Lot's of great shops and restaurants. Many unique to Sanibel - i.e. Shiny Objects. Traffic can be an issue during high season.

This is one of the most unique strips in America. There are bike paths all over the Island that leads you to this road. Its something you will never forget.

There are a lot of shops and places to eat. Great variety of things to do for all ages! Stores have odd closing times so be sure to check before you go. I would recommend checking it out.
