When the rain starts to drizzle or the sun starts to set, heading inland gives you an opportunity to explore the shopping hubs of The Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel, Florida. Offering everything from high-end furnishings to brand name clothes, try these outlets on for size.
Almost 200 stores and restaurants – not to mention three koi ponds – make up this sophisticated outdoor mall, with options to satisfy any shopping fiend’s craving for saving. And even though there are so many outlets, getting around is an absolute breeze – thanks to the complimentary shuttle that’ll ferry you from one stop to another.
On Saturdays and Sundays, you can enjoy live entertainment. Plus, keep an eye out for family-friendly events throughout the year.
Golf gear, diamond jewelry, kids’ clothes and more. That’s what you’ll find at this nearly 50-store retail hub, with no shortage of brand names. Conveniently situated at the edge of Fort Myers, it’s the perfect place to stop.
And although this brightly colored outlet mall doesn’t have a food court of its own, it’s extremely close to a variety of restaurants – local and chain alike.
On the hunt for more? Just south of Fort Myers, Coconut Point Mall brings you all the big names, including Apple, Super Target and Dillard’s. You can indulge in a full makeover at ULTA Beauty or grab some grub at one of the many restaurants while store hopping around this elegant-looking outdoor shopping area.
Stop by Gulf Coast Town Center to visit HomeGoods, Ross Dress for Less, JC Penney and more. Then, when you work up an appetite, you’re sure to satisfy it at one of the many surrounding restaurants. Outback Steakhouse, Bar Louie, P.F. Chang’s and Cold Stone Creamery are just a few.
Maybe the true purpose of your shopping excursion lies in finding something you won’t see anywhere else. If that’s the case, you can’t miss The Franklin Shops on First Street. In Fort Myers’ historic downtown river district, explore one hundred unique shops in an elegant two-story emporium of fashion, artwork, accessories and gifts – where the word “souvenir” won’t even begin to describe what you’ll bring home.
