The Edison and Ford Estates are one of the most popular attractions in Southwest Florida. Located on McGregor Blvd., overlooking the Caloosahatchee River, both estates are next to each other which makes them a great choice for a visit!

Guided tours are available for both estates and it's well worth learning about these historic sites. The Edison Home is full of experiments and inventions. His laboratory has lots of interactive displays for adults and children alike. Edison was an amazing individual and held more than 1,000 patents for his various inventions.

Surprisingly, Edison did not invent the light bulb, but he did invent the filament that made the light bulb possible for mass production and sale to the public. His other major inventions included the fluoroscope, motion picture camera, a dictation device and batteries that powered electric cars. To Edison, his most prized invention was probably the phonograph.

Thomas Edison was also a renown botanist and on his estate you can tour his gardens. His plant research led to major advances using plants to make rubber for the WWII war effort. The estate also has one of the largest banyon trees in the country. It's gigantic and covers almost an acre of land!
