I kind of prefer them as the small and medium size towns they are, but the SW Florida coast will soon be a mini version of South Florida. Some nice town centers in the middle of a long line of coastal sprawl.

If you combine Naples and Cape Coral/Ft. Myers metro's you get just under a million.
The Sarasota/Bradenton/North Port CSA is at 862,259.

Together it's 1.8Million between Bradenton and Naples (about the same distance as Jupiter to Homestead on the east coast). That's a lot of old people. But families are thriving and real jobs are becoming more common.
That's what did it in the end. Not the money, not the music, not even the guns. That is my heroic flaw: my excess of civic pride.
