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.
