A few of our upcoming events!

As I write this, it is snowing like crazy over millions of people as they hunt for shovels and snowblowers. It's below freezing in parts of all 50 states. Even in Florida, but that weather is many miles from us and our daytime temp is a chilly (to locals) 67 degrees. It's supposed to last for one day and then southwest Florida gets back to it's usual sunny 80 degrees by the weekend!

​Our busy winter season is almost here so it's time to start planning our fun! Sanibel and Captiva Islands have lots of scheduled events coming up and you can mark them in your calander.  In between scheduled events you can always go shelling, fishing, sightseeing and just hanging at the beach! Our islands are the best!
One of our favorite island events is the Luminary Festival. This year it's our 30th annual Luminary and is scheduled for December 5th on Sanibel and December 6th on Captiva. The Luminary is a great time to enjoy all the shops and special events planned. The event time is from 5:30 to 9:00 and you can find more information at this site. Sanibel Island things to do

Residents and visitors decorate their boats and head from South Seas toward 'Tween Waters Marina along the Roosevelt Channel. A few of the best viewing areas are Jensen's Marina, The Green Flash, McCarthy’s Marina, and "Tween Waters Marina. If you have a boat and want to participate, all of the island marinas have special rates for boat dockage. Click Here for more info.

On another subject, and some island bragging rights, a couple of days ago the League of American Bicyclists recognized the City of Sanibel with a "Silver" Bicycle Friendly Community award. The "Silver" BFC award recognizes Sanibel's commitment to improving conditions for bicycling through promotion, education programs, infrastructure and pro-bicycling policies. Only three other Florida communities hold this designation. Sanibel has more than 25 miles of paved "Shared Use" paths and 8 miles of natural surface paths, including paths throughout the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. You can get just about anywhere on the island along one of these trails. Check out a map of our bike paths Here.

We are looking forward to a great season with lots of fun and shelter from all that snow that keeps falling on our northern neighbors. I can guarantee you'll never have to shovel snow anywhere on our islands! This is the perfect time for you to start your search for island properties. Make this your time to come to the islands. Whether it's a home, condo or homesite, I can help! Call me today!
