There is an Alternative: Fort Myers Beach
When life starts moving too fast it’s important to do the right thing and remove yourself from the fray. It’ll be impossible not to relax and remember what’s important once you’ve arrived in Fort Myers Beach thanks to the Gulf of Mexico, the lure of a convenient vacation condo and the promise of many long and lovely sun-dappled days.
This idyllic region packs a big punch when it comes to offering the best snorkeling, fishing, diving, and boating conditions. Fort Myers Beach joins Sanibel and Captiva, Cape Coral and many others to make a larger picture of vacation perfection, so believe that this trip will be all about the beach. From Bowditch Point all the way down to Lovers Key State Park there are plenty of places to stroll, kayak and drive (although you’ll be more relaxed if you avoid that last option as much as possible – choose an island trolley instead) these marvelous miles of white sandy shoreline.
Picnics, beachcombing, reading a book…the choice is yours as to how you’ll spend the day. Imagine the possibilities; between these options as well as shopping at Times Square, picking up groceries for a backyard beach house barbeque, going bird watching and playing a few rounds of golf, there’s something for everyone to do. Even the most diverse groups will find peace and harmony as Fort Myers Beach displays its many charms and delivers on the promise it has made to take you far away.
If you happen to be interested, Disney/Orlando is about three hours away and Miami is two, so a day trip isn’t out of the question. Don’t be surprised, however, if you end up feeling pretty content to linger where you landed – on this little piece of coastal paradise.
