Traffic congestion and limited parking spots — two things sure to greet you as you drive to Fort Myers Beach this time of year.

HelloSWFL’s Chloe Nordquist and Katie Egan went to the popular destination to see how the parking economy works.

Many of the local lot owners keep their prices within a certain range of each other, one lot attendant said. Prices can range from $6 for two hours, to $10 a day, to $15 a day.

One man who visits from Wisconsin every couple years said he stays away from the general parking lots and finds more luck with street parking areas.

Either way, expect delays and a higher ticket price when visiting during the holidays and around the busy season from February to April.
