Not to stereotype, but what woman on vacation doesn't want to include a little recreational shopping?
Periwinkle Place is the "granddaddy" of Sanibel Shopping. More than two dozen shops - the only national chain is Chico's, which had its first store here. The rest are locally owned stores with the kind of island eclectic merchandise you wom't find on the mainland.
The grounds are 1400 acres of boardwalks, paths, greenery, and a playground for kids. Plenty of shopping too., in the front off of the Periwinkle Way entrance and in the back. If shopping is on your agenda, Periwinkle Place is pleasant place to do it.
Periwinkle Place was selected by the Lee County Visitors and Convention Bureau as both Sanibel’s top shopping destination, and as one of Lee County's top attractions. Trip Advisor
