  • Great place to walk, take a walk and see typical business of this beautiful island. There are nice shops of gifts and objects made with snails.

  • You can find everything you need for your trip from clothing to groceries along this busy, but beautiful street. So many shops to chose from and all unique! 
  • What a great "way" to travel. There are many great places to stop and eat, buy souvenirs and to just to window shop!

  • Local seashells jewelry & mermaid are sold in this vintage Sanibel Consignment Shop! A yearly must visit for snowbirds tourists residents. Best island values can be found with new inventory coming in daily!
  • Paul and everyone at this shop are just the best. On this visit we overheard that the property has/would be sold so if you've been meaning to visit - get there soon!
