KB Home Community Spotlight: Coves of Estero Bay in Fort Myers, Florida

A cozy gated community may just be one of the best places to find neighbors that will turn into lifelong friends.

Today, we’re stopping by the Coves of Estero Bay community in sunny Fort Myers, Florida.

This up and coming Southwest Florida town is located along the beautiful Caloosahatchee River. Residents and visitors can take full advantage of the city’s gorgeous views at the Fort Myers River District, a waterfront venue with art galleries, restaurants, live theater, hotels, and visitor attractions, including the Southwest Florida Museum of History which is housed in an old railroad depot.

The city has a notable history with four acknowledged historic districts; Edison Park, Dean Park, Downtown, and Seminole Park. When in town, you’ll also want to explore the 20-acre Edison and Ford Winter Estates. Thomas Edison and Henry Ford were friends who bought their winter properties side-by-side. The site now includes a museum and 21-acre botanical garden, in addition to the winter homes. Also located here is the Edison Botanic Research Laboratory, a National Historic Chemical Landmark, where the combined efforts of Edison, Ford, and Harvey Firestone developed a homegrown rubber plant, Goldenrod.

If you’re ready to see what Fort Myers has to offer its residents, then stop by the new Coves of Estero Bay community.
