    Edison & Ford Winter EstatesEdison & Ford Winter Estates Fort Myers, Florida
    This is the ninth most visited historical site in the United States, and it is no wonder, since two of the country's best inventors would vacation here in the winter time. There is a historical museum and a beautiful seventeen acre botanical garden that sits between the winter homes of Thomas Alva Edison and Henry Ford, alongside the Caloosahatchee River. Edison's house is a historical model of what a house should have been constructed like, with wraparound porch and floor to ceiling windows that allowed the optimum flow of air to breeze through the house and cool it down in the heat. Edison installed some of his first light bulbs in the house, over a century ago, and these bulbs are still burning, albeit that they do cost more to run today. The pool is hooked up with the river, making it one of the most modern circulating pools in the nation, with the botanical garden filled with magnificent trees that Edison brought back from his travels around the world to find just the right filament for his bulbs. Ford's house is right next door and can be seen at the same time, with both houses filled with the memorabilia of yesterday, and the relics that the most affluent could afford.
