Site Description

Beautiful Fort Myers, Florida, will once again be the host city for the Church’s Florida satellite site.

As a satellite site, Fort Myers is intended first to be for the Florida brethren who cannot afford to travel to Feast sites outside of Florida. After the first two weeks of registration, Fort Myers will be open to anyone who would like to come to Fort Myers. The site will be able to accommodate up to 200 people.

The beauty of the Gulf Coast of Florida, with many attractions for brethren to visit, and the excellent venue for accommodations and services make this a very good choice for 2024.

Services will be held at the beautifully renovated Crowne Plaza Fort Myers Gulf Coast (formerly Holiday Inn Airport at Gulf Coast Town Center). This property includes a large lake on its north side. 

There are over 30 top restaurants at the Gulf Coast Town Center, across the main boulevard from the Crowne Plaza. Brethren may wish to stay at the Crowne Plaza, where a buffet breakfast comes free with your room if you are with the Church. It is an easy walk to the ballroom for daily services.

This area of southwest Florida offers many attractions. The Edison and Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers include the Edison Botanic Research Laboratory and Museum and are open daily for tours. The causeway to Sanibel and Captiva Islands is 30 minutes away, as is Fort Myers Beach. All three have beautiful white-sand beaches, and there are plenty of seashells to gather on Sanibel and Captiva Islands. The very popular Naples Zoo is 35 minutes away, and the western Everglades National Park’s Ten Thousand Islands guided boat tour is just one hour away. 

High temps during the Feast typically range from the upper 80s to lower 90s. 

Fragrance-controlled room available: No. 

Lodging tax rate: 11.5%. 

Closest airport: Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW), 5 miles. (Hotel/airport shuttle is complimentary.)
