Moving to Florida? Consider the Gulf Coast

Moving to Florida? Consider the Gulf Coast

Florida’s Gulf Coast is a paradise with white sand beaches, top-of-the-line fishing, world-class golfing, and sustainable living! If you are looking at new homes in Florida, this coast has everything you are looking for and more.

Beaches

With more than 100 miles of coastline, Southwest Florida is home to some of the best beach living America has to offer! Find a beach you love and keep coming back, or explore the endless array of shoreline options with a different beach trip each weekend. Once you’ve explored everything on the coast, head out to one of the area’s many islands like Sanibel Island, Marco Island, or Captiva Island for even more adventure!

Fishing

Whether you are interested in inshore fishing or looking to head out to fish in the Gulf, Southwest Florida is a fisherman’s dream! Check out the fish identifier on the SWFL Waterways website to learn more about the types of fish you can catch in the area. If you are also looking for the opportunity to fish in a lake, Babcock Ranch offers catch-and-release fishing in its community lakes.

Golf

Fort Myers is home to two public golf courses and about 90 other private courses. If you’d like to golf a little closer to home, consider Babcock Ranch. Our Babcock National community offers an 18-hole Gordon Lewis-designed golf course. The course offers idyllic scenery, pristine fairways, and strategically placed bunkers for a top-notch golf experience that will keep you coming back day after day.

Sustainable Living and Activities

Babcock Ranch is America’s first solar-powered town and is conveniently located just miles from Florida’s Gulf Coast. Not only is it close to the beaches, fishing spots, and golf resorts, but it is home to plenty of other adventures.

Babcock Ranch has 50 miles of trails for you to explore on foot or bike, community gardens, and access to many resident amenities. These include resort-style pools, tennis courts, pickleball courts, a basketball court, and playgrounds.

Sustainability is at the core of Babcock Ranch. From responsible land planning to water-conscious guidelines and energy-efficient buildings, this town provides a greener, affordable, and effortless way of living.
