Among the first to explore the beaches and tropical wilderness of Fort Myers were Native American cultures that depended heavily upon marine life from the Gulf of Mexico. The next group of explorers, sailing 16th century Spanish galleons, arrived in those same Gulf waters only to change the course of history. After his stop by the Southwest Florida Museum of History, VISIT FLORIDA’s Larry Elliston heads to the Fort Myers Imaginarium, where new generations of young explorers are learning about science and the natural world.
