Busiest Area

A couple in our 50's, we will be spending a week here next year (September). We like walking, Early mornings on the beach. Good casual dining - not fine dining.. Easygoing bars to watch the game. Oh, we like to drink. And live music.

Fort Myers Beach Fla fit the bill for us but Clearwater was too small and too quiet.

Do you think around Coligny will be best for us? And is Palmetto Dunes too far out/too quiet?

There's probably more activity in the Coligny area, but PD is also near lots activities, both in the plantation itself (hotels with nightly music, restaurants) as well as across the road in Shelter Cove. Either would work, although more bars in the Coligny area. September is a lower tourist time, so crowds shouldn't be a big issue either place.

I agree with Bearsfan as well. I have stayed in both areas and I would say the North Forest Beach area/Coligny area would be better if being walking distance to bars/restaurants etc was important to you.

Thanks Bearsfan and Can_amgirl. Plenty of condos for rent in both areas at that time of year. Probably go for North Forest Beach but not writing PD off just yet

Speaking from someone who grew up at the Jersey Shore we love Palmetto Dunes and the quiet. We visit Coligny during off times only to avoid the tourist feel. Please note we have been visiting HH for the past 11 yrs. There is a reason we drive 12 hours. Absolutely love it there.

We rent in Palmetto Dunes and have used The Vacation Company. They have been excellent to work with.
