Spring Break Destinations Southwest Florida

With spring break coming up I wanted to provide you with hot destination areas to visit for something fun to do. Spring Break does not necessarily mean diving into a club or bar. Yes, clubs are definitely a fun spot to be at during spring break but it does not have to be a place to go to all the time. I hope you find something fun on my list.

  • Boca Grande- Considered the jewels of Southwest Florida
    Located on Gasparilla Island is just off the outer island of Fort Myers. This island is accessible by car over the Boca Grande Swing Bridge or boat. The miles of white sand and tasty restaurants are just some of the few things this island has. You can also do some tarpon fishing, ride a bike or golf cart around. Definitely, a worthy place to check out.  
  • Bonita Springs – Bonita Springs is named for a medicinal spring on Old Highway 41 that the local Indians believed could heal the sick. Today, Bonita Springs is a beautiful, area of Southwest Florida and is called Gateway to the Gulf of Mexico because its sugar-white, sand beaches, and calm Gulf waters are easily accessible from Interstate 75. It’s located near Estero and is between Fort Myers to the north and Naples to the south. You can go boating, fishing kayaking, and paddleboarding. There are multiple golf courses one can play on. If you are into shopping there is outdoor malls, restaurants, boutiques, salons and so forth.
  • Port Charlotte – A small but fun little town in the center of Charlotte County considered as one of the best affordable places to visit on vacation. Charlotte County offers parks, places to go fishing, golfing, shelling, and boating. While walking along the beach look for shiny black triangles as they are fossilized shark teeth dating back between 4 and 5million years ago. You can rent or bring your own snow shovel which is a basket at the end of a handle used to scoop and sift the sand to collect them. Visani restaurant and comedy club offers great entertainment with food, music and lots of laughs.
  • Naples – Whether you are a shell collector, historian, gardener, nature enthusiast there is something here for everyone. There are many nature attractions to visit such as the Naples Zoo and the nature center. You can take a walk on the Naples pier and/or enjoy the Naples nightlife visiting various clubs and bars.

No matter where you go for Spring Break you should always make sure you vehicle is in good shape. Stop by a local dealer such as Tamiami Ford to get maintence done such as an oil change.
