YouTube Thursdays - Neighborhoods in Bonita Springs, FL

YouTube Thursdays - Neighborhoods (and life) in Bonita Springs, Florida 

April 15, 2021



We are happy to have discovered Chris Griffith, thanks to Michael Jacobs. Chris was looking for YouTube groups in Active Rain, and Michael sent us her information. Please subscribe to her YouTube channel, Chris has a large library of videos you'll find at, Life in Bonita Springs by The Griffith Group. 

In this video, Chris takes us on a tour of the Sterling Oaks Community Nature Preserve that is a wonderful ammenity for the adjacent neighborhoods. While it's not your typical neighborhood tour, we like that it gives relocation clients a feel for the area.  We especially like hearing footsteps as Chris walks the trail. 



This video highlights a neighborhood called Colonial Country Club in Fort Meyers.

We think the map is a nice addition!

Thanks Ron and Alexandra. Bernie and I can certainly appreciate Florida, although admittedly, we haven't visited too many places.

Hi Debb,

Thanks for sharing.  You sparked another idea using a quick video on a hike. Love it.  I can see people who like to walk would love that hidden pathway.  Great selling feature.

Hi Debb and Bernie:

Thanks for a couple more great examples of local videos that we could emulate. I haven't been to Bonita Springs but I certainly know Chris as a long-time AR member.

Thank you for the heads up on this.  My goodness that walkway is so lush and full of plants and trees surrounding it.  That is something.  Mark

Hi Debb... thanks for sharing these videos... I really enjoyed them (and that's saying a lot since I'm not personally much of a video watcher!).

I have seen some of her posts but she doesn't seem to comment on mine so I haven't really gotten to know her.  Such a great video collection though!

Great video and it's an ideal area of FL on the West coast. Of course any video that featured a golf course deserves a 5 star rating.

Hi Debb and Bernie- I'm late to the dance here but loved the video.  I believe as you do that these videos help to add another dimension to the area for a buyer or anyone wanting to learn more about where they live.
