I'm in the interview process for a position in the Fort Myers area. I'll know by the end of the month if they want me to move down there. So, I'm being proactive and looking at apartments and locations for a temporary move till I buy a house down there. I'm coming from Phoenix, Az and pay about 750 for a single bedroom apartment. Prices there I know are going to be cheaper. But now I'm just looking for location. I found one that is on Metro Parkway just north of Winkler Ave. How's that location? I'm not sure if that's downtown or how FM is set up. I keep hearing names of residential areas but I can't find a map that gives me those locations.

I know in the long run I'll be moving to Cape Coral, seems that area has the nicer homes and seems more "family" oriented...my finance has 2 children so I want that environment.

The job is actually located in North Ft. Myers so I don't know if I should look for something that I don't have to take the bridge everyday....any help would be great!

If the job is in North Ft. Myers, I highly recommend renting a place in NE Cape Coral. It would be quite a bit more convenient and you wouldn't have to deal with Ft. Myer's rush hour traffic. New 3/2 homes are renting for $750-800. You'd also get to know the areas of Cape Coral a little better.

Good luck on the interviewing!

Yes, Cape Coral would be the place to live if you're going to work in NFM. No bridge between the 2, and the commute is less busy. Also, the Cape has some nice neighborhoods and is one of the fastest growing communities in the area. Best of luck!
