Celebrate mom in style with a Fort Myers Beach vacation this Mother’s Day! If gulf breezes are the way to her heart, then May is the perfect time for a special getaway. Honor her and all she does for the family with a beach gathering or an exclusive mother-daughter trip! We have some great ideas to make memories on your spring vacation.
Decide in advance which features are important to you in a vacation rental. Some important considerations are location, and if you’d prefer a beachfront property or vacation rental with a pool to stay cool. Choose amenities that will help mom enjoy the water and the sunshine when you’re not out-and-about.
Mother’s Day weekend would not be complete without treating mom to a special meal. Take a break from meal prep and stop by Mom’s (try their famous Cuban sandwich) or head to Tuckaway’s Island Café for a quick bite. Have a casual weekend breakfast or delicious shrimp salad for lunch right on the beach at The Salty Crab.
Sip a “Bellini Tini” and enjoy traditional and Caribbean-flaired dishes with mom at Bayfront Bistro. This brightly colored restaurant has the perfect ambiance for your dinner out. Whatever you’re in the mood for, you will find great dining options in Fort Myers Beach!
For a great view and a delicious meal, try Flipper’s on The Bay. This great restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. No trip to FMB is complete without great seafood, and Dixie Fish Company is always a hit!
If mom likes live music, then don’t miss Doc Ford’s, which boasts the best waterfront dining in FMB. Catch a cool evening and dine alfresco on the deck! Fine dining with a view is fantastic at the Fresh Catch Bistro, especially at sunset! Call ahead or secure reservations online if possible, to ensure your party can be seated at just the right time.Make dinner plans at Fresh Catch Bistro (photo courtesy of their Facebook page).
