Summer vacation looks a bit different this year so we're helping you embrace the STAY-cation!

We're all trying to stay closer to home this year and while that might mean your typical summer vacation was canceled, it doesn't mean there's no way to enjoy the summer. In Southwest Florida, there are many hotels and resorts to choose from for sunset gazing, boating/kayaking, beach walks, hunting for seashells, and more. Florida residents will often get a discount during the summer "off-season." We've compiled a list of staycation spots within driving distance of Southwest Florida to get you inspired.

Hotels and Resorts

Diamond Head Beach Resort in Fort Myers Beach


Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Estero
