Hello, I've never been to Sanibel Island before and am traveling down with my parents, my husband, and my brother and his girlfriend. We're staying for a week over the Christmas holiday. We love beaches, swimming, fun happy hours, definitely interested in seeing some wildlife, and we'll have a rental car (so we're not limited to walking/biking distance).
I'd love to hear some ideas about must-see attractions on the island, any day-trips that you'd recommend, and anything special that happens this time of year that you could share with me.
Thanks for your help!
