Edison and Ford Winter Estates

Posted on: 2.12.2015

I can't believe I have lived here for 17 years and never been to the Edison and Ford Winter Estates before!  It is really fun and a beautiful piece of property.  My husband and I did the whole thing, including the gardens, houses, museum, and botanical lab, on a self-guided tour with an audio guide about a year ago.  The entry fee was $20 each and it took us about 2 hours to cover it.  There is a lot of history and fun facts throughout the properties on signs and via the audio guide.  Plus it is located on the Caloosahatchee River and benches have been placed all over to relax and enjoy.  It was really beautiful! Rarely are you told that you can walk on the grass at these historical locations, but here you can explore wherever you want and are told only to avoid stepping on the roots of trees and not pick any fruits or flowers.

Walking around the estates reminded us of being in Italy and going through the palaces, gardens, and museums.  And thinking about that trip is getting me excited for our next trip to Spain this summer!
