When you think of destinations for a romantic getaway you probably cannot help but think of a spot with breathtaking sunsets. You might also imagine strolling on the beach and exploring unique and interesting places with someone you love. If you are looking for a dreamy locale with oodles of natural beauty, consider planning a romantic getaway to the Fort Myers-Sanibel area. Here’s some inspiration!
Strolling on the Beach
Catch the sunrise or sunset together at Sanibel, Pine Island, or the notoriously romantic Lovers Key. After the sunrise, spend time scouring the beach in search of unique seashells. Die-hard shell lovers should visit the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum for a close-up view of some of southwest Florida’s most gorgeous examples. When you have had enough of the fabulous view and shell collecting, enjoy a meal at one of the many nearby restaurants.
Share a Glass of Vino
Just east of Fort Myers is Eden Vineyards and Winery. Nestled on a 20-acre spread, it’s the perfect place for couples to sample the local vintages. After the wine sampling, stroll through Fort Myers and take in some live music at one of the popular waterfront pubs. Many taverns and bars have fun activities like couples’ karaoke and Happy Hour specials.
Nights in Fort Myers
A different kind of fun begins when the sun goes down in Fort Myers. Take a stroll along the sidewalks and enjoy those tropical breezes. You will find dozens of hot spots where you can dance under the stars, sip on fruity cocktails or listen to a live calypso band. Hit the Junkanoo Beach Bar and Dance Club and soak in the island atmosphere. From reggae to dance parties, you’ll have a blast. Call 239-463-2600 for more information. The Mermaid Lounge is delightful, too! Every Sunday, the lounge offers something they call Sunday Church. Stop by for a screwdriver or a bloody mary just for a dollar! Call 239-765-9100 for more information.
