family with 4 (3yr-9yrs) needs advice for Jan vaca

We will be staying for 1 week at the Neptune Inn. Wondering about family friendly places to eat, babysitting services, places to check out, sunset cruise (if weather cooperates), manatee tours ect. Any advice would be appreciated.

All restaurants on FMB are kid friendly, there is a nice water park in Naples

http://www.napleswaterpark.com/

and also the Naples Zoo

http://www.caribbeangardens.com/

for a sunset cruise or dolphin cruise

http://fortmyersprincess.com/

and there is also a pirate cruise the kids would enjoy

http://www.piecesofeight.com/

or you can rent a pontoon from Fishtale Marina and cruise the back bays you will probably see dolphins and much wildlife....and check out lovers key, beautiful at the southend of the Island.

A day trip to Sanibel would also be nice!

Have a great time!

I think your children will really enjoy the Naples Zoo. Time Sq. usually has entertainters and they are very child friendly .If your 9 yr. old is a girl she may enjoy having her hair braided.There is also a mini golf course on San Carlos Blvd.

We visit Fort Meyers with our kids every 2 years in Feb.

We have done the Naples Zoo many times. It is small but the kids loved it.

Try Balboa Park. There is a train ride, walking trails, those bikes that up to 6 people can ride (lots of fun) the play ground is great and free. If it is warm enough there is a couple of splash pads. Your have to pay for parking so bring coins and dollar bills. The train and the bikes cost money but the rest is free. we go there every year.

There are lots of mini golfs to try

we go to Fort Myers beach a couple times. If you get there before 9 we find you can get parking in the lots on the beach you pay a machine. there are also lots within walking distance. The earlier you cross the bridge the less traffic

The kids like the imaginaium too. It is not really big, but your kids are young enough :)

You must go to lakes park too - really nice walks, bike rental, boat rental, park with water jets/fountains, miniature train, ice cream. It's great for the little ones
