Are you looking for a good Christmas gift to surprise you family with this year? Why not book a 2 Bedroom Condo to spend your Christmas vacation in. Christmas time on Sanibel Island is a wonderful time to come and visit with the family. While many people in the north are dealing with cold weather and snow, here you will be enjoying the warm weather. Many families love to come to Florida during the holiday season because of how beautiful and special this time of the year is. Let’s look at why you should spend Christmas vacation on Sanibel Island this year.

Trade Snow Days for Beach Days

If you happen to live in the north where the streets are covered in snow and ice, you will find the weather in Florida to be perfect. Here trade your snow days for beach days. Who wouldn’t want to spend the day soaking up the sun and possibly getting a small tan while on vacation? With the temperatures in the high 70’s, you and your family can enjoy a few days on the beach. Spend the day in shorts and a t-shirt and the evening in a pair of jeans while you enjoy a night out.

Festive Boats & Palm Trees

Here on Sanibel Island we like to decorate our boats. You and the family can go look at the Christmas lights around the island as well as the festive boats. Many of the local boat owners like to deck their boats out with holiday cheer. You and your family can go see several boat parades and you will be able to walk around the marinas to see the boats light up the water. And when you have seen the beautifully decorated boats, head over to several local neighborhoods. You will be able to see the beautiful lights decorating the palm trees. Sanibel Island takes decorating for the holiday season serious every year!

The Ghosts of Christmas Past

If you are looking for a fun holiday event to enjoy with the kids, head on over to Fort Myers. Here you will be able to visit the Edison & Ford Winter Estates Holiday Nights. Both Thomas Edison and Henry Ford had winter estates in Fort Myers. From now until December 30th at 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm, you and your family can enjoy live music, food, drinks and Santa.

Spend Thanksgiving in Sanibel This Year

Make a new tradition this year with the family and spend your Thanksgiving holiday in Sanibel. The first of November marks the start of the holiday season, where everyone is making their holiday plans and finding out whose house Thanksgiving will be at. Instead of going to someone’s home for Thanksgiving this year, make plans to come stay in a condo or townhouse vacation rental. Soon after Thanksgiving, Christmas music will play on the radio as people go shopping on Black Friday. There are plenty of things you and your family can do while you vacation here for the holidays.

Spend Time with Family

When you think of Thanksgiving, you think of spending as much quality time with your family. A lot of families have made coming to Sanibel Island a tradition each year for Thanksgiving because if you are staying in one of our vacation rentals, there is plenty of space for the whole family. Staying home can be stressful because we all want our homes to be in perfect condition which only causes us to stress more. When you spend a holiday in Sanibel, it’s more relaxing and you will want to spend more time with the ones you love. Get the whole family involved in cooking Thanksgiving dinner or go out to eat instead. It will be completely up to you on how you’d like to spend you day with the family.

Beautiful Weather

The weather in Sanibel is beautiful during the fall months. With the highs normally around 81 degrees, who wouldn’t want to spend the holidays there? While the weather isn’t as warm as it is in the summer time, it sure makes for a wonderful day to spend it on the beach with the family. If you want to spend the day soaking up the rays on the beach instead of worrying about Thanksgiving dinner, go ahead. It’s your holiday vacation and you can do what you want to. Spend the evening collecting seashells with the family and kids and make it a vacation that you will remember for years to come.

Gorgeous Views

Even during the off-season, Sanibel is nothing but beautiful to visit. Spending Thanksgiving watching the waves roll in and out or watching the sunset with your loved ones. You may even happen to see some dolphins in the ocean as they folic along or you may see people taking pictures on the beach to use as their Christmas cards. Take a nice long walk while watching the sunset or have your family’s pictures taken on the beach. There is a ton of things you can enjoy while you vacation with us.

Black Friday

After Thanksgiving, while the Christmas music fills the air, go shop until you drop at the Sanibel Outlets. We know that most everyone likes to make sure they get the best deals for Christmas shopping. While you can find some pretty amazing deals at the outlets, you can also find some great deals at some of the local shops too. Purchasing something from one of the local stores or artists can make some of the best gifts to give. Sanibel is known for having some of the best gifts to give to others during the holidays or to take home as a souvenir. Don’t miss out on any of the deals this year!
