If this is your first visit to sunny Southwest Florida, it probably won't be your last. Most residents were once visitors who chose to make it home. The reasons why are easy to understand. Its climate is one of the best in the nation. Water is everywhere - from the Caloosahatchee River to the Gulf beaches of Fort Myers Beach and the islands of Sanibel, Captiva and Gasparilla to the canals of Cape Coral, the flats of Pine Island Sound and the paradise of the outer islands of Cayo Costa, Useppa and more. Soutwest Florida just explodes with tropical flavor.
If land-based sports are more your style, try one of the dozens of golf courses or tennis courts the region offers - or plan a visit to one of the professional sports venues in Lee and Charlotte counties.
If shopping is on your agenda, you'll find everything from some of Florida's finest consignment shops to upscale department stores and one-of-a-kind boutiques. As you drive the miles of store-lined highways or browse among the streets of our various community shopping districts, you'll see that the area is filled with small, family owned businesses... each with its own specialty served up with friendly hometown service.
You're going to love Southwest Florida. There's no place like it. We hope you enjoy your visit and will plan to return soon.
