Getting healthy and focusing on better health is a common New Year resolution. However, usually by this time in the year, old habits have taken over and good health has gone to the wayside. 

It's so important to stay healthy all year around, and luckily there are plenty of places in the area that support a healthy lifestyle. Pop by The Sanibel Sprout for a juice or sign up with Sanibel Health Club. That and more in our 2017 Health & Wellness Guide.

Cips Place Restaurant

About: "Welcome to Cip’s Place, named for long time Islander Jimmy Cipriani. Jimmy, or “Cip,” (pronounced “Sip”), was the former owner of this property. He was a common sense, down to earth man who always had a story to share, a cause to support and most importantly an invitation to lunch or dinner. Jimmy always made time for good conversation, good company and great food. We wanted to make this restaurant exactly the kind of place that Jimmy would want to go to.

So this is Cip’s Place.  A casual, comfortable place to relax, enjoy good food and good times while being reminded of the old days on Sanibel."
