Sanibel Island is a very romantic place where you can get back to your Islander self. If your staying on the island, you may take a drive or a bike ride to Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. You can spend hours there slowly riding through the park, stopping every so often to see the wonderful wildlife Sanibel Island has to offer. There are some trails where you can pull over and take a stroll as well as an overlook tour for those perfect photographs.
Afterwards, you will probably be hungry! Stop by Blue Giraffe Island Dining restaurant for lunch or dinner. Be sure to try their chicken or a dish with key lime aioli sauce. It’s amazing and I’ve been trying to figure out this recipe to duplicate it for so long now!
On your way back to your place, stop into Jerry’s Grocery Store. This place is worth visiting just for the Key Lime Pie and the couple shops that are connected to the building to get some souvenirs. Be sure to say hello to the birds. Caesar is my favorite!
