The food scene in Downtown Fort Myers is something to die for! There are so many options, it's hard to choose where to eat.

If you're looking for an escape of the city, check out The Veranda, a beautiful and romantic turn-of-the-century house that serves an award-winning menu and first-class service. Since 1978, it has been serving customers with Southern regional cuisine and charming every single guest with its pretty views.

If you're looking for a more fun atmosphere, Cabo's Cantina has happy hour daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. with  $1 off classic, silver, or gold margaritas. They also have amazing specials throughout the week.

Or maybe you want to transport back to the 1920's with Ford's Garage, a fun burger and beer joint with delicious and unique, gourmet burgers like their Distinguished Gentleman Burger with baby Swiss cheese caramelized onions, arugula, lettuce, tomato, and garlic aioli on a brioche bun. The restaurant offers many opportunities for pictures as there are prohibition-style elements that fill the bar. Whatever you choose, you can't go wrong!
