Arthur Frommer, the renowned founder of Frommer's Travel Guides, has ranked Sanibel Island #1 as his favorite place in the world to travel, describing Sanibel as, "Off the west coast of the Sunshine State, a few miles from Ft. 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."

When acknowledging Frommer's designation Sanibel City Manager Judie Zimomra stated, "Per Art Frommer, the best place in the world to visit is Sanibel Island, but for those of us who live here it is just a great place to call home."
