Port of the Islands - Sunset Caye

Hi all.

Going to Naples/Ft. Myers in March to check out a condo to purchase as a vacation/winter home.

We are 40s no kids. Is this area too "old" (sorry) for us. The area sounds great for out door sports such as fishing and biking, kayking boating. But if the area is mostly a retirement community - it might not be the place for us.

Any opinions ? (good or bad) also any info on the distance to other "stuff" like restaurants and shopping?

Thanks

We LOVE Port of the Islands, but we only go on vacation, so take that into consideration. It seems to be a good mix of ages in that area (we are in our 40's). You can pretty easily travel to Everglades City, Marco Island, or even Naples for dinner or shopping (not much in EC, though). We've talked about retiring there one day - it is a very peaceful place!:)
