We revel this time of year at Beach Shell Inn on Fort Myers Beach, with the breezier days, cooler evenings, and the holiday spirit filling the air. Our staff and guests all walk with an extra joy in their steps as twinkling lights, shopping for the perfect gifts and spending quality time with family and friends bring the meaning of the season to life.
New Year’s on Fort Myers Beach serves up extra excitement, as we celebrate the birth of a new year and the birthday of Fort Myers Beach! The party takes place in Times Square. That’s right, we have one here in sunny southwest Florida, too. The birthday party starts at noon and includes live music and birthday cake. This family fun event will certainly get everyone’s spirits up and ready for the night of celebration that begins at 7 p.m with more live bands, great food and drink specials, a ball drop and fireworks at the stroke of midnight. Trolley service will run free of charge, taking attendees to Estero Island from off-island parking. Parking is free.
Alternatively, you could book a ride upon the Fort Myers Princess for their annual New Year’s Eve Gala Cruise. Dance beneath a blanket of stars with great DJ entertainment. Enjoy an open bar, party favors, noisemakers, hats and the most memorable cruise through the waters surrounding Sanibel Island, San Carlos Bay, Caloosahatchee River and the Gulf of Mexico. Reservations required. Fort Myers Princess, 645 Old San Carlos Blvd., Fort Myers Beach. www.fortmyersprincess.net, or call 239-765-8500.
We’re ready to welcome you and hope you’ll join us in ringing in 2017!
