Thank you agstacker. Charllotte and Punta Gorda are very boat mooring orientated locations (and pointless if you don't own a boat), with no beaches locally without driving miles north to Venice or South to Fort Myres or towards Naples. So Estero and Bonita Springs would be a mid way compromise between Venice and Naples then. Thank you for the tip.

I agree. I check the weather all the time and there's very little difference. For example, take Naples right now 12:27 am EST on 11/20. It is 60 degrees according to The Weather Channel. Sarasota, which is over 100 miles north of Naples is 59 degrees. Not a big difference. Tampa, which is even further north is 58.4 degrees.

If someone wants to compare cities, it only takes a few seconds to type the words "weather Naples" or "weather Sarasota" in your browser or you can get on Wunderground, Accuweather or the Weather Channel site and type a zip code or city in the search box.

Definitely!

I want to mention that the listing price is not the only factor to consider when looking for a condo in SWFL. Often you'll see a listing that's in your price range, but the association fees add up to more than $500/month.

Hey Purple,

Where abouts in England are you from? Just curious, love England and the Brits.. Anyway, reason i ask, if perhaps Estero and Bonita may feel a little too unfinished and empty for you. Given England is so much more populated than FL. Naples, however seems to hit the nail on the head, with the right mix of buzz and relaxation. I work in Estero, and the place is definitely missing something. Bonita though it has some nice communities, it also has a lot of undesirable areas. My vote is Naples, yes it costs a little more, BUT you're getting a lot more for your money. The place has everything that a Brit could ever dream of. Anyway, PM me if you need any help on any info. I know lots of Brits and I could even have some give you some good personal recommendations on the Naples lifestyle and best parts to relocate too. Cheers !

I very much prefer Marco Island to anywhere in Naples.

What is you (Floridians) opinion on Venice as compared to the areas mentioned?

I know this thread is 2 years old, but I'll answer because we looked in Naples, Estero, Bonita Springs, and Venice. We ended up in Venice. All of the neighborhoods were beautiful. It depends on what you are looking for. We wanted to be within 20-30 minutes of the beach, and not super crowded in season. Location relative to the beach knocked out Estero- it would take too long to get to the gulf from most places (I didn't want to be on top of Ft. Myers). The traffic knocked out most of Naples. I would only consider north Naples- north of Pine Ridge Road. Everything in that area was much higher priced than Bonita Springs or Venice. We looked in south Bonita Springs- Hawthorne, Village Walk, Bonita Lakes. We chose Venice because it fit all of our needs and was least expensive of the choices.

I live in both cites...2 weeks in each, every month because of work and I can tell you, there is at least 8 degrees difference.

It is cooler in Sarasota and Naples has more bugs

Default Bonita Springs is much more affordable

Hi, I have been to Bonita Springs and it is very nice, there are great housing communities there which are much less expensive than the ones in Naples, and if one wants to go down to Naples, it is not a long drive. I have seen that Naples is SO expensive, I personally don't believe in living there.
