A family friend is letting our family use their condo in the Bonita Springs/Ft. Myers area the last week in January and I have been looking all over the internet for vacation ideas which would be pretty inexpensive. This is a special trip for us as we have been feeling a pretty tight budget crunch for a long time and haven’t had a family vacation in many years. Although I’d like to do something special outside of just go to the beach I know we just can’t afford the $100+ per person price tag for most of the fun activities/tours I see recommended. We will be a group of 4 adults staying from 1/26-2/3.
So far we plan on stopping by the corkscrew sanctuary, going over to Sanibel for a some shelling and spending a day at barefoot beach. Other than that we are totally open to ideas. Can anyone recommend any other activities that are on the cheaper side or perhaps a places to locate discounts/coupons?
We do have our car and are happy to travel anywhere around southwest Florida. I would say our interest would be towards animals/nature and family fun type activities. Due to our economic situation restaurants are probably out of the question but we would be potentially interested in something for one meal if someone felt it was really worth the price/experience.
Additionally the weather report seems to be a bit chillier than I had hoped. Is it still comfortable enough to go to the beaches and swim at this time of year?
