Who needs the bitter cold of Manhattan when you can celebrate New Year’s Eve in “Times Square” with the warm balmy breezes of Southwest Florida?
Just a tad southeast from Sanibel is the “Times Square” area of nearby Fort Myers Beach. Their New Year’s Eve celebration starts around noon with live music, food and festivities, culminating in a ball drop and fireworks at midnight.
It’s approximately a half-hour drive to enjoy all the merriment in person, but many of our guests opt to simply watch the fireworks at night from our very own Ocean’s Reach beach. After all, your beach chair is the best seat in the house!
