Naples in Top 25 Places to Retire
From the picturesque beaches to the welcoming atmosphere and countless hotspots around the city, Naples is one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations for good reason. Every year, flocks of visitors come south to experience Southwest Florida’s famous sunshine and warm weather – and every year, they hate to leave. But more and more people are staying behind to call Naples their new home, and retire in luxury.
Forbes.com has listed Naples, Florida among the nation’s 15 best places to “retire rich,” and the numbers are there to back that up. According to the website, some 42% of the population is age 65 or higher, and the median income rests around $65,000. The 10 unobstructed miles of beachfront in the city is a popular place for residents of all ages to unwind and relax, and Naples even holds the distinction of boasting more golf holes per capita than any other city in the United States.
The average home price of $520,000 even masks the numerous homes available at both ends of the scale, from the small, cozy bungalows on the water to the astonishing, multi-million dollar mansions that are sprawled out on acres of property. Naples is known for catering to everyone, while still being the perfect place to retire to and start a new life of fun, relaxation, and stress-free comfort.
