I believe the best area is Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte. Both are very close to access the Interstate, equally easy to get to Fort Myers Airport or Bradenton/Sarasota. Depending upon whether you are a boater or golfer, these towns have it all. These towns are diverse and have many different activities to interest you. We are also close enough to the "big" cities if you want a little more activity upon occassion. If you check out my website: risewells.michaelsaunders.com, you can see video's of the different areas. I'm happy to assist you in your search.
