Are there any differences between Pelican Bay area and Park Shore area? We are looking at Sea Gate Elementary school area and are looking for areas with as high concentration of year round families. I would think Moorings and south close to downtown is more snow-birds and less year round families. Am I wrong? Any thoughts?

Go on censusdata.gov. You can zoom in on areas by different demographics. Someone who is seasonal is more likely to be retired.

My best guess is the single family homes in either development would have more families, although unlikely to be school aged.

Both areas have very high concentrations of snowbirds in the condos.

We are looking at houses. I was told to maybe look at houses with basketball hoops or toys out front, etc. Our concern is whether every other house is vacant most of the year. We want neighborhoods with plenty of year round full families (with kids).

I know two developments one called Riverstone and actually a lot of families are moving into this development and I will give the thread link to it. Another which just started getting built is Marbella isles and its next to nice school I think. Riverstone in Naples, Florida - A GL Homes Community
Considering buying in Riverstone...Relocating from NY

Communities with a lot of snowbirds may also have a lot of "rules" regarding toys in the yards, kids playing outside unaccompanied (yes some communities do not let kids play outside without an adult present at all times) and so forth, so if you aren't seeing a lot of basketball hoops or toys that could be a reason. If its highly populated with snowbirds more than likely (but not always) its not family friendly.

I think we are looking at Seagate elementary or pelican marsh school districts if we go public. We are also trying to understand Seacrest Country Day and the Community School for private choices too.

Pelican Marsh is the best public elementary school in Naples. If you are looking for family communities around North Naples check out Montaray, Stonegate, Mill Run Victoria Park, that is where most of the families live These areas are almost all full time residents. Pelican Bay and Pelican Marsh are 90% snow birds with no kids. I lived in Pelican Marsh the first year I was here and couldn't wait to move out to a normal neighborhood.

Does mornings and Parkshore also have lots of snowbirds too? Seagate elementary school seems to have a higher test scores. But it also seems to cover much larger area which means to me it must be an area fill the snowbirds. It is unfortunate because it's also close to the water which would be nice to live near. But my wife needs a neighborhood with you around families.

Can you do a drive by? Right near Sea Gate on the Park Shore side is West Blvd. Turn onto Whispering Pine and look around. You will see signs of families. Keep going, make some turns, have fun. You will hear and see kids. When school lets out watch how many kids walk to this neighborhood. There could be seasonal owners here and there but for the most part this area is occupied. It does not become a ghost town in the summer. I think you will like what you see.
