Hello Katherine,

They recently opened (April 2014) 2.4 mile nature trail system on Sanibel. Pond Apple Park and Shipley Trail now are connected for a 2.4 mile trail. The trail starts at the roadside park just West of Dixie Beach Blvd on Periwinkle Way. Try the bakery at Jerry's Foods while your on the island for a tasty treat.

Have fun!!

Try an excursion to Useppa Island from Pineland marina. A beautiful place to visit and no cars. On Fort Myers Beach near Bonita, check out Carl Johnson Park.

I love the Lighthouse Waterfront Restaurant & Bar which is right off of the causeway, and enjoying a beer The Mucky Duck and watching the ocean around 1pm.  The Sanibel Bean, which I'm sure you've probably been to, has great breakfast burritos and sandwiches.  Have you considered taking a boat out to Pine Island? I've never been, but it might be worth exploring.
