• Experience the thrills of professional sandcastle building in Florida

    2011-09-29

    Travelers who wish to escape to the beach this fall should head to Fort Myers, Florida. Not only are the shorelines beautiful and fun to stroll, it is also the site of the American Sandsculpting Championship Festival this November.

    According to the event’s website, this year marks the celebration’s 25th anniversary as the spot for everything sandy. Thousands of spectators gather to view these unique works of art, created by 16 professionals and dozens of amateur sculptors.

    Some say the sand in Fort Myers, which is naturally powder-soft and smooth, is the best around for this type of contest. Travelers can even try their hand at building right next to the greats during this week of fun on the beach, which could be perfect for baby boomers or a sunny weekend with the girls.

    While in town for the exciting festivities, travelers can learn about a little history in the region as well. Fort Myers is home to the Edison and Ford Winter Estates, which housed these two famous inventors during their time.

    Nowadays, guests can visit these places to view period furnishings from the 1800s and see some old sites where Thomas Edison and Henry Ford created things like the V-8 engine.
