In early June my wife and I are flying into RSW and renting a car. We will be heading to Sanibel Island for a few days. Anything in the area we should check out?

I've got a buddy that runs tours down to Wooten's in the Everglades.

Airboat ride, swamp buggy ride, gators, etc...

Kinda touristy but that's what visitors like.

@AZNetEng was here and took the tour. They liked it.

Let me know...I'll meet up for a beer.

Bring a bottle of Skin So Soft, the no-see-ums are brutal.

Brother Malbec,

You'll be "checking out" Lots of traffic. Lots of sitting in the car and waiting. Last time I went to Sanibel, I was stuck on the bridge for an hour while on the way back. (Once traffic started moving again) I could see no reason at all why there was such a back up. The guys in South Florida can have all that traffic. I hate it!

Sanibel is a quiet kind of place. When I stay down there I am just eating good food and relaxing
around the pool or out at the beach.

We just got home from staying in that area for a week.

Took an airboat ride and walked though the connected gator farm.  
We went to the Sanibel public beach for a few hours
Wife went on a chartered shelling tour.  Not my thing but she loved it.
Had lunch on Marco Island and shopped a little bit
Hung out at the Naples beach by our hotel

We had our 19 year old son with us so we didn't hit any local bars in the evening.

Sanibel is beautiful. We loved visiting there and walked all over the place. Lots of Dolphins off the shore!
