Sometimes those of us who live in the Naples area year-round poke fun at residents who only spend the winter months with us. We lovingly call them "snowbirds" because when the snow starts to fly in the north, they head for the warm comfort of Naples. The truth is, they're probably onto something. Why not enjoy the best of both worlds? If you're going to do that, you might as well do it right so that you really do enjoy your time in both places. Here's a look at a few secrets to being a successful snowbird.
One thing most Floridians can count on is that they’ll get visitors on a fairly regular basis. Hey, you love living here, so it’s no surprise that your family and friends will want to come visit. So how can you show them a little bit of southern hospitality while they’re here?
If you’ve been toying with the idea of remodeling your Florida home, now is a great time to do it. Why consider a renovation project when we’re headed into the summer months?
We thought it would be fun to introduce people to our neighbor to the north. If you’re ever headed to Fort Myers from Naples, you may want to stop along the way and acquaint yourself with the town of Estero.
While there are a multitude of other things to do in the Sunshine State (both indoors and outdoors), we have to admit that hitting the links is a pretty big deal. And when it comes to golf, Naples celebrates the sport with as much exuberance as any place in the state. But which course should you choose?
There are a lot of things to do and see in the Naples area. Of course being healthy makes it a lot more fun to explore the opportunities! The good news is that there are plenty of great healthcare providers in the area to help keep you in good shape—or to get you back into good health when injuries or illness interrupt your plans.
When people think about things to do in Florida in the summer, physical labor usually isn’t at the top of their list. Let’s face it; with average temperatures in the 90s in Naples from June through September, demanding physical exertion doesn’t sound all that attractive.
There are about 20 million people who consider Florida a great place to live. It’s not hard to understand why. Northerners are attracted by the warm climate and the seemingly endless outdoor recreational opportunities. Of course Florida is more than just Disney World and South Beach, and many people come to the Naples area to enjoy the museums, arts, theatre—and of course—the beautiful beaches.
