My Little Hideaway in Paradise! 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( May 14, 2018) I moved to Estero, Florida, to get away from the cold winters of Chicago.

If you love golf, the best areas in Estero are the countless golf courses and country clubs. We have a yacht club only a few miles north and can escape to the bigger cities like Naples and Sarasota in minutes. The best restaurants run up and down Tamiami Trail, and shopping ranges from the upscale malls to discount outlet centers.

I can even escape Estero via Interstate 75 and cut across the Sunshine State to Miami or to Key West on a day trip. This hidden gem has the best restaurants, shopping, and attractions too. Sailing, fishing, or riding my bike, some of the incredible activities I can do each day. Read Less
