5 of the Best Neighborhoods in Southwest Florida

Posted on November 15, 2018

Southwest Florida’s full range of offerings benefits everyone.

Whether you enjoy the nature of Bonita Springs or the vibrant lifestyle of Naples, you’re sure to always enjoy yourself. Check out the areas below to see where you should visit next!

Bonita Springs

If you’re in Southwest Florida and looking for outdoor adventures, then you need to check out Bonita Springs. The natural beauty of this area is outshone only by the full list of activities that can be enjoyed here. Go paddle boarding around Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park and marvel at how clear and blue the water is, or search for underwater creatures when snorkeling at Little Hickory Island Beach Park.

Boca Grande

This residential community stands out for how it maintains its small-town aesthetic as Florida continues to grow. That’s exactly how the locals here like it, and they work to keep it that way. They’re proud of their history, as evidenced by the maintenance of the Downtown Boca Grande Historic District and the Boca Grande Lighthouse. Some of the area’s best beaches are on islands that are accessible only through private boat or ferry, but they’re worth the visit.

Manasota Key

A barrier island with tons of wildlife. Here locals and their guests love to spend their days out on the water exploring the area. You have your choice of fishing charters, museums, and scuba diving, but a personal favorite is Englewood Beach. When you’re done soaking up the sun and stretching out on the sand, take some time to stop at the White Elephant Pub for a casual good time with friends!


Self-described as ‘Florida’s Cultural Coast’, Sarasota’s historical and current involvement with the arts has indulged and entertained everyone who has visited it. Its role as the winter home for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus has left an indelible mark on the area. Even today, John and Mable Ringling’s lavishly decorated mansion, Ca’ d’Zan, serves as a museum gallery, a performance hall, and an event venue.


Whether you’re into golfing, shopping, outdoor recreational activities, or simply kicking back and enjoying the great Florida weather, you can have it all in this city. After you’ve spent a busy day enjoying Naples Beach, dining down Fifth Avenue South, and seeing what Artis-Naples has to offer, head home to Naples Reserve, where you can enjoy all kinds of amenities, activities, and programs. Best of all, you’re never far from the center of Naples, so you get the fun of the neighborhood and the city!

A best-selling South Naples community, Naples Reserve offers 18 fully decorated models available for viewing, built by Southwest Florida’s premier homebuilders, including Ashton Woods, D.R. Horton, Florida Lifestyle Homes, KTS Homes, Lundstrom Development, Marvin Development, McGarvey Custom Homes and Stock Signature Homes. Homes are priced from the low-$300,000s to over $1 million.

Here is where lakes provide prime opportunities for using the community’s Hydrobikes, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, and scenic vistas. The community’s centerpiece 125-acre Eagle Lake features a large tiki hut on destination Kontiki Island and also offers a mile-long stretch of lakefront nestled against the Picayune Strand State Forest, a 76,000-acre state park with protected pinelands, marshes and abundant wildlife. Its distance to Naples puts residents close to some of the best things that the area can offer, such as golfing on the finest golf courses, shopping down Third Street South, and watching the water lap the shores of the Gulf of Mexico.

Don’t just take our word for it on how good it is here – schedule a visit with our Welcome Center, located at 14885 Naples Reserve Circle in Naples Florida, to see our models and see what makes life here so Casually Awesome. Call (239)732-1414 for more information.
