What we're about

I am so proud to be a part of this community! We live in PARADISE... and I want to explore every part of it. We live where people come when they want to go on vacation. Let's explore Lee County together.... every day can be a vacation when you live in paradise.

I want to vacation in my own back yard! I am looking for other fun-minded people to join in the experience. We will go to restaurants, attractions and clubs. We will attend events, concerts and sporting events. If there is something fun to do in Lee County, let's do it! Life is too short to not take advantage of every day!

Ding Darling Nature Cruise, Lunch (and maybe Tram Tour)

Tarpon Bay Explorers

Hi Friends! I thought it would be fun to spend the day at Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. The day will start with a nature cruise (including a visit to the aquarium & touch tanks). We will meet at 10:30 for an 11:00 departure. The cruise is 1.5 hours and costs $33.75 after tax. Tickets can be purchased at: https://tarponbayexplorers.com/tour/nature-sealife-cruise/ The cruise provider is enforcing social distancing, so the cruise will be limited to the first 24 people to pay (1/2 their normal capacity). The cruise is open to the public, so please get your tickets as soon as possible. Masks are required when walking to the boat, but can be removed once seated. We will then have a picnic lunch (please pack your own... and yes alcohol is allowed... lol) and enjoy at the picnic tables on their grounds. For those that are interested, there is also a tram tour. This tour will begin at 1:30 and is also 1.5 hours. The cost is $13 and will be paid directly to me (we are unable to buy individual tickets for that one in advance, so to ensure our group can go, they will let me reserve the entire tram in advance). This tour is limited to 18 people (again due to social distancing) You can either pay me the $13 via Zelle or Paypal: Zelle: My account is under[masked] Paypal: paypal.me/evab72 To clarify... the cruise is paid directly to the tour company. The tram tour is paid to me. I hope you can join us! Eva

Valentine's Day Brunch at Cristof's on McGregor

Cristof's on McGregor

Hi Friends! I thought it would be nice if we could celebrate Valentine's Day together with a brunch at Cristof's. We will meet at 9:45, to be seated promptly at 10:00. Because it is Valentine's Day and the restaurant is going to be very busy, I need everyone to arrive on time. They are going to reserve an area outside for our group, but if we aren't ready to be seated on time, they will remove those seats from our section. If you sign up and cannot make it, PLEASE change your RSVP. I need to be able to give the restaurant an accurate count the Saturday before. Thank you so much! Eva

BBQ Lunch at Lakes Park

Lakes Park

Hi Friends! I wanted us to be able to have another "picnic" in the park... but wanted to make it safer for everyone in the group. So instead of everyone bringing a dish, this event will be catered by Beach Brothers BBQ (YUM). Side note... this is a great opportunity for us to support one of our local restaurants after a very tough year. Each meal will have 2 sides: homemade mac and cheese & homemade baked beans, along with a cornbread muffin. You will have a choice of 4 meals: BRISKET DINNER $25 (smoked sliced brisket served w/ sweet BBQ & brisket sauce on side) ST LOUIS STYLE RIBS $24 (4 bones served w/ sweet BBQ sauce on side) PORK SANDWICH with Coleslaw $23 CHICKEN SANDWICH with Coleslaw $22 Please bring your own drinks. The meals will be in a "to go" container and utensils will be included. This will be a pay in advance event. I need to pay the restaurant a deposit in advance, so if you plan to attend, please pay me as soon as possible. Zelle: My account is under[masked] Paypal: paypal.me/evab72 If you use Paypal, please make sure your Paypal account is linked to your bank account (not a credit or debit card) or there is in incremental fee that will reduce what I receive. Along with our lunch, the park has a lot of other fun activities to do! Parking is $1 an hour or $5 for the day. https://www.leegov.com/parks/parks/lakespark I have reserved Pavilion B3. It holds 90 people, but to allow for social distancing, I will limit the event to the first 45 to pay. So the restaurant has time to prepare, you must RSVP and pay a week in advance. Again... the sooner the better because I will have to pay them in advance. I hope you can come! Eva
