two months of fun Posted On: 12/29/2006 12:49:35 PM
Fort Myers is a fun place, but only for a couple of months a year. (November and December) after that the place is so packed with tourists that don't know how to drive that it can be very frustrating.
The cost of living is higher than most cities that I've lived in.
To get a decent apartment you would need $800 a month and your electric bill will be at least 200 a month (Summer).
The summer storms are very beautiful, but you need to work so much that you rarely get time to enjoy the beauty here. No state tax is taken out of your check, but you can rarely find a job that pays $15 an hour. Most jobs are minimum wage or $10/hr., even some construction!
If you're retiring you can get some great deals in trailor communities, unless you're rich you really can't enjoy the beautiful area.
They have covered the beaches with condo buildings so you can't see the gulf unless you visit the bars!
At least in the bigger cities, like Chicago you can walk along the beach without walkin on private property!
