Welcome to Babcock Ranch

At Babcock Ranch, we’re wild about life! We believe in the importance of Civitas – a basic hometown pride and a calling to participate and belong. Civitas is the foundation that unites us and is defined by the pride we take in this place where we live, learn, work, and play. We each contribute to the expanding story of our town, and celebrate the individual and collective memories, achievements, and milestones that are the rich stuff of life.

At Babcock Ranch, we would rather walk or ride a bike than drive. We are stewards of the environment, and proud to say our town is the first solar town in the country. We know one another and call each other by name. We love Babcock’s green spaces, lakes, trails, and preserves just as we appreciate the timeless styles of our neighborhoods and places of learning and commerce. The future of our town is sustained by the sheer joy we take in living here. We invite you to join us in creating that future!

Where is Babcock Ranch?

Bordered by the 73,000-acre Babcock Ranch Preserve and the 65,000-acre Cecil M. Webb Wildlife Management Area, Babcock Ranch is at the epicenter of Southwest Florida’s newest growth corridor, just 20 minutes east of downtown Fort Myers, Florida.

Situated 20 miles north of Southwest Florida International Airport, Babcock Ranch offers both accessibility and a sense of place. Our days begin with sunshine glittering through morning mist and end with moonbeams shimmering on glistening lakes. Forests of longleaf pines and majestic live oaks, the distant cries of wildlife, and streets that wind through neighborhoods where front porches serve as gathering places create a captivating tableau. This is Babcock Ranch – so close to all of Southwest Florida, so enjoyed by those who call it their own!
