River District Holidays

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
Come on, it’s lovely weather in The Fort Myers River District
Experience the magic of Old Florida Yuletide cheer only as only the charming Fort Myers River District can do.

From late November until early January, historic downtown Fort Myers transforms into a Floridian winter wonderland unlike any other destination in the state. From sunrise to sundown, there is always something to do in the River District—especially during the holiday season.

Shop, dine and explore Southwest Florida’s best-kept secret. With over 25 locally owned shops and boutiques, 50 restaurant and entertainment venues and more than 20 art, attraction and activity destinations, holiday preparation blends seamlessly with holiday pleasure.

Days full of sun and nights full of light await. From the Annual Holiday Stroll to The Edison & Ford Holiday Nights, as well as weekly cultural events and daily outdoor adventures, there is never a dull moment in our corner of Southwest Florida.
