What Makes Naples so Desirable?

Nearly every newspaper, magazine and online article has deemed Naples, Florida one of the happiest and healthiest places to live in the United States. To locals, this is no surprise. Thousands upon thousands of people who grew up in Naples quickly learned that they were in paradise. Very few places in the world offer what Naples can from a geographical, community and business point of view.

In this blog, we'll delve deeper into why Naples, Florida is regarded as a hotspot destination!

Location, Location, Location!

Did you know relaxing at the beach comes with numerous health benefits? Listening to the waves break near the shore along with the salty ocean air has a similar effect as going to a spa. It puts your mind at ease and dissolves the stress of everyday life right away.

There's also something to be said for simply having the option to take a trip to the beach whenever you desire. Everyone who lives in Naples is no more than 45 minutes away from the beach. With a large portion of the population living within 20-30 minutes or less.

Best of Both Worlds

Have you ever lived in a town so small everyone knows your name and what you ate for breakfast that morning? Or maybe you've lived in a big city where you feel like a tadpole in the middle of the ocean? When you live in Naples, Florida, it's somewhere in the middle. There's both a strong sense of community while maintaining your much-needed privacy.

If you ever want to go to a big city for the weekend, Tampa Bay and Miami are just a short day trip of less than 2.5 hours away.

Small Business Charm

As we know, small businesses drive the American economy, and Naples is riddled with an abundance of successful small businesses. This has a lot to do with the connections and relationships people have developed over decades of living in Naples. When you live in other cities, people and their businesses are in and out so fast you never get an opportunity to earn their trust.

Word of mouth is still and will always be the most effective type of marketing. When you live in Naples and earn the trust of the community, your business has an opportunity to thrive... call us old fashioned, but there's something magical about a community supporting small businesses, in turn, providing for those families and giving jobs to others locally.
