There are so many beautiful areas in Naples FL that are just perfect for walking or jogging. I went for a walk this morning along Vanderbilt Beach Road and it was a delight. The sidewalk is landscaped and there were plenty of walkers, joggers and cyclists all heading west to the beach like I was.

My insider tip is that you can park your car in the shopping area at the corner of US-41 and Vanderbilt Beach Road and then walk to and from the beach area from there. It is about a 15 minute brisk walk in each direction.

I spent a lot of time walking north on the beach past LaPlaya Resort. It was a gorgeous morning! There were pelicans in the water, a few boats going by, and I saw porpoises playing.

What a great way to get exercise! My morning excursion lasted just under two hours and set the stage for a very wonderful day.
