Estero is Southwest Florida’s best-kept secret, a haven of history, natural beauty and modern amenities. It’s also a community that offers an attractive cost of living, array of housing options and family-oriented hometown values.

Conveniently located in Lee County between Naples and Bonita Springs to the south and Fort Myers to the north, Estero grants easy access to Interstate 75 and U.S. 41, the area’s major north-south corridors. Florida Gulf Coast University, an accredited member of the state’s university system, is just minutes away, as is Southwest Florida International Airport, which boasts Foreign Trade Zone status.

Excellent schools, exceptional healthcare facilities, two major performing arts centers, numerous museums and art galleries plus unlimited recreational opportunities are all available in the Estero area.

Year-round sunshine perfectly complements Estero’s numerous golf courses, miles of bike paths and countless canoe and nature trails. The Estero River is a scenic ribbon of fresh water that threads to Estero Bay, the area’s treasured and protected aquatic preserve. Perhaps best of all, the shimmering Gulf of Mexico is also located just minutes away.

Richly historic, Estero can claim a heritage filled with ancient Native Americans, Spanish conquistadors, citrus and cattle farmers, a unique religious sect and, finally, 20th century retirees. Today, as Estero forges its way into the future, young families and professionals are joining the ranks of these retirees, uniting to form a thriving community.

Estero is waiting to welcome you, your family and your business to enjoy its endless opportunities.
