Naples Florida Travel Guide
Nestled on the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida, Naples is well known for its world-class culture high-end shopping and sophisticated dining. While Saks Fifth Avenue, Niemen Marcus and other pricey retailers can be found throughout the posh, “Waterside Shops”, an upscale open-air mall located on Tamiami Trail, the real adventures are to be uncovered in the local culture and cuisine. Take a walk down Naples Pier, originally built on narrow gauge train rails as a freight and passenger dock in 1888, now a daily spot for visitor’s fishermen and the go to spot for gorgeous sunsets. We highly recommend that you try one of the over 40 original craft brews down at the Marco Island Brewery, a local hot spot for getting lost in Island living. If the beach and sun are more your speed then you’ve definitely come to the right place. Miles of endless white sand are littered with beachside cozy hideaways perfect for grabbing a refreshing cocktail during a sun-beat, lazy stroll through the surf. Everywhere, the air is filled with the sounds of island living and engaging conversation with local patrons becomes a hobby with Jimmy Buffet on daily tap. No matter what it is your adventure is seeking - a romantic getaway or simply looking forward to days of family fun building castles on the beach, Napes and Marco Island are sure to be exactly what you are looking for.
