spend the majority of my time in the hotel, which means I wouldn’t be able to see much of the surrounding area, but I was able to take pictures of the various establishments that were open.
I then decided to go to a bar and find out what it was all about.
The bar was a little too big to fit in my car, so I decided to buy a small stool and sit down on it.
I was greeted by a group of people, which made me feel like a real tourist.
I’m pretty sure that was the only person who recognised me from Fort Myers for some reason.
They told me that I could buy the bar a drink, and when I did, they took a photo with me and sent it to my Facebook page.
I couldn’t have asked for a better night out, and the only negative I had to report was the fact that there was no way I could have found a good bar that wasn’t booked up already.
But hey, it’s what I do.
