Warm-Weather Getaways: 7 Sizzling Beaches
Sanibel and Captiva, Florida: A Shell of a Time
The islands of Sanibel and Captiva, along Florida's southwest coast, are a beachcomber's dream, covered in glistening maritime trinkets—400-plus varieties of swirly snail shells, delicate pink clamshells, sand dollars and more. You won't find streets lined with high rises, strip malls and fast food here. Instead, enjoy the distinctly mellow Floridian vibe, embraced by locals and visitors alike, all the warm winter long (800/237-6444; FortMyersSanibel.com).
