Retiring in Southwest Florida

South Florida includes the Counties of Hardee, Desoto, Charlotte, Lee, Collier, Monroe, Hendry, Glades, Highlands, & Okeechobee

Southwest Florida and the Fort Myers area offer residents great leisure opportunities and a high quality of life. Retirees can find a quality of life in the region not found in other communities. Personal income and effective buying income has steadily risen since 1990, with the greatest recent employment growth in the home health industry. The cost of living, in comparison with cities such as Washington D.C. and Miami, FL, is far below average. Recreation is also stressed in Southwest Florida. For almost 70 years, Fort Myers has been famous for its professional baseball spring training. From February to April, both the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins call this town home.

The residents of Southwest Florida value their natural environment. The region is home to the massive ecosystem called the Everglades, the River of Grass, with its 600 species of birds and animals and its 1,000 plant varieties. Bonita Springs is only minutes away from the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary and the northern border of the Big Cypress Swamp. It's also home to Everglades Wonder Gardens, a refuge for exotic birds and animals.
