FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla.,- Iconic and unique!
Those are some of words being used to describe a new Fort Myers Beach attraction.
A travel trailer has become the newest way beach goers will be able to keep up with all of the islands happenings.
"There's nothing that speaks of the American vacation than an old stream travel trailer!"
This is Roxie- converted from a 1967 airstream travel trailer to mobile visitor center!
"We wanted to do something that was fun and iconic and that's why we chose a airstream travel trailer," said Bud Nocera, President of FMB Chamber of Commerce.
The artwork tells the story of a unique island.
"If you look at the artwork- Times Square is in here, the pier is in here, you have shrimp boats in the artwork; Everything that we did on this is really iconic to Fort Myers Beach."
Island residents and visitors will be able to keep up with all the latest island happenings.
"It's gonna be great! It's going to allow our visitors to walk up and find out what's happening, what's going out, who's playing and who has specials," said Nocera.
Nocera tells us the idea comes from food vendor wagons he spotted in Tallahassee.
"The whole concept comes from that. It was being able to take an airstream and repurpose it and turn it into something that would be great for visitor information."
The Roxie will be stationed at Santini Plaza or on San Carlos Boulevard.
The information center is named after Roxie Smith, along time advocate of tourism in the State of Florida.
