Depending on your personal definition of "close to enough activities..." Buckingham is an interesting play. It's 20 minutes from downtown Ft Myers, roughly the same time to the larger shopping centers. As for supermarkets, there are options within 10 minutes or less.
What YOU want in the way of activities, etc are really the keys to Buckingham making sense or not. It is varied from sprawling ranches to small cottages. Purchase prices are also a broad spectrum of options, fitting almost any buyer's budget.
All who respond to your question are willing to help, work with the one that makes the most sense to you.

It seems a little odd that they cant, but then I did some research about the issue, and when you understand the historical reasons, it makes a little sense. Its over-kill, IMHO, but I do understand why the limits are in place. I wish I could get down there in advance, but I think I am just going to use the other tools, (google earth, crime stats, etc.) for now.... more
