    I have been to Pelican Preserve many times and I am still amazed at the level of activities and the beauty of the facilities. The walking and biking paths in the lovely preserve, the sports complex that includes tennis, pickleball, bocce ball, softball and an incredible fitness center. Low impact classes such as water aerobics and stretching provide something for everyone. Pelican Preserve even has a woodworking shop, art room and sewing machine room. This community is one you want to visit!

    My husband and I have been living at Pelican for nearly 2 years now and I still feel like I'm on vacation. I can't say enough about how wonderful the community is. The beautiful boardwalks are what really sold me, we walk every day. Golf here is fabulous, the fitness center and pools are great and having a nice restaurant is so convenient. We are very happy living here and have made many new friends plus we've each lost about 10 pounds!
