BestChoice Reviews named Everglades City last month among the “50 Best Small Town Downtowns in America” for 2015.  The travel site looked at thousands of sleepy towns and picturesque villages across the entire United States.  It found unique, eclectic downtown areas filled with high-energy, a wide array of entertainment and accessibility for Americans in every age group.  Downtown hubs in small towns are the new gathering spots for locals and visitors of the many small towns and cities in the USA.  While many of these downtowns have their own flavor, rich history and culture, many of these small downtowns are now destinations to shop, dine, relax and attend music and art festivals.

The popular new trend for effortless urban living is residential/commercial mixed- use projects targeting millennials and seniors.  Popping up in major cities across the country, mixed-use developments are the answer for people who prefer to walk to their jobs, shops, restaurants and entertainment.  Locally, Coconut Point in Estero and Mercato in North Naples are examples of increased interest of people wanting to move into mixed-use developments.
