Now’s the time to book your summer vacation at Sanibel Arms West.

School is out.

Summer is rolling in.

Soon, it will be July, the best summer month of all to vacation on Sanibel Island. Sanibel Arms West has some great units available in July. Even so, wise vacationers book now.

Of course, one of the highlights of July is the festivities surrounding Independence Day. The Annual Fourth of July Fireworks Extravaganza on Sanibel takes place Wednesday, July 4th. This is a true community event, made possible under the auspices of the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce, by the generosity and public spirit of several Sanibel-Captiva businesses and individuals.

Then, there is the annual Fourth of July Parade along Sanibel’s Periwinkle Way. This is a classic, small-town, home-town parade, notable for the patriotic spirit of its participants and spectators.

As might be expected, Fourth of July week is very popular and accommodations fill up rapidly. It is time to book you reservations now.
Extending the Independence Day activities are BIG Arts community theater performances of Neil Simon’s “The Star-Spangled Girl” at the Herb Strauss Theater. Opening night is July 5, with further performances July 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21. Curtain time is 8 PM.
The play, set in 60s, is a story of a love triangle mixed with politics. Andy and Norman are radical liberals struggling to make a living working on their magazine, Fallout. Sophie is an all-American girl who moves into the apartment next door. Norman immediately falls in love with Sophie and makes Andy hire her at the magazine. When Sophie falls in love with Andy, the magazine and the men’s friendship are threatened.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for children under 17 and available at BIGArts on Sanibel Island.

The one thing about Sanibel that knows no season is the beach. It is consistently ranked one of the top beaches in the country, with Florida’s finest shelling. It all will be waiting for you here, just steps from your Sanibel Arms West condominium rental. So, make your reservations now, while the selection is still good. And spend July with us, at Sanibel Arms West.
