Southwest Florida, without a doubt, is one of the most ideal places to live in the country. I firmly believe this, thanks to a combination of great weather, great people, excellent amenities, and a lively environment with lots going on all year round.

Lately, that has remained true. Here is a rundown of what’s happened in Southwest Florida and what is coming up soon.

Bonita Springs National Art Festival

If you weren’t in Bonita Springs on February 8th and 9th for the city’s National Art Festival, you missed out. The Festival, one of the most highly-rated art festivals in the country, brought culture and art to countless visitors a week ago with over 200 artists exhibiting from 32 states and several countries. From classic styles to modern art, this festival had it all – which means you have to mark it down on your calendar when it comes back into town in 2015!

7th Annual Florida Juried Photography Exhibit

Speaking of art, any photography lover should head over to the 7th Annual Juried Photography Exhibit to check out the latest juried photography contest in the Sunshine State. Judged by renowned photographer Clyde Butcher, this year’s exhibit focuses on the great outdoors of Florida and can be seen at Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve until March 1st.
