Many of Fort Myers’s most interesting sights are close to Sanibel, making it a popular place to stay or visit on a day trip. The Sanibel Island Lighthouse and the Dunes Golf and Tennis Club are just two of the popular destinations in the area. Also, be sure to check out the Sanibel Historical Village and Museum and the Bailey - Matthews Shell Museum.
When it’s time to take a break from the noisy streets of Fort Myers, head to one of the many nearby green spaces. Hike around the grounds of the J. N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge.
Spend a few hours with fellow sports fans at Lee County Sports Complex - Hammond Stadium, cheering on the much-loved Fort Myers Miracle. Look like a local and pull on the navy, red and white, the colors of the Fort Myers Miracle.
At the end of a long day exploring the delights of Sanibel, get a good nights sleep in one of the area’s popular hotels or serviced apartments. If you're looking for great service and a comfortable bed, it’s hard to go past the Lani Kai Beachfront Resort, Fort Myers Beach, the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa, and the popular La Quinta Inn & Suites Ft.
