Southwest Florida Lifestyle
Florida living is complete once you own a Michelangelo Home. Not only is your home paradise but so is the area it’s surrounded by. Experience it through the arts, shopping and a variety of recreational activities.
Enjoy the arts by walking into small galleries on Sanibel Island and along Gallery Row in Naples. Also make time to go to unforgettable performances at the world-recognized performance venues like the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Center in Fort Myers and the Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples.
Enjoy shopping in unique boutiques from Fort Myers to Old Naples. Some of the popular destinations include downtown Ft. Myers, Coconut Point Mall, Gulf Coast Town Center, Miromar and Tanger Outlets, Waterside Shops, Village on Venetian Bay, Third Street South and Fifth Avenue South. For a shopping break, choose from one of the restaurants along the way or stop in for a quick cup of coffee.
It’s easy to enjoy recreational activities since there is rarely a day in Southwest Florida that isn’t beautiful. This gives the inner explorer in you time to enjoy the beautiful scenery through boating, sunbathing, shelling, golfing, fishing or walking through the many parks and preserves.
Florida is not only known for its luxurious sugar sand beaches on the Gulf where one can suntan for hours while reading a book but also for being the home to more than 80 immaculate, plush and challenging golf courses. Many were designed by golf greats like Nicklaus, Norman, Hills and Palmer. Exclusive and flexible membership at many private courses provides not only unlimited tee times, but also access to world-class amenities like full-service spas, country clubs, fine restaurants and personal fitness centers.
Experiencing Southwest Florida’s state, local and private parks and preserves that surround your Michelangelo Home is unforgettable. There are many to choose from but while living in Southwest Florida, experiencing the Everglades is a must-do. This area is unique since it is the only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles live near one another. It is also a place to view other animals, exotic birds and plants that are exclusive to the Everglades. While in the Everglades also take time to go on an airboat ride where you will be able to go into the masterpiece with a tour guide that will explain its everlasting beauty.
There are many things to do and see in Florida’s nature setting, but a day or just a few hours spent at a spring training camp is just as incredible. The team that has given sports enthusiasts an off-season opportunity to watch them play and train in Southwest Florida are the Minnesota Twins.
Access to quality healthcare is another Southwest Florida advantage. A supportive private and public hospital climate as well as abundant independent clinic choices makes finding a qualified healthcare provider simple.
The above information is just a brief overview of what Southwest Florida has to offer you while you make memories in your Michelangelo Home. More information about the area can be found at the chamber of commerce, visitor centers, hotels and travel agencies.
