Naples offers elegant resorts, golf, shopping, and art galleries; off its west coast Marco Island is the largest of the Ten Thousand Islands near the Florida Everglades.
Pearly beaches, a wealth of top-notch golf courses, elegant resorts, cutting-edge restaurants and gorgeous shopping centers define the appealing escape from work-a-day doldrums that Naples volunteers. Like its namesake, Florida's Naples dresses in Italian style that reflects in shimmering images from the plethora of waterways that brings an element of adventure to its air of privilege and affluence. In fact, one doesn't have to wander far from Naples' storied streets to plunge into the wildest and rawest of Florida nature in the Everglades.
Naples' Fifth Avenue South is the main drag and it has made a name for itself with one-of-a-kind shops, hip sidewalk cafes and clubs, artsy festivals, and a verve that doesn't stop. Third Street and the Avenues continues with more of the same wonderful street life and cafe society atmosphere. Gallery Row sells everything from glassworks by emerging artists to Old Masters. Pockets of shopping and dining glory collect throughout the town on different waterfronts, such as around the City Dock and the Waterside Shops at Pelican Bay.
Just steps away from the shopping beckon beaches made for basking leisurely or trolling for seashells. At the municipal beach, the Naples Pier juts into placid gulf waters, a perfect place for sunset strolling or daytime casting. Lowdermilk Beach is family friendly with volleyball and facilities. Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park remains in its most natural state, where loggerhead sea turtles nest in the summer and an observation tower surveys indigenous vegetation. Across the pass, Lely Barefoot Beach also combines the purposes of preserving nature and providing beach leisure.
Naples takes its role as nature warden seriously, and you can learn more about the environment at several attractions, including the Naples Nature Center, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, and Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center. All three introduce you to the area's rare and fragile Everglades-fringe ecology with aquariums, trails, habitat models and hands-on displays.
