Bigger than some states, Florida's Paradise Coast offers you a broad, diverse array of choices for shooting, and communities experienced and welcoming to all types of productions.
Welcome to Paradise
Located in Southwest Florida and composed of three main areas - Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades - the region offers broad beaches, quaint Mediterranean-influenced resort towns, ranchlands, waterfront mansions, swamp-hidden villages and more. The area is also your gateway to Florida's fabulous Everglades, providing swamps, rivers, wildlife and Native American culture.
Easily reached by airports and interstates, the area is easy to get to. And once you're here, easy to get around. You'll find a broad range of accommodations and dining options. And it's all in an area without the congestion you find elsewhere in Florida.
With some of Florida's best sunsets and 52 weeks of superb weather a year, it's easy to see why the area is known as Florida's Paradise Coast.
