Southwest Florida Has it All.

It is no wonder that Collier County is among the most sought-after relocation and retirement destinations in the world.With a unique blend of the hospitality of a small town and the sophistication of a large city, set within an environment of exceptional beauty and tropical weather, the area has attracted visitors that span the globe.

Recreational opportunities abound. Miles of public-access renowned sugar-sand beaches line the inviting waters of the Gulf of Mexico. With the second most golf holes per capita in the country, Naples is an annual stop for the PGA Champions Tour, the Shark Shoot-Out and the LPGA. Boating and fishing provide year-round aquatic recreation.

Natural attractions can be found throughout Collier County. From nearby Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary and Rookery Bay, to the Naples Zoo, the wonders of the Everglades, and the Naples Botanical Garden, eco-tourism is a thriving pastime.

Cultural opportunities are of the highest caliber, yet are highly accessible. The Artis-Naples and its Philharmonic Orchestra have a full-slate of annual concerts, lectures and exhibits in the adjacent Naples Museum of Art. The downtown von Liebig Art Center and Sugden Theater, as well as a number of outdoor art festivals, have helped make the Naples area one of the country’s “10 Best Art Towns”.

With an active social community, Collier County boasts hundreds of annual events that range from the from the outdoor food and fun festival, Taste of Collier, to the country’s most successful Winter Wine Festival, which has donated over $100 million in the past decade to local children’s charities.

Medically speaking, the area is second to none with two campuses of the NCH Healthcare System and two campuses of Physicians Regional Medical Center to serve every health need. Seven institutions of higher learning are located nearby including Florida Gulf Coast University, Florida SouthWestern State College and Hodges University.
