“Paddle the calm waters to follow in the wake of the people of the Calusa tribes. Get inspired at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates. Take time to go fishing, shelling, birding or island hopping and fully appreciate this natural haven. Marvel at dolphins jumping in the rolling waves and pelicans diving in the surf for breakfast. Spot endangered West Indian manatees meandering through the mangrove-lined back bays and estuaries.”
Add to your bucket list by reading “100 Things to Do in Fort Myers & Sanibel Before Your Die,” featuring dozens of known and not-so-known things to do on Sanibel and Captiva, as well as surrounding areas.
Author Nancy Hamilton includes “insider information” on not only our renowned beaches, waterways and recreational activities, but also historic and offbeat locales, as well.
The areas covered include: Sanibel and Captiva, Fort Myers Beach, Fort Myers, Bonita Springs and Estero, Cape Coral, Pine Island and Matlacha, Boca Grande, and more than 100 coastal islands off the mainland, along with North Fort Myers and the inland communities.
“100 Things to Do in Fort Myers & Sanibel Before You Die” is a culmination of Hamilton’s 28 years worth of research and fun while she worked at The Chamber of Southwest Florida and the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau. A journalism graduate from Michigan State University, Hamilton moved to the Fort Myers area for a position at the Naples Daily News. She currently works in public relations.
Hamilton will talk about her book on Feb. 6 from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Captiva Memorial Library (11560 Captiva Lane). There will be a question-and-answer session, and copies of the book will be available.
