My girlfriend and I were out for a night on the town, to celebrate our engagement and get into the Christmas Spirit. We decided to start the evening with a visit to the annual Fort Myers Woman's Club Holiday House, held at the historic Burroughs and Langford-Kingston Homes in downtown Fort Myers. Both homes were decorated with elaborate Christmas Ornaments. The Burroughs Home and Gardens is a 2.45 acre mansion overlooking the Caloosahatchee River in historic downtown Fort Myers. The 2.5 story 6000 square foot home, completed in 1901 is a fine example Georgian Revival architecture. The house includes 14 foot ceilings, Florida Pine floors, mahogany fire place and a winding grand staircase. The grounds featured a lush tropical setting of assorted palm trees overlooking the mile wide river and bridge. Decorated with lights, this made for a very romantic start to our dinner date evening. The cost of the tour was only $5. and lasted for one hour. I must say, this night scored a lot of points for my street credibility.
