While most of the country is pushing 100-something degrees this summer, the great Sunshine State of Florida has been feeling cool with highs temps in the 80s and 90s. Over on the coast, such as in Southwest Florida, enjoy the tropical breezes off the Gulf of Mexico which makes it feel a little cooler than in Florida’s interior.
If Southwest Florida sounds like your kind of vacation, be sure to order the free Traveler’s Guide to Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel from Lonely Planet. The Fort Myers and Sanibel area is internationally recognized for shelling, winter home of inventor Thomas Edison and spring training home of the Boston Red Sox but also home to other attractions, activities and events.
