Come To Fort Myers Beach On National Seashell Day And Help Break A Guinness World Record!

The third annual National Seashell Day will kick off the summer season on June 21 at Fort Myers Beach.

The Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau (VCB) plans to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Largest human image of a seashell. The VCB is asking for the support of the community to make it happen.

The VCB’s goal is to take the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title with more than 1,000 people on the beach to fill in the form of a seashell. A GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicator will be on-site to verify the attempt.
