South for the Winter
Back to school, shorter days, and chirping locusts are all signs summer is coming to an end. Winter is coming and for some people that means moving south for a few months. Ft. Myers, Florida, is a popular spot for the folks in my hometown seeking refuge from snow and ice storms. Honestly, I’m not a fan of sweating and sunburns, but for this view I might consider investing in some Secret and Coppertone.

Hotel and Eatery’s
My family and I visited Florida in February, 2019. My aunt and mother rented a beautiful home in Cape Coral. We arrived a few days before they did so we booked a room at the Sandpiper Gulf Resort in Ft Myers. Our room had 2 beds, a kitchenette with table, and a small sitting area. The activity area, pools, and beach were right outside our room. The staff was very accommodating.
Parking in Ft. Myers is a little sparse and pricey so we spent most of our time at the Sandpiper. We drove to breakfast at The Salty Crab and enjoyed dinner at Charley’s Boathouse Grill. Both were amazing! Publix grocery store was down the road but it was always really busy.
The home my aunt and mother rented in Cape Coral was right off the channel and had a pool so we spent most of our time in the pool and kayaking in the channel. We enjoyed dinner at Ford’s Garage and Overtime Pizzeria and Sports Bar. Both had great food but I suggest avoiding the dinner rush and enjoying the lunch menus if you have small children.
