Babcock Ranch Featured in Washington Post

Babcock Ranch was recently featured on the Washington Post website in a story titled Running on the Sun. Janine Zeitlin visited Babcock Ranch and got to witness a day-in-the-life at Babcock Ranch on a Friday night.

Parents slipped off their shoes and admired the peach-hued southwest Florida sunset over the 300-acre lake. A singer strummed beneath an oak tree at the farm-to-table restaurant.

The Friday scene at this community, billed as the nation’s first solar-powered town, unfolded like a director’s take on an eco-utopia.
