With winter in full swing, many active adults dream of a destination where they can enjoy sandy beaches, warm weather, and palm trees. Those dreams are effortlessly turned into reality at Pelican Preserve, where residents are provided with year-round access to all that and more.
Construction on Pelican Preserve began in 2001 in Fort Myers, and when finished, the community will offer 2,500 homes. Residents can choose from a wide selection of condos, attached homes, and either new or resale single-family homes to find the right fit for their lifestyle. There are several different home collections and floor plans available, which feature anywhere from two to four bedrooms, two to four and a half bathrooms, two-car garages or two carport spots, and some floor plans offer a den.
Pelican Preserve’s elegant amenities add to its resort-like appeal. Active adults can feel secure in a gated community that offers unique features like a 38-acre nature preserve, a butterfly garden, and a sand beach. Sports fans can enjoy outdoor activities like lawn bowling, tennis, softball, pickleball, basketball, and volleyball.
The community’s 70,000-square-foot clubhouse, Plaza Del Sol, offers an endless amount of recreational fun. Homeowners get fit in a dance class at the aerobics studio or go for a swim at the indoor lap pool. The ceramics studio and art studio offer a space to unleash creativity. After a day full of activities, retirees can relax by the resort-style outdoor pool, surrounded by palm trees, or catch a movie at the 100-seat theater. Don’t feel like cooking? A juice bar and restaurant are both conveniently located within the community. A membership at the Pelican Preserve Golf Club provides residents with access to the expansive golf course and an additional clubhouse, restaurant, and even a day spa.
While Pelican Preserve offers plenty to do on its own, there’s lots more to see around Fort Myers. Downtown features plenty of art galleries, trendy restaurants, and breweries for residents to explore. Sandy beaches are just a drive away to Fort Myers Beach, while Edison Mall offers a wide range of shopping opportunities.
