Island is the number one travel destination in the world, according to travel guru Arthur Frommer, the mastermind behind Frommer’s guidebooks and budget travel magazine.
Frommer recently ranked his ten favorite places to visit and listed Sanibel first above destinations like Bali and Paris.
Sanibel Island residents are celebrating the top honors from such a respected travel writer.
The island has won many travel awards and high rankings, but this carries special weight because it is Frommer’s personal favorite.
On the web site Frommer noted, “Off the west coast of the Sunshine State, a few miles from Fort Myers, is this idyllic haven of white-sand beaches, condos whose seafront apartments are available for weekly rentals, excellent restaurants, good shopping and most important, the Ding Darling Nature Preserve, visited by thousands of birds of every species, who bask in the sun after diving for fish, and are one of the great natural sights of wildlife in America.”
The other destinations in the top 10 list include:
2) The Island of Bali, in Indonesia
3) Paris, France
4) St. John in the U. S. Virgin Islands
5) Cairo, Egypt
6) Bonaire, one of the “ABC” islands of the southern Caribbean
7) Yachats, the Oregon Coast
8) Chiang Rai, Thailand
9) New York City’s Greenwich Village (and its Off-Broadway theaters)
