Teen Activities on Fort Myers Beach


Everyone knows that family vacations are the best kind of vacations. It’s also well known that teenagers can be picky when it comes to family time. For the parents of teens, the best part of a Fort Myers Beach vacation is arriving on the sand and knowing that your teens are going to have a blast! From sun, sand, and surf, to exciting water sports, shopping and dining—your teens won’t want to leave.

Teens are always looking for their next adrenaline rush. Fort Myers Beach has plenty of exhilarating activities that will get their hearts pumping! Start by parasailing hundreds of feet above the water behind a speeding boat. Next, head on over to Fort Myers Beach’s fastest boat ride aboard the “jet boat”. Skim across the waves with a 1200 HP engine thrusting you into the Gulf of Mexico.  Last, hop aboard for a fishing adventure the kids aren’t sure to forget soon. Good Time Charters will have you at the other end of a fishing pole pulling up fish after fish.

After a day of extreme fun, the kids will definitely need a bite to eat. Picky eaters are no challenge when you’ve made your home away from home with us at Gulf View Manor. If you are visiting the Times’ Square area, stop by Yo Taco for a quick fix or Lehne Burger for the juiciest burgers in town. If you would like to stay close to home, consider grabbing dinner with a movie. Beach Theater is directly across the street from our property and is one of the only movie theaters in the area that also serves dinner.

Everyone enjoys picking up a few souvenirs during their beach getaway. There are quite a few shops across the beach that teens are sure to enjoy and find reasonably priced clothing, gift and novelty items. The Goodz has just about anything you may want—part of the fun of going in is checking out the wide variety of items for purchase. Just want to browse? Check out Santini Marina Plaza, some of the island’s most hip stores reside in this quaint shopping mall.

Don’t fret when you travel with teens. Fort Myers Beach has plenty of options for teens that will leave the entire family happy!
