1.  Sanibel Island, Florida

You can find Sanibel Island not too far off the coast of Florida. There you will discover surprisingly uncrowded, clean beaches, and lush, green tropical foliage. It is reputed to be the US’ “most bike-friendly.” There are 25 miles o trails perfect for bicycling.

You can stop off at different historic landmarks and nature preserves on the way. More interestingly, this isle is known as the “seashell capital of the world” because o its unusual geography. Both residents and vacationers can be found “shelling” on the beaches day and night.

The quaint Castaways Cottages is reportedly a great place to wind down too. These accommodations are nestled on the peaceful strip of land separating the Pine Island Sound and the listening Gulf of Mexico. Guests may choose from cozy one, two, or three-bedroom cottages.
