I recently partnered with Visit Fort Myers and the Paradise Coast to experience all that beautiful Southwest Florida has to offer. Both Anush and I love the Sunshine State and have been several times in the past, but never to the Gulf Coast side. I had heard nothing but amazing things about the beaches there so when this opportunity arose we were so excited for a chance to visit this part of Florida. Paradise is closer than you think with direct flights to Fort Myers via United from San Francisco, LA, and the east coast, too. Looking for easy Spring break plans anyone? Southwest Florida is just a flight away!
We split our time between Captiva Island and Marco Island, but throughout our stay we had a chance to explore Sanibel Island and Naples, which was perfect to give us a taste of what Southwest Florida is all about! In my opinion 3-4 days is the perfect amount of time to visit Southwest Florida. In fact, we actually ended up doing this trip over President’s Day weekend which was the perfect amount of time.
If you are planning for a long weekend getaway to Southwest Florida, here’s a sample itinerary for you!

Fly back home with all the fun memories from Southwest Florida! It is such a gorgeous part of Florida which makes for an easy quick getaway whether from the East or West Coast. Thanks to the direct flights from United!
