Island Kudos

– Sanibel Island is the number one travel destination in the world, according to respected travel guru Arthur Frommer, the mastermind behind Frommer’s guidebooks. Frommer recently ranked his ten favorite places to visit and listed Sanibel first, above destinations like Bali and Paris, citing the island’s natural beauty and home for rare birds found at the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge.

– Sanibel Island was recently named by USA Today as one of the worldwide “Top 10 Great Places for Families to Escape the Snow”.

– Trip Advisor has named Fort Myers and Sanibel and Captiva Islands a “Top 10 Favorite Travel Locale” and honored the area with the 2012 Travelers’ Choice National Destinations On The Rise award.

Doc Ford’s Sanibel Rum Bar & Grille is proud to be a major sponsor at the Rosette Spoonbill $5000 level of the upcoming “Ding” Darling Days at J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island. 2011 marks the fourth consecutive year that Doc Ford’s has been a top-level sponsor.

Planned for the week of Oct. 16 – 22, 2011, “Ding” Darling Days is held in conjunction with National Wildlife Refuge Week and celebrates the birthday of the refuge’s namesake, father of the Duck Stamp program and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, J.N. “Ding” Darling.

This year’s events kick-off with Family Fun Day, featuring free narrated Refuge tram tours, live wildlife presentations, hot dogs, nature crafts for the kids, a touch tank, butterfly house and more.

Thanks to such generous sponsorship, throughout the week festival-goers can enjoy free and discounted activities such as biking and birding tours, kayaking and sea life boat excursions, nature photography, nature talks and animal demonstrations.

Doc Ford’s Special Music Event

Wendy Webb & Norville at Doc Ford's Sanibel Rum Bar & Grille

“An unbelievable night of entertainment, in our own backyard!”

Back again, for one night only Norwegian/Nashville Country Artists – NORVILLE!  Featuring special guest – acclaimed signer-songwriter WENDY WEBB

Big music news from Doc Ford’s Sanibel Rum Bar & Grill Wendy Webb is scheduled to perform January 20th at 6:30pm! Last year’s event was played to a full-house of enthusiastic music and Doc Ford fans.

Those familiar with the Doc Ford novels may recognize Webb’s lyrics from the pages of author Randy Wayne White’s novels. What they probably don’t realize is that they may have already met this talented artist – Wendy is married to White and often accompanies him to book signing events.

Though Wendy tours internationally and lives right here in paradise, she rarely appears locally. We are fortunate to have her share her talents – Ms. Webb is scheduled to perform at Doc Ford’s Sanibel Rum Bar and Grill this Thursday, Jan. 2oth! Appearing along with NorVille, this is a not-to-be-missed event. The concert is scheduled to begin at 6:30pm.
