(Apologies to Meat Loaf for that title.)
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce issued a new promotion, #paradisecanwait . While Sanibel cannot accept any arrivals during the month of April, we know there will come a day when "social distancing" WILL be a distant memory. Those that had upcoming reservations have mostly rescheduled, and we imagine that there will be plenty of new visitors who are looking to travel almost immediately after restrictions are removed.
Until that day comes, we'd like to help bring some of Paradise to you, or at least your computer. We have been posting several videos on our Facebook page (Sanibel Holiday Vacation Rentals) on sunsets, sunrises, and of course shells!
We've also heard about the "Ding" Darling Refuge using social media to help bring Florida nature to those who were hoping to see it in person. This is also good for those homeschooling with projects and activities to download. Visitors can go to the Refuge's website or follow #DingAtHome. They also have 30 second Refuge on their Facebook page with #DailyDoseofDing
If you just need a beach fix, be sure to visit the Chamber of Commerce's site for live webcams at various locations.
We hope to see all of you sooner rather than later. Be sure to check the City of Sanibel's website (mysanibel.com) for updates on the island's status, then come back to Sanibel Holiday to Book Direct and Save. Above all else, we hope you will stay safe and don't forget to wash your hands!
