The Sanibel Arms Vacation Guide
Sunshine, Sand, and Safety: Why Sanibel Continues to Be a Great Family Vacation Spot
Due to its wonderful weather and plethora of attractions, the state of Florida continues to attract visitors in record numbers. In fact, 87.3 million people spent time in Florida in 2011, making it a top international travel destination that year. But of all the Floridian vacation spots, Sanibel Island is arguably one of the finest, particularly for families with younger children.
If you're looking for a family-friendly vacation spot, our Sanibel Island vacation condos are an excellent choice for your next getaway. Our pristine beaches, fair weather, and wide variety of activities will captivate both the young and the young at heart. Let's take a closer look at why spending your vacation at our condos in Sanibel Island will be fun for the whole family.
When vacationing with little ones, safety should be a primary concern. Sanibel Island was recently named the seventh-safest city in the entire state of Florida! That means that when you stay at our vacation rentals, you can breathe a sigh of relief and actually relax during your trip. We like a more traditional way of life here (most establishments don't stay open late), which suits a lot of families just fine.
Not only do our beachfront condos give you unrivaled access to our quiet beaches, but the surf here is great for kids. The water along the shore is quite shallow and stays that way for hundreds of yards out, so you won't have to worry about anyone being swept away or under. And since the water is warmer than what you'll find up north, even in winter, your family will have every chance to get their feet wet.
Lots of Wildlife
Children and parents alike will be captivated by all of the rich wildlife Sanibel has to offer. From Floridian fish to exotic birds, we've got it all. Sign the kids up for swim school or go on a boat tour to see these animals in their natural habitats. We also have a wildlife refuge with stunning gardens and animals for the kids to see up close while they learn more about the natural world.
Collecting shells is a great activity to do with the kids, and there is no shortage of them here in Sanibel! While you can spend any morning collecting shells on the beach, you can keep the fun going on the rare rainy day, too. Take the kids to the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum to learn more about the kinds of shells they find washed ashore.
