Prevention and Wellness

Things to Do: SWFL


Sure, you go to school at FGCU, but have you explored your surroundings? Looking for a new restaurant, interested in some entertainment, or want to check out some outdoor recreation in Southwest Florida (SWFL)? What about shopping or all the beaches? 

Prevention & Wellness has done the leg work for you: Entertainment, Shopping, Dining, Outdoor Recretion, and Festival options for our local towns are available here. Peruse our list of great finds we think you should definitely check out, and get leads on things to do as you create a life for yourself at FGCU.

So round up some friends (or people you'd like to get to know), banish boredom, and get out there! Create some memories and make this area your home. College is about books, but it's also about fun, meaningful life experiences. We hope you use this list for just that.
