dont know too much about ft myers, but st aug is much better, nicer, friendlier, less crime, etc... do it. it's a good move. the only thing lacking in st aug is entrtainment and jobs, but everything else is better in st aug. even the weather.

also go to the school site for each town that should be pasted in real estate site

the schools are better and the beaches...... eeeehhhhh. the west coast water is prettier but the east coast has better waves. it is is good decision to leave ft myers for st aug. i think everyone would agree with me.

St. Augustine is located in St. Johns County and their school system is ranked #5 of 67 in the state.

Lee County schools are ranked #30 of 67.

I personally would take St. Aug over Ft. Myers. The weather is a bit different in north FL and you get more wave action in the Atlantic than the Gulf but the beaches in St. Aug are nice and there is the great history there. You are also close to Jax and can take advantage of the big city stuff there. I think there are fewer retirees also. You are closer to the rest of the US too, so you can actually drive to other places without spending 5 hours just getting out of FL.

Fort Myers is not a nice place anymore and its not looking good in the long run. I would make the move to St. Augustine !
