Hi there ~ We are planning a trip in May and need a little input.
Original plans.....travel Sunday before Memorial Day, return home Sunday of Memorial day weekend. Planned 3 nights at Jensens
Gulfside...Honeymoon (its not :)) or On the Beach than rest of trip move to Fort Myers Beach.
Dilema......Jensens wants a 4 night stay. Is 4 nights too long on Captiva? Don't want to feel...."been there done that."
Is 3 nights on FMB too short, just enough?
Love beach time, but just cannot lay in the sun all day like I used to.
Need to be able to wander around a bit.
Looking for nice beach time with some little day trips, Cabbage Key,
Sanibel etc and some night time fun. Nothing big (like in Key West, action all of the time) but some night life until at last midnight or so, guy with a guitar on a stool and cocktails. Very much like being able to walk places....Green Flash, Mucky Duck seem to fit this if I am correct. Don't want to be where everything closes up at 9.
What is FMB like at that time of the year/ Memorial Day weekend? BF was there in August and he said it was very quiet...2 bars open. I would think May would be busier?
He was at Diamondhead and liked it. Thinking of staying there or Casa Playa....any comments appreciated.
Guess I thought the original plan was good. 3 days of nice and mellow at Captiva, move to FMB for a little more of the weekend action/fun. He likes bigger hotels, I like small places. Trying to balance it all!
We could add on a day and go home on Memorial Day but its nice to have that extra day when you get home to.
Had also thought about staying at Tween Waters but liked that Jensens was on the water and within walking distance to some places to eat/drink. Also heard Tween Waters rooms were a bit run down.
Thanks for any input, comments and direction from anyone!
