Sanibel Farmer Market

Just when things were (finally) starting to quiet down on the islands…we’re all getting excited again for Sundays (and not just because football’s back)!

The Sanibel Island Farmer’s Market is back for its 14th season from the beginning of October through the end of May...

It has been a stellar year for tourism on Sanibel and Captiva.  Call it “revenge travel” or the “pent-up need for travel,” but Southwest Florida hospitality (hotels, motels, vacation rentals, restaurants) and retail shops had such an influx of travelers (some of them for the...

The Bubble Room exterior

MERRY CHRISTMAS! (But, wait...it's barely September.  What happened to the pumpkin spice?)

We said that because "It's Always Christmas at The Bubble Room," one of Captiva Island's legendary restaurants.  From the first step inside it looks like Christmas from the 1920s to the 1940s exploded...

American Legion

It's been a long wait (partly due to COVID delays), but Sanibel's newest restaurant has finally arrived!

400 Rabbits sounds like that's what's on the menu, but it's not (we'll double-check the menu).  Its a "Mexican Kitchen and Tequilaria" (yes, that's the correct spelling, according...

Sanibel Luminary 2020

Like the Taste of the Islands, Sanibel and Captiva’s Luminary Festival has been reimagined for 2020.

As many recall, the islands celebrate the first weekend of December (Sanibel on Friday night, Captiva on Saturday night) with the official holiday lighting of Periwinkle Way (including luminary...

Turkey on the beach

2020 is starting to look and feel like 1621:

The Pilgrims left for the New World to be away from the monarchy and religious persecution; many celebrities threatened to move to Canada or Australia if Donald Trump was re-elected.

Settlers survived a harsh winter and...
