Babcock Ranch is an incredibly forward-thinking, eco-centric city. It's taking shape in southern Charlotte County and is the "first of its kind" in many ways, including being completely solar/natural gas-powered and featuring the largest solar farm that FPL (Florida Power and Light) has ever constructed.
Founders’ Square, the charming center of town, is perfectly configured for festivals and events, and features places to eat, bicycle and watersports rentals, and a superb view of Lake Babcock. With hiking trails, kayaking and canoeing, fishing, biking, a playground, and even a dog park, Babcock Ranch offers a fun day for the entire family. And don't mind those little red cubes silently gliding by without drivers; the community is one of the first in the state to be approved for fully-autonomous electric vehicle operation.
