|"Waiting for a Launch" MM Sikes|
Once named Survey, Bonita Springs began to grow once construction of the Tamiami Trail began in 1915, connecting Tampa with Miami. The road is now the southernmost section of Rt. 41.(Last summer the Passenger to Paradise was photographed in front of a sign in northern Wisconsin denoting the beginning of Rt. 41.)
Alligators are often found along this route between Miami and Naples which is one lane each way and has no fencing to keep the wildlife out.

The Passenger to Paradise enjoyed her visit to the Bonita Springs area because it is so different from the east coast beaches with which she is most familiar.
Do you enjoy cosmopolitan beach areas or something a little bit more rugged? Do you want a beach lost beneath a sea of umbrellas or a community with history?
