One of the top attractions for visitors to our Islands is the Francis P. Bailey, Jr. Visitor Center at the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce. The Visitor Center is highly ranked on Trip Advisor for a “must-do” stop, especially to get helpful ideas for each and every stay. These two reviews are just a sampling of the positive comments about the friendly staff and the wealth of information to be found there.
Must stop for ideas
The staff at the visitor center were so helpful, the building has many maps and an interactive kiosk to search for things to do and a great visual of the islands. So glad we stopped! Date of experience: March 2019
Stop in before you go anywhere
The friendly staff had all kinds of information to share. From shelling to the lighthouse, where to stay, etc. they were very helpful, even gave information I didn’t think about asking. Great team. Date of experience: February 2019
