Once again, Travel + Leisure has recognized Naples, Florida on one of its “best places to” lists. In its August issue, the renowned magazine raved about this SWFL gem of a town in an article, “This Florida Coastal City is one of the best places to move in the U.S.”

No surprise to locals, the article praises Naples’ sugar-white sand beaches with stunning sunsets over the Gulf, world-class golf courses, and incredible restaurants, along with its unique participation in the Blue Zones Project as a reason for high ranking. Not to be outdone, U.S. News and World Report recently ranked Naples as the safest place in the country to live. 

The Travel + Leisure article quotes local Coldwell Banker real estate associate Ardel McKenna, who notes, “Once you move to Naples, you can take 10 years off your age. If you want to be outdoors, it’s the best place in the world because it’s always sunny.” And with over 90 golf courses, beautiful beaches, boating, fishing, kayaking, biking, and one of the country’s most walkable main streets there is always a reason to be outside.

Voted Top in Country For “Best in Wellness”

As Naples continues to pile on awards, so does Moorings Park. SWFL’s most popular Life Plan Community recently won the International Council on Active Aging’s (ICAA) NuStep Beacon Award. What does that mean? The community has been recognized as one of the Top 25 “Best in Wellness” boomer communities in North America.

"By growing and sustaining a culture of wellness that not only serves but also engages, their entire community, the 2021 award winners truly exemplify what it means to be a beacon, lighting the way for other communities," says Jane Benskey of NuStep.

"We're pleased to recognize senior living communities that excel at fostering a mindset and environment that emphasizes promise and opportunities."

In addition, you have the very best onsite assisted living, skilled care and memory care available, should you ever need it, at no additional cost.

Captivating Location Unlike Any Other

“Setting is key,” said Mann. “And it’s hard to beat the location of our three communities.” Moorings Park takes the cake when it comes to location; it lies in the heart of Naples and is a short distance from downtown and all its well-known restaurants, boutique shops and entertainment venues. Of course, you can’t forget about the beautiful sugar-sand beaches that are calling your name.”
