While you visit Bonita Springs, make sure you take the short drive over to Estero, too. It’s a lot newer than Bonita Springs and it’s home to the historic Koreshan State Park, Miromar Outlets open-air shopping center, design center and a handful of really great dining options. The Koreshan State Park has an interesting history and if you visit the home of Cyrus Teed’s former followers, you can see how they used to live. The Koreshans believed that the Earth was hollow and they also thought they would live forever. There are guided tours, haunted walks during Halloween, a farmers market, and kayaking and hiking trails.
The Barefoot Beach Preserve and Hickory Island beaches aren’t far from Bonita Springs vacation rentals, either. Grab your morning coffee and take a walk on the beach and go back later with your kids and enjoy a warm, sunny beach day. If you’d rather be out on the water in Estero Bay, Estero and Bonita Springs are home to a variety of water sport rental places, whether you’re looking to go boating or do something more low-key like canoeing or jet skiing.
Between Estero and Bonita Springs, there is always something to do for every type of vacation and each member of the group. What you decide to do during your vacation in paradise is up to you. If you want, you can just choose to relax in your Bonita Springs vacation rental and enjoy Southwest Florida’s slower pace and laid-back lifestyle. Many Royal Shell rentals are in gated communities that are home to on-site restaurants, golf courses, tennis courts, pools and state-of-the-art fitness centers. So, if you don’t want to leave, you don’t have to! How you spend your Bonita Springs vacation is entirely up to you.
