City Guide

Bonita Springs
"Florida is a place of unparalleled diversity of backgrounds, experiences and vision. It makes our culture unique, but it can also make it difficult to define a common identity and create a sense of community that reaches beyond our neighborhoods to all corners of our state." -- Jeb Bush
"Florida is a place of unparalleled diversity of backgrounds, experiences and vision. It makes our culture unique, but it can also make it difficult to define a common identity and create a sense of community that reaches beyond our neighborhoods to all corners of our state." -- Jeb Bush

Pretty, beautiful, and lively: the English definition of the Spanish word "bonita." Situated on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Bonita Springs meets that definition. Part of the Cape Coral-Fort Meyers Metro area, Bonita Springs has a population of just over 43,000, and a beautiful spot on the Gulf of Mexico and Estero Bay. The gulf-side area of the city is called Bonita Beach, located on a barrier island between the Gulf and the Bay. Also, the Imperial River flows through the city center into Estero Bay. There’s water everywhere for swimmers, sunbathers, anglers, and boaters to enjoy. This is a quiet, beach loving town -- no rowdy beach blanket bingo here if that's not your thing. If you prefer the sound of the waves to the sound of a boom box, you’ll love strolling the soft white sands.

It also has apartment homes and rental units ranging from one bedroom apartments to three bedroom apartments. Whatever apartment search youre undertaking, you’ll find a property to suit you here in this coastal city. So you can take a deep breath, and relax!

And whats the lifestyle like? Many residents work as service providers, and in sales or management. A solid percentage of workers telecommute to work -- the better to enjoy the beach lifestyle. Seasonal residents make the population rise during vacation time, with many businesses focusing on tourism, such as boat rentals, or beach excursions.

Sparse and low-key, regardless of your age or the neighborhood you choose you can expect a laid-back lifestyle focused on outdoor activities. Property availability increases when it's not vacation time, so if you're looking to move in the height of vacation season, allow plenty of time for your search.
