We all know how great Bonita Springs is, with plenty of things to see and do for people of all ages. But it’s nice to see our city get recognition for its qualities, especially by Forbes magazine – who named the city one of its best places to retire in the country.

Forbes took a look at what various cities had to offer retirees. They wanted to see what cities had to offer for retirees who wanted to “follow their passion” with various pursuits. So, they examined the leisure activities – ranging from recreational opportunities to arts and culture – and listed 25 cities.

Here’s what the magazine had to say about Bonita Springs:

“Boating and water recreation paradise along Florida Gulf Coast near 50 golf courses. Median home price: $242,000.”

We all know the wide range of recreational activities available to Bonita Springs residents on the water, especially with a new marina-based resort coming to town. Boating, fishing, and more give retirees plenty to do on the water.

Golf was also mentioned, and Bonita Springs is a golf paradise. The Colony at Pelican Landing, one of the area’s most exquisite gated communities, has a par-72, 18-hole championship-quality golf course that retirees love.

But there is more to do in Bonita Springs than golfing and boating. Our city is great because it has plenty of arts and cultural activities and events going on throughout the entire year. Plus, nearby Naples and Fort Myers also have plenty to do for retirees and virtually anyone else.

There are few places to match the lifestyle of living in Bonita Springs. It’s great to see our city gain recognition we know it deserves!
