Did you know that Estero is Spanish for estuary? An estuary is where the river meets the sea. The heart of Estero is the Estero River – a big resource that brought people to the area; this area has now transformed into a beautiful, growing community in Southwest Florida, where residents can enjoy the warm weather and witness the state’s exotic plant and animal life.
Estero actually became its own village in 2014, and had its first mayor in 2015. Over the years, the village has become a fun, unique community with a vibrant economy.
Residents, people from neighboring towns, and tourists flock to the area for the great shopping at the Coconut Point Mall and Miromar Outlets. For those looking for something fun to do, big shows and well-known celebrities grace the stage in the village’s Germain Arena. For something educational, Koreshan State Historic Site and Bowditch Point Regional Park offer different outdoor experiences for people to learn about the area and explore nature. If golfing is your thing, there are several beautiful public and private golf facilities in the area; some courses are designed by famous architects and PGA Tour players. Being in Southwest Florida, people expect to be around a beach, and Estero has no shortage of them nearby. Great Lovers Key State Park, Bonita Beach Park, Barefoot Beach Preserve, Clam Pass Park, and Vanderbilt Beach are gorgeous, serene beaches to check out.
Whether you want to go fishing or buy a whole new wardrobe, this town offers something for everyone.
