Pelican Bay Named Top Retirement Location

If you’re searching for a great place to spend your Golden Years, you’ll likely want to give Pelican Bay another look. This planned community in Naples was just named one of the nation’s top retirement destinations for 2024.

The ranking is on the MarketBeat website. The digital media company recently surveyed 3,000 current retirees and those who are close to retirement. They were asked if “money were no object”, to come up with the top locations they would choose. 

When all was said and done, MarketBeat ranked what it calls “The 130 Most Coveted Retirement Destinations in America”. Pelican Bay came in at an admirable number two on the list, behind only Wailea on Maui.

When referring to Pelican Bay, MarketBeat made mention of its active social clubs, its fine dining possibilities, and its access to private beaches. The website goes on to describe Pelican Bay as an active and welcoming community with picturesque natural surroundings and a high standard of living. 

It further praised the opportunities for social engagement. The more than three square mile community is found between Park Shore and Vanderbilt Beach in Naples.

When it was originally built up in the 1970s, the developer protected hundreds of acres of mangrove trees. Even today, there are nearly 90 acres of parks and recreation areas in Pelican Bay.

There are also hundreds of single-family homes, thousands of condos, and three golf courses. The Pelican Bay Golf Club includes 27 holes of golf, plus a spa and fitness center. A tram system takes residents to the beach and to restaurants.

Clam Bay is used for canoeing and kayaking, while you’ll also find fishing and an active tennis program at Pelican Bay. Overlooking the Gulf, the North Beach and South Beach are popular spots for everything from beach volleyball to dolphin watching and shelling.
