Will be turning 50 this November and thinking about a long weekend to Fort Meyer area. The reason I chose Ft Meyer is the sea shells, beaches, weather(from wisconsin). Do not know what area to stay in. Captiva,Sanibel, Ft. Meyer beach area. Heard that Cap[tiva and Sanibel is slow paced. Would it be wise to stay in FT Meyers beach and make the Islands a day trip? Hopefully you can help me.
I will be renting a car.
I am looking for a nice beach, near good restaurants, and shopping, beach bars,sunsets and some activites nearby.
Where would you stay if it was your first time in the Fort Meyers area.
