Karaoke FridayLa Cabana
This place is very busy - there’s only a few restaurants in the whole area. plan accordingly. They have 3 tables in the outside patio that are for 4 people plus a dog. They have more tables for bigger parties. food was good, service was really good. and we totally enjoyed the karaoke which featured lots of regulars.
Would give it a zero if I couldEstero Bay Preserve State Park
Took the yellow trail. The trail starts out well marked but then markings disappear just as you enter the more natural areas. large amounts of water with freaky mini crabs that look like cockroaches. When you finally get to higher ground the trail broke in three directions with no trail markers. I was being attacked by huge flies and realized how dangerous this was for both me and my dog. I turned around and got the hell out of there! would never go back.
Tiny white sand beach close to bridgeLighthouse Beach Park
if you don’t want to make a long trip through the island this was a good alternative. it’s small and lots of boats to the left of the dock, but had bathrooms and a rinsing station.
What beach??Causeway Islands Park
it’s a strip of dirt with a touch of sand next to the highway. after removing three dead fish heads left by fishermen we left.
Florida gemBowman's Beach
gorgeous beach with lots of open space. plenty of amenities. (bathrooms, rinsing stations, lots of parking) worth the trip.
Local’s spotBark n Play Dog Park
While on vacation we visited on a Monday at 9:30. It was very busy with many locals congregating. The water, washing station and hand sanitizer next to the poop droop were very nice features. I would have rated the park higher except no one was observing the weight guidelines. Very large dogs 75lb+ in the 20-40 lb area since the owners were all socializing. Our 25 lb dog was pushed around a lot (he wasn’t intimidated) but they were getting pretty rough and he was one third their size. The owners really were not paying much attention since it was their social hour as much as their pets
Go early and avoid weekendsLee County Dog Beach
Great secluded space to let dogs run off leash gets super crowded by boaters after noon. More dogs and more untended dogs the later you go.
