Top 5 Kid-Friendly Family Activities 

It’s time to plan your annual family activities while staying with Kingfisher Vacations before the holidays arrive! Wouldn’t it be great to share stories with your loved ones about how you took a relaxing weekend getaway to the Florida’s Gulf Coast? During your family trips, you may want to hop on Google and search “family activities near me;” you’ll come to find that there are many. Let us offer a little guidance as your last-minute family trips should be to Sanibel and Captiva Island, Florida.

1. The Bubble Room

One of our favorite kid-friendly restaurants in Florida is The Bubble Room. No matter your age, you’ll love that it’s Christmas every day at The Bubble Room in Captiva Island, Florida. The restaurant features show-stopping desserts, running toy trains on display, Christmas lights overhead, and fish tanks among many surprising reasons to smile.

2. Go Shelling 

Shelling in Florida has become so popular that it’s even coined the name “Sanibel Stoop” by the locals. Your family will love beachcombing these Sanibel Island beaches to see who can find the most interesting or colorful shell! To learn more about the top three Captiva and Sanibel Island beaches for shelling during your Florida trips, check out our Sanibel Stoop shelling guide online.

3. Learn about Wildlife

There’s a 7,600-acre wildlife refuge on Sanibel Island, Florida, known as the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. Check out the local habitat to learn more about the unique Florida ecosystem, or, better yet take the Wildlife Refuge Tram Tour with Tarpon Bay Explorers. Tarpon Bay Explorers features many tours including the Kayak Trail Tour where you may just find a manatee under your kayak while paddling through the mangroves! 

4. Family Bike Ride 

Sanibel Island, Florida, has 22 miles of paved trails, so you’re able to go anywhere on the island on your bike. Billy’s Bike Rentals provides bike deliveries to your Sanibel and Captiva Island rentals for a small fee. Riding bicycles with your family on the island will be one of your favorite Florida activities to tell your friends about back home.

5. Get Ice Cream 

The best part about the Love Boat Ice Cream shop is that they always give you too much ice cream for the size that you ordered! With over 85 flavors, including unique creations like Yellow Fudge Cake and classic favorites like Cookies and Cream, how can you go wrong? Dishing up something for every palate, you’ll love to mix and match, and they even have sugar-free options! 

Private Family Florida Vacations

Now that you have a list of fun Florida activities, you won’t have to waste time searching for “family activities near me” during your family trips! Make life-lasting memories with your loved ones by taking the time to get out of town, even if it’s just for a relaxing weekend getaway. We provide a variety of properties that include private pools, bay views, spacious decks, and so many other excellent amenities.
