FEED THE SOUL WITH ART AND CULTURE - FORT MYERS
 
(2023 - Winter Issue)

Writer: DREAMSCAPES STAFF



Did you know that Fort Myers is a nationally recognized creative hub? From live theatre performances and fine art exhibitions to intimate concerts and sculpture gardens, there are so many ways for art and culture enthusiasts to infuse each day with thought-provoking experiences. Go beyond the beach to see islands, beaches and neighbourhoods in a whole new light.

DIM THE LIGHTS

See what’s on stage in the historic River District, where the Florida Repertory Theatre company performs at the historical Arcade Theatre. For something a little edgier (think Shakespeare spoofs, slapstick-style plays and more), get your tickets to a performance from The Laboratory Theater of Florida. Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, with unique menus paired to each production, is perfect for a date night or family outing.

ARTS AWAY

Let your imagination run free as you discover an art enclave. Gather inspiration at an art gallery, then try your hand at crafting your own creative piece during a class at Alliance for the Arts. Go on an afternoon stroll through downtown Fort Myers to see the recently installed murals illustrating the area’s history. Let the adventure extend into the evening at Sidney’s Rooftop Sculpture Garden & Reception Area on top of the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center. Don’t forget the monthly Art Walk, where artists and artisans line the streets of the historic River District.

FEEL THE BEAT

You can catch a performance by the acclaimed Gulf Coast Symphony to experience everything from Vivaldi’s Gloria to the soundtracks of their favourite Broadway musicals. If your trip aligns, you won’t want to miss the monthly Music Walk, a free event featuring everything from jazz and blues to rock ’n’ roll. Some of the music industry’s hottest artists stop at Hertz Arena in Estero—so be sure to check the calendar for your favourite performers!

Between art and culture events, you can warm up on white-sand beaches, explore parks and preserves, visit secluded coastal islands, and indulge in fresh Gulf seafood.

There’s a #MyFortMyers story for everyone, so start planning your trip to make memories throughout these islands, beaches and neighbourhoods.
