Minto Communities wins Best of the Best awards from Ideal-Living

Orlando, FL — Minto Communities was recognized with six awards from ideal-LIVING magazine's second annual 2017 "Best of the Best" awards showcased in their Summer 2017 edition. Nominations were submitted, and the magazine's editorial committee then researched and chose those communities they felt best represented the spirit of each category.

The 2017 "Best of the Best" honorees are organized into three broad groups — Destination, Life and Home — with winners named in a total of 24 categories. Minto Communities was recognized for four of their Florida communities as well as for floorplans and designs in the following categories: Best Sunset, Harbour Isle, a private island across from Anna Maria Island in Bradenton; Best Kayaking, The Isles of Collier Preserve in Naples; Best Neo Traditional Community, LakePark at Tradition in Port St. Lucie; Best New Community, Latitude Margaritaville in Daytona Beach; Best Floorplans for 50+, and Best Innovative Designs.

"Given the very positive response last year to our first 'Best of the Best' feature, we refined our selection process and created some new categories that we think better reflect the interests of our readers," said ideal-LIVING Editor and Associate Publisher Kelly Godbey. "The goal will always be to help retirees and families choose the place that's 'The Best' for them."
