Actually you were close to Paradise, It's just down the road named Marco Island.

I'd like to retire on Marco Island someday.

Dyno, I wish we could have gone but with all the stuff happening around here it's a good thing we didn't. Glad you had a good time.

I think paradise is just north of there, up around Pt Charlotte or Punta Gorda. It's just as pretty, the real estate prices are more affordable, and the traffic isn't nearly as bad. The traffic is the main drawback to Ft Myers if you ask me. It was worse traffic there 20 years ago when the area first started booming and the roads had't caught up with the boom. I remember a two lane road was the only route to the beach. It took forever to get there.
