thrives as a vacation haven for people searching for warmth during the winter. However, many homes
cater to year-round living in this coastal area west of Fort Myers, Florida. A canal doubles as your backyard, so feel free to fish from your porch or put in a canoe to unwind from your work week. The Matlacha Pass National Wildlife Refuge dominates the landscape on the western edge of your community, but you have some modern conveniences to the south if you don't want to spend your Saturday birdwatching for hawks, osprey, and eagles in this massive preserve.
The intersection of Pine Island Road and Burnt Store Road contains a Walgreens, Publix Super Market, and a Beef 'O'Brady's family restaurant. The OMG Burger features 12 ounces of Angus ground beef, provolone cheese, and four slices of bacon while the Watterson arrives at your table filled with roast beef and Swiss cheese grilled on rye bread. Take your culinary selections to new heights in downtown Fort Myers, just 14 miles to the east.
