From Sea to Shining Sea on "Alligator Alley"
You journey will take you across the Everglades on Alligator Alley, to Fort Myers. You will see the winter homes of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, with an included public tour of the estate's museum and grounds. You may tour with an on-site guide, or take an audio tour on your own. After our visit, we will stop for lunch at a place of your choosing (not included). Then, we will continue to Sanibel Island for a relaxing visit to the beach. This are is famous for shell collecting, as many of them wash up on the beach each day. Collect as many as you like, and bring them back with you! This trip is designed to be relaxing, with time to explore and enjoy the scenic areas along the way. What will you do with all those seashells?
We will be driving across Interstate-75, known as "Alligator Alley", to Fort Myers. On arrival, you will tour the winter homes of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, either by an estate guide, or an audio tour on your own (included). We will stop at a restaurant of your choosing for a meal (not included). After lunch, we will continue to Sanibel Island, for time at the beach and shell collecting. (Jet Ski rentals are available nearby, but not included). The whole idea is to get away from it all, and relax as you explore the Gulf Coast.
