Return of the Natives
 
It wasn’t until I Iived somewhere else that I thought, ‘Oh, my God, Southwest Florida is amazing.’” —Sarah Fitzpatrick
 
This quote, from gulfshore life’s 2001 article “Return of the Natives,” shows coming home was a fairly radical idea, as young locals were escaping this little pond for much bigger ponds: more things to do and greater career opportunities.
Our article said: “The Gulfshore is where retirees arrive—by the droves—to enjoy the fruits of those years of labor. As for young, career-minded folks? While prevailing wisdom might once have held that success was best sought elsewhere, that’s no longer necessarily true.” 
 
In fact, our writer had to scramble to find five people who had actually left and returned. Today, it happens all the time. Entrepreneurs and CEOs move their headquarters here, young people return to raise families, and Southwest Florida natives with careers all over the world make this their second home.
 
In 1970, when Gulfshore Life first rolled off the press, it was written for retirees. No more. Our richly diversified demographic includes all ages of professionals, visitors, second-home owners and retirees. In response, our content has evolved, and today it’s richer than ever. We can’t wait to jump into the next 40 years. —Nathalie Lecoeur
