|Because History Matters:
Self-Guided Historic Island Tours
When you stop to admire the sweeping elevation of the Matanzas Pass Bridge, you see the brilliant turquoise paint that adorns it, and boats sailing serenely on sparkling waters beneath its arch. What you can’t see are the ghosts of bridges past: the original structures that once joined Fort Myers Beach to San Carlos Island.Now, thanks to the Estero Island Historic Society (EIHS), you can view those vanished åwere part of our barrier island’s earlier days. A new self-guided walking or bike tour is available to visitors and residents alike through the Footprints in Time Historic island Tour.
