Peter Abraham

Places to eat

• Blue Pointe

• Bistro 41

• Matzaluna on Sanibel Island

• Shoeless Joe’s

Things to do (besides watch the Red Sox)

• You can play golf at dozens of courses in the area. You literally can’t drive more than a few minutes without being close to a course.

• Go to the beach at Sanibel Island or Fort Myers Beach.

• Go fishing. There are as many places to get a nibble as there are to play golf

• Go shopping. There are a lot of outlets stores in the area.

• Go see another team play. The Twins are in Fort Myers and the Rays are up the road in Port Charlotte.

Tips for fans attending spring training

• Be polite asking for autographs. Yelling out last names is not being polite.

• Get to know an usher. He could help you find a better seat.

• Sunscreen! You’ll be red as a Maine lobster sitting in those stands without it.

• Go watch the minor leaguers work out or see them play.
