Girls Night Out at The BEVY in Naples with Mandy Carter and SWFL Housewives

Eat, Drink, Shop, and Play Local As Much as You Can!

By supporting local businesses, we are in turn supporting our local economy; significantly more money stays in a community when purchases are made at locally owned – rather than nationally owned – businesses. Besides that, local businesses are owned and operated by our neighbors!  They care about and are invested in the well-being of our Southwest Florida community and its future. Read here for Simple Ways You Can Support Local Businesses. 

From Cape Coral to Naples. Here you will find all the blogs I have written on places and events in and around SWFL! My home is in Fort Myers, my kids go to school at Heights Elementary and I work full-time for the locally owned Sky Zone as the Regional Marketing Manager. So I LOVE our SWFL community and explore as much as I can with my kiddos.
