Florida has an abundance of cruise-ins. A newly formed cruise-in is being held at the Shell Factory and Nature Park, 2787 North Tamiami Trail, N. Ft Myers, FL once a month from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Come out and see a variety of cars and trucks on display.

You can do some shopping at the Shell Factory retail store and visit their different museums. They close at 6:00 p.m., so be sure to do the shopping before you walk through the cruise-in. The web site is: They have seashells, sharks teeth, souvenirs, t-shirts and even a Christmas shop, plus many more items on sale and on display. Or you can have some dinner at Captain Fishbones. See their menu at: What a neat place to visit with the many fish and sea life on the walls. They also have an outside bar where you can have a beer or a fruity tropical drink.
