Family Vacations on Sanibel Island
Spring Break is always something that brings back memories of school. As a kid, it didn’t matter if it was a holiday or a teacher work-day; any day off of school was celebrated. Spring Break was especially a favorite because it meant family vacations for many people, including myself. Trust me, there is nothing that provides more relief to a Chicago Winter than escaping to somewhere closer to the equator!
With Spring Break here, I decided that I should share my top picks for family vacations on Sanibel Island. I organized the categories the same way that the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce website sorts them and narrowed it down the businesses my family calls favorites.
