Possible alternatives to Sanibel for people who like nature

Jump to last reply

We just retired, and last year we rented a house on Sanibel for a month (we also stayed a few days in both Cedar Key and Englewood). We liked Sanibel a lot for a long stay because of its lack of high rises, the bike trails, the ability to both visit the sheltered bay side and the ocean beaches, the huge nature preserve etc. We fit in its demographic quite well and were comfortable in the area so decided we'd rent there again this year for a month in Nov. or Dec.

Now, before I make a booking, I thought I'd do some research to see if there are other places we aren't aware of we'd enjoy as much (and that aren't perhaps as pricey a locale). While it is nice, going to the beach isn't at the top of our list as much as being in a place where there are backwaters (intercoastal waterways, bays, preserves, bayous) to kayak and where my husband can fly fish. This year we'll also be taking our boat so we can explore further afield from our rental location. Interesting areas to bike and walk are also important to us. Is Sanibel my best bet, or do you have any other ideas I should think about too? Thanks much.
