Look out LOCALS…Here we come!!!

School is out, and high school and college graduates should be proud of their accomplishments. We’ve honored our veterans and men and women in uniform (Memorial Day) and dove head-first into the rainy season in June with all the heat, humidity and thunderstorms of a typical Florida summer (although summer has barely arrived!!)

So now that we are officially in our first full month of summer…What’s happenin’? That’s the theme running thru this month’s issue. Here we are, ‘the locals’. The seasonal residents are all gone, and what’s left? The locals!! We are (or should be) the most coveted population to area businesses as we can become the foundation on which to build and grow their businesses.

It’s time for us to cut loose and live with wild abandon!! But wait a minute. It’s hot & steamy, the part-timers are gone and there’s a strange sense of being all alone. Really? I don’t think so!!! This month’s issue is chocked full of fun & interesting things to do. No more feeling sorry for ourselves or whining that we are bored!! Get up, get out and be creative and take advantage of all of the amazing things we have as part of our “Estero Lifestyle”. Our “for locals only” cover story will give you plenty of ideas to entertain you and your family and enjoy all that southwest Florida has to offer.

Check out the “Movies, Music & More at the Mall” and discover what is headed this way for the summer at Coconut Point, Gulf Coast Towne Center and Miromar Outlets.

And what would fun be without FOOD!!! Take a look at the tasty treats and special offers at some of the area’s favorite restaurants. Too many to mention, but if you have a favorite you want us to check out, let us know. You can submit them and any other suggestions on our website, www.esterolifestylemag.com .

And for the golfers in our audience, now is the time to save and play. With careful planning to avoid the heat, there are some terrific golf specials on some of the best courses anywhere!! We’ve provided information on 12 of the best courses open to the public.

And finally, we have provided a comprehensive list of the best places around SW Florida to enjoy the 4th of July festivities and my favorite – FIREWORKS!!!

We at Estero Lifestyle Magazine wish all of you a safe and happy 4th of July celebration. 237 years of the best country in the world. We owe a great deal of gratitude to our veterans and service men and women for enabling us to enjoy all that we do. If you have the opportunity this holiday, reach out to a veteran/service person in uniform of any age and shake their hand and say “thank you”. Better yet, buy ‘em a cup of coffee and listen to their stories. They will make you even more proud to be an American!!

So, until next month… Enjoy the Lifestyle!!!
