The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel serve as an inspiring backdrop for meetings, no matter what time of year. But there are notable benefits to holding your meeting here in the spring – the weather is perfectly mild and the crowds are at a minimum, perfect for many springtime activities. Since it doesn’t have to be all work and no play, here are five spring activities to keep your attendees entertained when there’s a break in the schedule.
Discover the true meaning of “touch base.” Fort Myers is home to the spring training grounds for the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox. With games happening almost daily from the middle of February through March, you can often get your tickets the day of the game, with prices beginning at just $9 for outfield seats.
Springtime in Southwest Florida also happens to be perfect patio weather. Temperatures are mild and raindrops are few and far between. When your attendees are ready to let off some steam after the last meeting of the day, meet up for mojitos at one of Fort Myers’ many lively watering holes.
With annual music festivals like the Island Hopper Songwriter Fest gaining more fans every year, musicians are flocking to the area more than ever, and they’re sticking around. As a result, scoping out live music has become one of the most popular things to do in the Fort Myers area. If you like it loud, make your way to the Buddha Rock Club for nationally touring acts and nightly DJs. For a more stripped-down, acoustic sound, enjoy a mellower set at many of the beach bars and restaurants like The Cottage and The Beached Whale.
To get your team thinking outside the box, take them out of the conference room and out on the water. The concepts of kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) are fairly easy to grasp, and the spring weather makes for easy paddling. Head out on a guided excursion, and be on the lookout for manatees – in the cooler months, they tend to move inland where water temperatures are warmer.
A favorite among things to do near Sanibel Island, Dolphin Cruises are always a crowd-pleaser. Stress seems to melt away and you can’t help but smile when you see friendly dolphins playing in the boat’s wake. Opt for a shelling cruise or a sunset cruise for added enjoyment.
If you’re looking for post-meeting entertainment, there’s a wealth of springtime solutions on The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel. Getting to work in Southwest Florida has never been so much fun.
