fifties by developer Phil Sadowski and was incorporated in September
1957. The city is situated on 286 acres and contains approximately 1,400
units of housing. Many property owners make their homes available to
visitors for rent on a monthly or weekly basis. Our upscale quiet tropical
island atmosphere draws people from all over the world.
