Take a trip to Sanibel Island if you like pretty sunsets and luxurious resorts.
Venture out of the city with trips to Fort Myers (Edison and Ford Winter Estates, Fort Myers River District, & more), Cape Coral (Wicked Dolphin Rum Distillery & Cape Coral) and Punta Gorda (Peace River Wildlife Center, Fishermen's Village, & more). And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, browse the collection at Sanibel Public Library, visit a coastal fixture at Sanibel Island Lighthouse, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Captiva Beach.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Southwest Florida International Airport, Sarasota Bradenton International Airport and Lakeland Linder International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 28°C in January, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
