Fort Myers or Fort Myers Beach?

Should we stay in Fort Myers or Fort Myers Beach - looking to stay a week; where is the best place to look for an apartment / condo to rent - any recommendations of sites to look at?

we are a 55+ active couple - like walking, visiting museums / natural attractions , coffee shops, good sea-food.

we are in Florida for 3 weeks - have worked out the Keys - now need help with the rest!

Many thanks

Definitely Ft. Myers Beach!!! Look on TripAdvisor or VRBO for places to stay. I'm hearing good reviews about the Neptune Inn.

We are your age as well and we love FMB. We like to get bikes and take evening bike rides. We love riding down to Times Square for a slice of pizza at Citrola's. FMB is really laid back and that is what we really like about the area. We like going to Santini plaza for ice-cream and one place we always have to go to breakfast is Heavenly Biscuit...yummy! We rent through www.royalshell.com and always stay mid island at a villa named SunCatcher or if that one is booked the one right beside named SunSeeker. Have always been pleased.

Hope you have a great trip!
