Fun in Florida
Ah, vacation. That magical summer word that seems to erase all the stresses of everyday life. When my bestie called me up a few months ago and asked if I wanted to join her for a whole week of vacay shenanigans I just couldn’t say no. So we headed down to the sunny city of Ft. Myers Beach, FL for a little time out. A whole week without work or deadlines or rush hour. It was heaven on Earth.
Ft. Myers Beach is a little town of about 7,000 on Estero Island. This popular destination has all the essentials of a city (nightlife, dining, activities) with the charms of a small town. There is certainly something for everyone at Ft. Myers Beach. See a movie at the local dine-in theater or do a little shopping in Time Square. Go parasailing over the ocean or take a day trip to the neighboring island of Sanibel. If you’re feeling especially adventurous (and I know you are) take a trip into the everglades or go deep-sea fishing. Before you leave, though, I command that you sit down for a drink at one of beach-side bars and get to know the staff. If you want to get a feel for a city, there is no quicker way than making connections with the people who live there. Most everyone we talked to were incredibly friendly, especially the rad people at the Beached Whale and Junkanoo. If you decided to take a trip to FMB this summer, let me know about your experience. What did you like? What didn’t you like? Wherever your little heart may take you this summer just remember to have fun!
