I still work a few days a week in Ft. Myers so the location is nice for my community. Plus, we wanted a community with nice amenities like the fitness center and pools but didn't really want to be in one of those 55 and older neighborhoods. We like the mix of younger people here, the location, the amenities and the homes.
