Beginning your search for a luxury living lifestyle in an area where the weather is near perfect and the amenities are abundant is not an easy task. Florida is an obvious choice, with beautiful weather year-round, gorgeous beaches, activities for any age, and no state income tax, estate tax, or inheritance tax, but choosing between the many booming cities in our Sunshine State may be a little daunting. That is, unless you experience the west coast jewel of Florida.
It’s the feeling of the warm rays of sunshine caressing your skin as you take a stroll on the historic Naples Pier, the light breeze carrying the scent of freshly baked cookies from 5th Avenue Confectionery in Tin City, or the comfort found in the Thoughtful Threads of the ever-popular Food and Thought.
All of this and so much more is what you’ll find when you come to Naples, Florida, the happiest, healthiest place to live in the United States. In Naples, residents have the lowest levels of stress in the country, report little depression, and eat healthy on a daily basis, at least that’s what they have reported for four straight years in a study by the Gallup-Healthways State of American Well-Being: Community Rankings.
Many of the residents interviewed also reported liking their daily activities, enjoying an intellectually lively culture, and learning or doing something interesting every day. Want to learn more? Let’s explore the benefits of moving to Naples.
Anyone Up For a Round of Golf?
Golf in Naples, Florida isn’t just a hobby, it’s a way of life. As the self-titled “Golf Capital of the World,” Naples has ranked number one nationally for its abundance of golf holes, having 1,530 holes for a population of 324,424 according to the Golf Facilities in the US 2013 report by the National Golf Foundation. We have more than 80 championship golf courses, most of which are private and housed within luxury home communities in the area.
It’s Only Natural
Naples turns a regular day in the great outdoors into an adventure with natural attractions from the nearby Everglades National Park, the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States, to the many parks, sanctuaries, and protected areas available for exploration.
Take in some fresh air while bird watching, hiking, learning about our flora and fauna, or just taking in the natural beauty of the area.
Speaking of natural beauty, you won’t find anything more beautiful than the award-winning, white sandy beaches found on our coast.
Our beaches span more than 10 miles of the Naples coastline leading you into the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, where you can take part in many outdoor activities, like collecting sea shells, paddle boarding, kayaking, boating, and so much more.
See the sights from the place where the sun meets the city when you walk down the historic Naples Pier and see the sparkling water, catch a glimpse of a pod of dolphins, or watch as someone reels in their catch of the day.
Restaurants, Shopping, and Entertainment
If you fancy contemporary seafood prepared from the finest seasonal, organic, and sustainable ingredients, visit Sea Salt on Fifth Ave and dive into the “Fire and Ice” or “Sea and Ocean” platter. Steak lovers will have a mouthwatering experience at Jimmy P’s Charred, where they can sink their teeth into Wagyu cuts and Kobe craft burgers. These are just two of the many deliciously crafted restaurants in Naples, which serve delectable meals for any palate.
