The state’s tourism marketing agency estimates that more than 80 million people visit Florida each year. Our miles of beautiful beaches, sparkling Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean waters, and acres of parks and nature preserves offer abundant venues for outdoor enthusiasts. For those who like the excitement of world-class theme parks and attractions, Florida offers everything from Walt Disney World to SeaWorld to Kennedy Space Center. Millions of visitors also find their way to our Southwest Florida communities and beaches every year. Local residents embrace tourists and the economic benefits they bring.

At Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, we know that Southwest Florida’s abundance of attractions, sports venues, performing arts centers, museums, beaches, and shops are popular sites for visitors from around the globe.
