Where  better to celebrate the hottest, sunniest months of the year on the most patriotic day of the year. From sunrise to sunset, make the most of July 4, 2016 when you stay with us on the sandy shores of the Gulf of Mexico.This year the Fourth falls on a Monday which gives you a great opportunity for a long weekend for you and your family right on the beach with us!  

Along with beach activities, shopping and dining there are a variety of festive activities to participate in during the holiday weekend, with the boat tours and of course the parade and fireworks!

Adventures in Paradise offers their yearly fireworks cruise which takes you out in the Gulf to enjoy the display put on by the city from the water! Captiva Cruises serves up a similar cruise that is enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Book early as the tours fill up fast.

Join locals and visitors at the annual Fourth of July Parade, which will take place on the main drag, Periwinkle Way between Tarpon Bay Road and Casa Ybel Road starting at 9:30 am. Enjoy music, fun and a festive atmosphere at the red, white and blue parade.

Enjoy an old style holiday parade Sanibel Style with fun floats, music and fun for kids and adults. Stores are open with sales and of course the dining is as usual some of the best that you can find anywhere.  

Once the sun goes down, the evening truly becomes illuminated. Watch an amazing fireworks display over the Gulf of Mexico. You’ll be amazed at the size, scope and beauty of this display; it is considered one of the best in Southwest Florida.

And of course it must be noted that the possession and discharge of fireworks is not permitted on Sanibel. So enjoy your Fourth with us on Sanibel Island!
