When the weather's nice, and it usually is, take a tour of the Gulf Coast with J C Cruises. You can go for as little as an hour, or take your meals aboard ship and make a day of it. And younger children will particularly like the Imaginarium Hands On Museum and Aquarium. They'll be able to see alligators, stingrays and other marine wildlife and can even participate in feeding the swans. And children will love the new playgrounds at Lakes Regional Park. And even teenagers will like the Shell Factory, featuring animals and attractions like bumper boats. Everyone will be amazed at how beautiful Butterfly Estates is, with it's stately buildings and butterfly conservatorium. And check the schedule, there's usually a family friendly show at Fleamaster's Music Hall.1 And for a really different experience, take the family out for dinner at Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. The entertainment's appropriate for families, and the food is fantastic. In spring time, fathers will want to grab some peanuts and cracker jack and take the kids out to the ball park to watch the Red Sox play their spring training games. And make sure you check out one of the area's many bird aviaries, featuring an array of the area's winged friends.

Those who suffer from grief often feel isolated or alone. Their mental and emotional well-being is at stake, and that can create other problems in daily life. Grief can even transition into clinical depression when unaddressed.3 Those grieving can feel as if they’ve become a burden on family and friends. Grief support groups can be a wonderful support during this time. The Southwest Florida Chapter of Compassionate Friends holds a grief support group on the third Wednesday of each month in Fort Myers.4 For more information, contact the chapter at (239) 690-7801.
