About Naples

On the surface, Naples Florida is a beautiful beachside town. And yet, for a town of its size, Naples has so much more to offer than what vacationers’ untrained eyes behold. The beach is just one of the dozens of reasons Naples continues to attract new residents of all ages.

For those who live, work and play in this Gulf coast paradise, the area’s low cost of living and slower pace of life actually trump Naples’ more popular hallmarks, like the beach. Yes, you read right. Naples is (gasp!) affordable.

Does this surprise you? Many perceive Naples to be an exclusive retreat for the wealthy, but regular folks are finding that living here is actually considerably cheaper than other areas of the country. The most touted advantage to life in Naples is no state income tax, but do you also know that property taxes, energy costs and housing take less of a bite out of your budget compared to many northern locales?
