The Only Thing To Do In Fort Myers (And It Just Happens To Be Our New Favorite Museum)

19 12 2014

edisonTraveling is about being open to surprises, even when the destination may not seem like your forte. In Fort Myers, FL, a nondescript city on the southwestern region of the state, where even the locals admit the city leans a little on the sleepy side, we stumbled onto the most surprising hidden gem we’ve come across in sometime. The Edison and Ford Winter Estates is a treasure for the city, housing original phonographs created by Edison — the world’s very first iPod, if you will. Guests can take a tour and listen to centuries old music in its original form, among other inventions dreamed up by Edison. A tour of his house next door is also a serene stroll on the water.

 





ManAboutWorld Takes Over the Gulf Coast of Florida

11 12 2014

postcard innI arrived last night in Tampa, took a quick drive down 275-S to St. Pete, and checked into the Postcard Inn On The Beach, a funky, chick shack of a hotel right on the beach, and we mean it; the hotel property leads right into the sand and the Gulf Coast. The hotel has a quirky lobby of bookshelves, surfboards, cozy couches arranged in bright, beachy colors. The rooms are simple, with surf-themes, and we particularly loved the wall art that could be construed as two gay surfer boys holding hands. (Perhaps not, but that’s my story.) Flat-screen TVs, tons of outlets, strong WiFi, and a cheap eats snack shack on the beach next to a cabana of late-night loud music equals a great shabby beach hotel to start off the trip.
