I'm not sure what would qualify as the most tropical neighborhood in SWF but from what I've seen, Naples is the most tropical city--much lusher vegetation than found in Ft. Myers and Cape Coral.

Some of the neighborhoods off of McGregor, especially near the river, I suspect. Those older neighborhoods along the river that have well-established plantings and natural vegetation that hasn't been plowed over would be your best bet.

The Everglades?

I get that feeling when I drive to Placida or Boca Grande. Very pretty areas.

I love the royal palm trees that line McGregor Blvd.

Recently did a walking tour of Dean Park in Fort Myers. Lovely neighborhood. Historic houses and lush tropical vegetation. Home - Dean Park

Naples does have a more 'manicured' feel, I find it a little bit pretentious, but it sure is pretty.
Pine Island and Matlacha have a distinct feel that's more 'come as you are', pretty tropical. Always reminds me of a small Key West, without all the bodies and bars.
