Naples Overview

Set on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, this Florida getaway offers the flavor of an exotic Caribbean Island, all within the limits of the Florida coastline.  In Naples, the air is always warm, tempered with a slight breeze, even in the deepest throngs of winter.  Not only does Naples provide great year-round weather, but it also offers the quiet and relaxation you thrive for plus the adventure of a modern day playground.  In one direction, you’ll be lured by the sumptuous array of fine restaurants and shopping extravaganzas, while the other direction tempts you with the peaceful serenity of secluded islands and one of nature’s most hidden treasures – the Everglades.

It’s no wonder Naples has been named one of the “best places for a long life in the United States.”  Perhaps personalities like Steven Spielberg and Bill Gates have known this well-kept secret and for that reason have made Naples their home.  And those who have visited Naples continue to return year after year making it the most frequented of the state’s destinations. 

Naples is also alive with culture and blessed with live performance venues, museums and galleries that could rival any of those in large metropolitan cities.  In fact, the Naples Players is one of the top ten community theaters in the country.  And the Philharmonic Center for the Arts has served as host for important celebrities as well as national Broadway shows.  Among these was “Cats,” one of the longest running musicals. 

Naples is also known as the “golf capital of the world.”  If you’re in the mood to play a round of golf, you’ll find that in Naples you can choose among eighty championship courses.  How’s that for options?        

Even the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins choose Naples for a winter getaway.  And that’s a good thing if you’re a fan.  While visiting Naples, you too can spend time with these acclaimed teams and watch them as they practice. 

In Naples, there’s much to do and see.  There’s no doubt that Naples is the ideal place for shopping whether you’re looking for haute couture or resort wear.  But aside from retail therapy, you shouldn’t miss the amazing opportunities to visit Naples museums that work hard at preserving the region’s history.  At the Collier County Museum, for example, you can see the displays relating to Florida’s intrepid pioneers.  At other venues you can witness the era of technological advancements with the introduction of the railroad or view collections of world class art.

But Naples also prides itself for the efforts made in preservation of flora and fauna.  Sanctuaries and refuges for animals have multiplied in the past few years allowing for tourists to participate and become familiar with the programs.  At these establishments you may visit cougars, spend time with coyotes and even see wolves up-close.  And if you’re a nature enthusiast, aside from the great Everglades, the collier Seminole State Park is not something you want to miss.  

Naples is a slice of paradise.
