Kickoff to Summer: Start Planning Your Memorial Day


This Memorial Day weekend may look different than years past, but there’s still plenty of ways to unwind with your loved ones throughout Fort Myers and Sanibel. Discover all the ways to enjoy life at a leisurely pace, stay socially distanced and create quality memories that are rich with meaning.

Cottagecore culture has always been a natural way of life here. Embrace a sense of coastal nostalgia with small cottage rentals where you can wake up to waterfront views and time to yourself. On a secluded island off the shores of Captiva, Cabbage Key Inn is only accessible by boat — no cars, no paved roads and acres of tropical vegetation to explore. Castaway Cottages is a jewel on Sanibel Island with private abodes overlooking the Gulf or the bay. Click here for more charming accommodations all along the coastline.


Stay within your bubble and stretch out in a space that’s all your own with a private vacation rental or villa. Family, friends, kids, pets? You can find a place that’s just the right size and configuration to meet your needs. Build memories as you cook meals together and watch the sunset from your private deck, set out on bicycle rides and hike local trails, and explore the surrounding community just like a local. Start planning your stay today.

Even if you can’t feel the fresh breezes and inhale that salty sea air, you can get the real-life vibe of our beaches. Our live beach cams offer more than just enjoyable views from your desktop. You can discover which beach resorts are the right style for you, see the beaches and water in real time, and even get a feel for the water conditions. Click here to see them all.
