"Number 11" on our
Top 12 List


   12 REASONS... to LIVE... in SOUTHWEST FLORIDA   


11. Traffic...
These coastal cities have developed with bridges to barrier islands providing an influx of tourism and seasonal dwellers. Counties extend east to rural farms and undeveloped land. Major north/south arteries are I-75 and U.S. 41 supplemented by major east/west road systems into each city.

Even in the height of season, traffic flow is uncongested. Note the size of these individual cities within each county listed below. Traffic is much more manageable than our northern counterparts.
