Hubby and I will be staying 2 nights on Sanibel Island at Thanksgiving. We like to be both near the water and close enough to restaurants to be able to walk to them. I've looked at the website that was posted on the street map thread, and it's very helpful. But I can't really figure out how close any cottages are to the main shopping/eating area of the island. We plan on renting bikes so it may not be an issue if we can just ride the bikes to wherever we want to go.
Also, will anything even be open on Thanksgiving, or does the island pretty much close up that day?
