We arrived early afternoon at the hotel and were pleasantly surprised when they checked us right in. With what little time we spend in our hotel room, I am always looking for a bargain. I found the Americas Best Value Inn on Cleveland Ave in Ft. Myers. This little hotel was recently remodeled, was very clean, with the small frig and microwave in the room, a continental breakfast in the morning and was in a decent location. In the front of the hotel is this statue of three horses. Very nice - but as Nick brought to our attention AND to the owner of the hotel - it really does look like the horse is taking a leak...........non-stop!
Since we had time before the dinner show we headed out to play some miniature golf, but along the way we passed the Lakes Regional Park and Nick decided to pull in, park and see what it was all about. Glad he did. This is a beautiful park located on 279 acres with 158 acres of freshwater quarry lake. Below are some pictures of our fun day at the park.
This picture shows the fragrance garden, a view of the park, lake and walking/riding trails. One of two vendors on site is Wheel Fun Rentals. You can rent a paddle boat or bicycle for up to four people to enjoy and tour the park.
