We recently stayed again at the Edison Beach House in Fort Myers Beach. It was of little surprise when we looked at our Twitter feed, and saw that they had been selected as a Top 10 Florida business. The designation came from “Florida’s Top Recommended.”

From restaurants to hotels and even real estate agents, their recommendations are designed to help people select the best in the Sunshine State. Of course we knew this one. We have been blogging about the Edison almost since we started traveling and enjoying Florida.

The Edison Beach House. The big pink hotel where all the suites face out onto the Gulf.

This actually was our fourth time at the Edison Beach House and we must admit we have become rather spoiled. This is an historic lodging facility – but the owners have kept the facilities up to date. From the wonderful balconies to the in-room washer/dryers, the accommodations provided for our comforts and needs.

During our most recent stay we had an opportunity to watch some Saturday beach yoga.

It’s Close to Everything

Although the folks at Florida’s Top Recommended didn’t mention it, we’ll tell you that it’s within walking distance of everything you need. A leisurely stroll took us down to the famous Fort Myers Pier. That’s also the location of “Times Square.”

Times Square is a two block area peppered with restaurants, gift shops and the like. It also is at the epicenter where the beach, the pier and Lynn Hall Memorial Park intersect. We love this place and especially the street entertainers that are there. From jump rope experts to magicians and musicians – there’s always something to see.

The night we were there, a magician simply named Gregory attempted to toss a playing card over a nearby building. He was thwarted by a stiff evening Gulf breeze.

Moreover, just across the street from Times Square is Old San Carlos Boulevard. It too is lined with all manner of souvenir and apparel shops as well as a full array of restaurants.

However, if you want to increase your range and not worry about parking. Never fear, we discovered that the Edison has a full array of bicycles that are equipped to ride either along the streets or up the beach to just about anywhere you need to go.

Sturdy and brightly colored, there are plenty of two wheelers at your disposal at the Edison Beach House.

Yes, the Edison Beach House has earned another award. However. followers of this blog should know by now it is special. This is a lodging that pays attention to detail. Whether you are with family or are looking for a romantic getaway, at Fort Myers Beach it’s difficult to top the Edison.
