Would you recommend biking around the island for a day visit? Which bike rental shop would you suggest, Finnimore's or Billy's Bike rentals? OR- Is the there a different bike rental option? Is there a place close to these shops that we can park our car for the day? Is there a fee? What's the weather like in February? Any restaurant suggestions for lunch?...We're NOT big fans of seafood and were traveling with a 2 year old. Any great bike trails we can't miss out on?
There is free parking available at both Finnimore's and Billy's, but Finnimore's is a little less chaotic. Weather in Feb gets nicer as the month wears on. Cool nights and warm days. They rent those cool like trailers for your 2 year old. Be sure to screen him in. The bike path from Tarpon Bay to Blind Pass is a VERY long stretch with almost no shade, so do a different route.
For biking see www.sanibeltrails.com/ Where to eat - depends on what you like. Matzaluna's is good family pizza and Island Cow is the most popular family place.
