If you’ve ever wondered what’s behind some island names in the Sanibel area, you’re likely not alone. The area is rich with history, and some of that history is tied directly to the names of the islands today.
There are a lot of fun places to go in Florida, but one of the coolest might just be Cabbage Key. This almost hidden island sits off the coast of Southwest Florida, and virtually overflows with Old Florida-style appeal.
Tiny Cabbage Key is a 100-acre island located in Pine Island Sound between Bokeelia and Cayo Costa State Park. This remote island is free of paved roads and cars and features a picturesque turn-back-the-clock restaurant and inn that sits atop a 38-foot Indian shell mound.
Hearts are aflutter about now at the thought of Valentine’s Day coming up on February 14. Imagine finding romance in Fort Myers—a beautiful location in southwestern Florida where snow is only in the imagination and where warm temperatures reign supreme. The only thing that melts here are hearts upon seeing puppies, newborn babies and sweethearts holding hands in out-of-the way restaurants and aboard gently moving trains.
