Bonita Springs Jobs: Overview
Looking for Bonita Springs jobs? Here's what you need to know about the area. What started as a campsite near a medicinal spring in Southwest Florida is now an upscale community and destination for beach lovers. The 1870 Army Corps of Engineers set up camp to survey a river that had a spring the local Native American tribe believed to be medicinal. It made perfect sense to call the area "Survey" and the river "Surveyor's Creek." But when a Tennessee man named J.H. Ragsdale bought 2,400 acres around Survey in 1912, he wanted to develop the area into a village. He decided to rename it Bonita Springs after the medicinal spring, while the "creek" became the Imperial River.
Today, that village is a thriving community with popular beaches, state parks, and attractions like the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, the Naples-Fort Myers Greyhound Track, and the Hertz Arena that hosts concerts and well as the local hockey team: the Florida Everblades. If you'd like to survey Bonita Springs on your job hunt, take a look at other coastal cities in Florida like Fort Lauderdale, Cape Coral, and Fort Myers, as well.
