My husband and I grew up in Miami and relocated last year to N. Atlanta because we weren't happy with the enviroment in Miami. Unfornately my husband is getting terrible allergies here and we need to return to Florida. I really don't want to return to Miami. Can anyone give me pros and cons of Naples. We are in our 30's no kids. We just like going to movies and restaurants in a nice enviroment. Anyone specially that has relocated from Miami to Naples. We are considering either Ft Laud or Naples, which is better.

Thanks

My pick would be the east coast. It's rowdier, more crowded, and more congested but there is just so much more going on, especially for the childless. Naples is prettier looking, safer, and calmer but it's also kind of like the Boca Raton of the midwest. There are a lot of really uptight retirees there. Ft. Lauderdale area has a relatively low median age by national and Florida standards. However if you just want a clean place with all of the basics you probably want to be in the SW portion of the county (referring to Broward here) west of I-75 or at least west of University Dr.

If you want that pretty looking manicured kind of envrionment though with more going on, you could always look into Palm Beach County, like Palm Beach Gardens or Jupiter.

Thanks for replying. We are just worried there wouldn't be enough to do in Naples. We use to go there years ago and it was very quite. Alot of people tell me to check out Tampa also.

I don't know, I'm thinking northern Palm Beach County for you guys, the areas that I named...the envrionment is kind of like Naples but there is just more going on over on that coast. Ft. Lauderdale has more going on but it's also more chaotic than any of the places mentioned. Palm Beach County generally is a nicer envrionment than both Tampa (lots of blue collar grit, although some people like that) or Ft. Lauderdale (crowded on the east side, clean but bland on the west side).

What will be the ideal area in Naples near shopping, movies and restaurants etc so I can compare. If you know a zip code that will be great. Only problem I hear about Palm Beach is the crime, it seem to be getting worst.

The crime rate in Palm Beach did just recently exceed Hillsborough, and Broward is also catching up with both of them. But they all have their safe areas. There is nothing wrong with Palm Beach Gardens or Jupiter.

As far as Naples, I don't know, I don't live there lol.
