Also known as the River District, Downtown Fort Myers has emerged as a dining, entertainment and nightlife hot spot.

Jim Griffith is one of my close friends. What he achieved in Ft Myers with the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center is a tremendous credit to his creativity, vision and hard work.  He is also a full time musician in the Naples Philharmonic and a graduate of The Julliard School.
