Florida away from the theme parks: Fort Myers and Sanibel Island Florida has much to offer away from thrill rides and theme parks.
Paul Wade finds the “combination of wilderness and creature comforts has long attracted visitors to Sanibel and Fort Myers. Here, on the Gulf Coast of Florida, the climate is gentler than on the Atlantic shore.
The western seaboard is all about soft breezes and sunsets, sandy beaches and warm water, perfect for families.
Running north to south, just off the mainland, is a string of barrier islands. Some are dotted with hotels and holiday villas; others are conservation areas providing a safe haven for Florida’s varied and abundant wildlife. There are old-fashioned wooden fishing piers and even working shrimp boats.”
