Fort Myers Yacht Basin (239-321-7080) is on my short list of favored stops. It’s a public facility that delivers reasonably priced dockage and friendly service without an attitude. The dock office serves as a gathering place for cruisers and resident boaters to jawbone. It’s a short walk to downtown, and there are a number of decent dining choices. If you have the time, visit the Edison and Ford Winter Estates — it’s worth the cab fare. Here you will find the botanic research laboratory where Thomas developed rubber tires for Henry’s cars.
