When choosing where to buy your luxury home, you shouldn’t settle for anything less than one of the best communities in the nation. Can you imagine a better place to buy a home than the city named America’s #1 beach town to live in, America’s #2 best small city to live in, as well as the best place for golfers to live in Florida?
Welcome to Naples!
One of the driving factors for living in Naples is the fantastic golfing. It is a dominant part of the city’s appeal. Naples’s first course was carved out in 1919 at a time when only about 100 people lived there. Although Naples is no longer a sleepy fishing village, its golf is as good as ever!
Naples isn’t just the best place to call home for golfers though. The weather, relaxed attitude, low crime rates, and job opportunities all combine to make what we feel is the most livable city in Florida.
However, we don’t want you to just believe us because we said so. We have compiled a list of what makes Naples be above the rest of other Florida cities.
Naples Has Peace and Quiet You Can’t Find in Boca Raton

While both South Florida towns have great golfing, Naples is the place to be if you are looking to relax. Broward County is a bustling place and Boca Raton is no exception. The city has almost 100,000 residents compared to Naples with less than 22,000. If it’s peace and quiet you are looking for, head to Naples.

You Can Count on Less Rain in Naples than Pensacola
Pensacola receives 65 inches of rainfall annually! Compare that to the 260 sunny days and less than 40 inches of rain a year in Naples and you’ll understand why so many people call this townhome. The physical beauty surrounding Naples and the gleaming Florida sun that’s sure to be shining when you’re out golfing, walking, or enjoying time with friends is part of what makes Naples such a special place to live.
Crime Is Much, Much Lower in Naples Than Miami

Miami Dade County is a cultural hub in Florida, but it is also one of the most dangerous places in the state. The crime rate in Miami makes it a less than ideal place to retire or bring your family. In 2019, Miami Dade County saw over 13,000 cases of violent crime and just under 87,000 cases of property crime. In 2019, the entirety of Collier County, in which Naples is located, saw less than 94% less violent crime than Miami Dade County and 95% less property crime.

Naples Has Less Traffic than Fort Lauderdale
Fort Lauderdale sits in the middle of a metropolitan area of 5 million people. While the area offers plenty to do, that brings a lot of traffic and congestion with it! When Fort Lauderdale residents were asked about traffic in the area in 2019, 65% of residents said they were dissatisfied with traffic flow in the area.
In Naples, you don’t need to worry about the hubbub of in-town traffic the same way as you would in Fort Lauderdale. If you live at Talis Park most of what you need lies within the community itself, which means your chances of getting stuck in traffic are next to none! The average commute time in Naples is also 27% less than in Fort Lauderdale.
Naples Is More Pedestrian-Friendly Than Tampa

Sadly, the Tampa Bay area has one of the highest rates of pedestrian fatalities in the U.S. From 2012 to 2018, nearly 1,300 people died as a result of motor vehicle crashes in Hillsborough County, where Tampa is located.
In Naples, the numbers are much lower and inside the gates of Talis Park, the community is both walkable and pedestrian-friendly, with pedestrian bridges and walking trails on the luxury property.
Naples Is More Affordable than Palm Beach

Palm Beach County is beautiful, but you can get that same beauty for a quarter of the price in Naples! According to bestplaces.net, the average home price in Palm Beach is $1,170,800 compared to $323,700 in Naples. Both of these towns are far above the average home price in the U.S., making them both great locations to buy a luxury home but if you want more bang for your buck– Naples is the place to be!
Naples is Home to A More Vibrant Economy than Orlando
