The town is small but its getting better. Schools, Parks and nature preserves are being added. Many companies have been moving to this south west florida area and over all you can see an improvement. Ten years ago I would have given the area a 4 out of 10 but now I'd lean towards 7 out of 10. Things have changed dramatically and still are. One peeve of mine has been the roads but while some are new and wonderful we have some still under construction. Though it has been a hassle in the end it has worked out for the best. I see things getting better but in time. My are is under construction.

I would recommend this area to anyone! There is plenty to do for teenagers, middle aged and the elderly. I have lived in this area my whole life and I am glad to say that I still enjoy living here. The weather gets a little warm at times and the traffic gets a little crazy at times, but it's an overall nice area to live in.

Bonita Springs is a quite little town in Suthwest Florida. It's a short drive to the beach and other family friendly places. The cost of living is a little higher then other city's in the area, but the constant sunshine and warm weather make up for it. It's also a short drive to FGCU and FSW. There are plenty of shops and great local restaurants to choose from.
