If you are looking to kick back and relax or go out for some fun times, check out Matlacha, FL. This town has so many fun gift shops and seafood style restaurants, home-town bars with live music and more. You know you're in "older Florida" when you see a mullet-throwing contest. Something to see for a lot of laughs. Matlacha has the "most fishingest" bridge in the world (so they claim) and the fish are cool! There are some neat art galleries here and the stores have many really fun treasures. Not all your typical tourist stuff. We had a lot of fun here. It's only about 20 minutes from Ft Myers.
