SWFL Cities Make List Of Most Visited In Florida
Ah, Florida – the land of sunshine, beaches, and theme parks! It’s no wonder that millions of people flock to the Sunshine State each year for a vacation. Living in SWFL, whether it be Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Bonita Springs or Naples, how lucky are we that we live where people vacation!
Even since Hurricane Ian hit SWFL 6 months ago, people have been coming to visit. Yes, on Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel & Captiva there aren’t many hotels that have reopened for visitors yet, but as far as accommodations go, there are plenty of rental houses and plenty of things to do. I went to both Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel over the weekend and while it’ll take a long time before things are back to normal, especially Fort Myers Beach has come a long way a very short time. It was nice to see different trailers and make-shift bars & restaurants set up for people to enjoy a cold beer and a bite to eat. And seeing so many people down there enjoying it was a great sight, offering a bit of normalcy.
