There is more to Naples than downtown. We lived in the Naples area for several years, and my husband worked there for five years. The city has changed since we lived there, and the demographic now includes families with children along with vacationers of all ages. I was able to explore Naples, Florida as a visitor recently, and I loved experiencing the dining options, bars, beaches, and local attractions.
Stay at the Inn on Fifth for unmatched luxury in a boutique hotel that is right in the middle of all the action on Fifth Avenue. You can easily walk to explore the various dining options and to shop various boutiques.
Enjoy a dining tour on Fifth Avenue with destinations like Truluck’s, Ocean Prime, and Sails. Visit the best Naples restaurants and enjoy dining al fresco!
Hit the beach. Downtown Naples has a beautiful beach that is usually not too busy. You can enjoy affordable parking and a white sandy beach. There is a pier, and it a great place to walk and enjoy the Gulf!
Visit a local brewery. Naples has a few local breweries including Riptide, Naples Beach Brewery, and Bone Hook.
Go shopping. There are so many options on 3rd Street, Fifth Avenue, and local shopping malls like Mercado, Waterside Shops, and the various outlets in the area.
Hit the road and visit Marco Island! Want to explore another beach? The Marco Island area is not a far drive, and the view is worth it!
