From Fort Myers up to Tampa is a great place to live. Boating wise, the gulf is awesome. I wish I had a chance to move there, I would jump on it. We go to Ft. Myers/Beach every year for vacation.

I have lived in Cape Coral/ Fort Myers now for 12 years. So far very happy with that decision. If you have any questions let me know.

It`s hot/humid as balls, all salt water boating, old people everywhere and most years you get a nice hurricane and your boats ends up in the parking lot of a Wallmart. Otherwise it`s nice .

My wife and I bought a small second home in Punta Gorda Isles a few years ago - we really like the area. Yes it gets hot, but I absolutely hate the cold. And Im getting old anyway.

We stayed there and tested boats with Powerboat Mag a few years back. What an AWESOME place! Clean, mellow, not over crowded, nicely laid out. I just got the impression that it was a little better thought out and newer than the east coast. Lots of retiree's which some complain about but retirees don't bring crime. I'd love to live there.

I wouldn't hesitate. I spend time in Naples and that whole region is really beautiful, safe and the growth is really strong. Some of the beaches are amazing and the boating is excellent.

Ask Don for sure. Winters aren't bad over there but the Summers run hotter than the east coast and more humid. Good ICW boating all the way to Tampa Bay.
