If you are fortunate enough to have more than 7 nights to spend on vacation, there are many great places to visit near North Captiva. Fort Myers has lots of attractions including the Ford Edison Winter estates, the River District in downtown Ft. Myers and nearby Naples with the Zoo and Botanical Gardens. And don't forget Spring Training, with Ft. Myers hosting both the Twins and Red Sox. If you want to travel further afield, Tampa is 2 hours away, and the East Coast towns of Ft. Lauderdale, Delray Beach, Palm Beach and Jupiter are less than 2 1/2 hours drive. How about Cuba? If it's a place you have always wanted to visit, drive to Ft. Lauderdale airport and take a quick 46 minute flight to Havana. You will need a little more advance planning for that one, but I can tell you it's a trip you won't forget. We visited in January 2017 and are planning a return this winter.
