Spring has sprung(or is still springing), and it has been a busy fun-filled time on Sanibel Island. Part-time residents are headed north on I-75 and I-95 leaving the year-round locals and other Florida folks to mind the store. Our summer season also means “rainy season” begins in early June; you can usually count on some thunder showers around 4pm most days for about an hour or so. This timing works out pretty good as late afternoon it’s time to come in from the beach and pool and get cleaned-up for happy hour and dinner out. Our own Starfish Grille is a wonderful choice for seafood, steaks, and even sushi! For some other great choices for dining out on Sanibel and Captiva islands just click Island restaurants.
Oh, and you’re going to need quality accommodations; we sure can help you with that: Holiday Inn Sanibel Island is directly on the beach, with a swimming pool on the beach, and a poolside tiki bar right on the beach!
Spring training for Major League Baseball has concluded and our local teams, the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins are back north. However we do have local Minor League Baseball nearby in Fort Myers. The Fort Myers Miracle playing home games just off-island at CenturyLink Sports Complex. These players are hungry to get noticed by the big league teams and these games are highly competitive and very entertaining.
So there are some thoughts and ideas for you. Do come down and visit and see what’s new and better yet: what has not changed. See you on the beach!
