Built between 1967 and 2003, Riviera Golf Estates sits in beautiful Naples on the southwestern Florida coast and was once a mobile home community. Hurricanes changed the landscape.

The free-standing homes range from 672 square feet to 2,158 square feet in size and have a carport or attached garage. Bedrooms range from two to three with two and a half baths. Features might include eat-in kitchens, hurricane shutters, and cathedral ceilings.
Most of the mobile homes and manufactured homes have about 1,100 square feet to 1,300 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths. They come in a variety of colors.
Lawns throughout Riviera are well-tended and dotted with palm trees, fruit trees and bushes.
Prices start in the low-$100,000s. The HOA fee is rumored to be $95 per month, but please verify this with a Realtor.
The clubhouse and its annex have billiards tables, a library, rooms for cards and crafts, a catering kitchen, and a fitness center with weight and cardio equipment.
Outside are a swimming pool, a picnic area, paths that lead to lakes and ponds, as well as courts for tennis, bocce ball, shuffleboard, or pickle ball. The condos have their own swimming pools, too.
A full-time activities director supports classes like chair yoga, groups like community chorus, and potluck events and much more. The 18-hole golf course is ready for residents who want to pay per play.
Downtown Naples has a rich night life. Its community theater, The Naples Players, is nationally recognized.

Named Pascua Florida by Juan Ponce De Leon, the Sunshine State did not enter the Union until March 3, 1845. Balmy mild winters began attracting "snowbirds" to the state in the late 19th century, and retirees continue to flock to the state today. It's not hard to see why tourism has become Florida's leading industry.
International trade and citrus are also major contributors to the state's economy. Eighty percent of the nation's oranges and grapefruits are grown here, and 40 percent of all U.S. exports to Latin America flow through Florida.
Florida's landscape includes uplands and coastal plains. It contains more than 11,000 miles of waterways and about 4,500 islands.
Florida also has 1,045 golf courses, more than any other state in the Union. The 47 mile Pinellas Trail is the longest urban trail on the east coast. Orlando theme parks attract more visitors than any other theme parks in the U.S. The only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles co-exist is in National Everglades Park.

Is Everyone in a 55+ Community Really 55+?
Not everyone who lives in a 55+ community is age 55 or better. Generally, at least 80% of residents must be at least age 55 (and at least one occupant of each housing unit must be age 55), while the remaining 20% are allowed to be younger (but usually at least age 45). Children are allowed to visit but usually cannot stay more than two weeks at a time. It is also usually the case that older, more established 55+ communities have an older residential demographic.
