Outdoor Weekend Getaway in Sanibel and Fort Myers
The Sanibel/Fort Myers area makes a great winter getaway for outdoor enthusiasts from November to April, with mild, sunny weather in the 60s and 70s and an absence of biting insects. November through January is the driest period, with average rainfall under two inches per month.
Those willing to brave the steamy summers will enjoy the absence of crowds, warm Gulf waters, and hotel rates dropping as much as 50 percent — just bring bug repellent for the parks.
November's American Sandsculpting Championship and Beach Festival attracts some of the world's top sand sculptors to Fort Myers Beach for a family-friendly showcase of imaginative, natural art.
