A Naples Florida vacation is the perfect way to relax and enjoy the sun and surf. It has all the friendliness and casual charm of a small town and yet there is a definite cosmopolitan flavor.
Enjoy miles of pristine beaches by strolling, shelling, swimming and sunning. Opportunities for golf, tennis, boating and kayaking are plentiful. Stop by the famous Naples Pier. It is a scenic spot for vacation photos that are sure to make your northern friends wish they were with you!
There is an abundance of outdoor activities available for every interest. You will find bike rentals to shuffle board to jet skis to wind surfing and much more to make your vacation great. The weather in Naples is usually mild allowing plenty of opportunity for outdoor fun.
If you want to experience nature beyond the beach during your Naples Florida vacation, you have many attractive choices. Audubon operates Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Located north of Naples, this is a must if you have the time. Walk through the natural setting on a well-maintained boardwalk. You will see otter, deer, raccoons, alligators, turtles and plenty of birds in their natural habitat.
The Botanical Garden is located close to downtown Naples. You don’t have to be a horticulturist to enjoy and appreciate the magnificent gardens. Last, but not least, you can arrange to take an airboat ride through the Florida Everglades, the ultimate Florida experience!
Downtown Naples reflects the charm and ambiance of the area. Shopping, outdoor restaurants, the Naples Pier, marinas, and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico are in close proximity to each other. The City of Naples has first-rate public parks that visitors as well as residents can enjoy.
The main drag is Fifth Avenue which intersects Third Street. These two downtown streets are located in “Old Naples” and are populated by many fine shops and restaurants. This area is the heart of Naples. You are just as likely to see Bentleys and Rolls Royce as bicyclists sporting straw hats. This is the place to stroll, shop, eat, and people watch.
