Lee County is located on the southwest coast of the Florida Peninsula, on the Gulf of Mexico. It was created in 1887 from part of Monroe County, and is named in honor of General Robert E. Lee, commander of the Confederate Army during the Civil War. The county has a total area of 1,212 square miles, with over 35% covered by water, including Tarpon Bay and the Caloosahatchee River Estuary. Across Tarpon Bay, the well-known islands of Sanibel and Captiva are part of Lee County, along with over a dozen additional islands. The population was 618,754 as of the 2010 census. The county is a major tourist destination in the region.

The largest city is Cape Coral, but the county seat is Fort Myers. The city is the spring training home of two major league baseball teams, the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins. Both Henry Ford and Thomas Edison had winter homes in Fort Myers. The fort from which the city takes its name was built during the Seminole Wars in 1850, deserted after the conflict, and then occupied again during the Civil War. Abandoned again after  the war, the first settlers arrived from Key West in 1866. It was incorporated nine years later with 349 residents.

A Way Out Bailbonds is definitely the best bail bond company in Ft. Myers!!
Melody answers her phone quickly and is always there to help!
She made the whole bail process simple and fast !
Melody genuinely cares about the family members that are coming to her for help, as if they were her own loved one.
She does her best to assist in a quick bail out, and is there for you every step of the way.
She had my family member bailed out within hours, and didn’t just leave the scene after we had paid the bond fees.
She made sure she hand delivered the paperwork to the jail, and kept in contact up until the release.
Definitely the best by far !!
I highly recommend Melody and her business!!
