“Nice drive.”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

This road has lots to see. There are many small shops on both sides of the road. Only one chain restaurant on the island that being the Dairy Queen. Love the Dairy Queen. Plenty of restaurants to choose from and because of the speed limit you will not fly by something you like.

“The main drag”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Pretty much everything you could need while on the islands is available on Periwinkle. Shopping of all sorts, restaurants. Nice to have it all in one place, although it was pretty busy even right before busy season. Luckily, a police officer was helping with traffic on one super busy intersection. Beware of the many bicycles and crossings for them! Glad the speed limit is only 35 so you can easily find the places you are looking for and can get into traffic, when having to cross it!

“Lots of Shopping”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

I remember the first time I came hear 35 years ago and me and my 2 girlfriends went from shop to shop and loved it. Some of the stores are still here. Lots of new stores made the ride so much more than we remember. The road is still a nice ride and so well kept. Its so nice to see some things never change.......

“Shopping with a view”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

I love to walk through here and go through all the shops and stop and have a snack. It is landscaped nicely with spots to sit and listen to the fountains.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Periwinkle way is a beautiful roadway. It is very tropical and well maintained. Most of the shops and restaurants are located along this roadway. That being said this is also the main route from the causeway to Captiva so on turn around days and at meal times it can get very congested.
