All about Naples
Naples is the crown jewel of Southwest Florida. Well known for its sun-drenched white sand beaches along the Gulf of Mexico, Naples abounds with world class shopping and dining, fishing, boating and challenging golf courses. You don't have to go all the way to New York or Paris to find great art and culture, especially when the treasures of Naples are right at your doorstep. Named in 2005 by travel author, art critic, and author John Villani as the number one small arts town in America, Naples abounds with cultural attractions for every interest. Although there is no shortage of upscale shopping and trendy restaurants and boutiques, just a short drive away from the downtown Naples area you can also discover a totally different environment in the seclusion of the ten thousand islands and the untamed tropical wilderness of The Everglades.
Naples is a favorite destination of water lovers and recreationists, boasting one of the nation's best sandboxes and calmest seas. Pristine parks await sports enthusiasts and picnickers with open green spaces and plenty of recreational facilities. Whether you have a passion for golf, fishing, shelling, shopping, bird watching, wildlife viewing, boating, the beach or the arts, you’ll find plenty of choices in the Naples area. Blessed with a mild winter climate and a summer tempered by Gulf breezes, Naples has grown from a sleepy Florida town in the 1970's to a sophisticated city in the 21st century with a growing world wide fan base. Midwestern in feel, Naples is as welcoming and friendly to visitors and new residents as if you lived in Ohio or Indiana. Known for friendly and down to earth residents, the west coast of Florida definitely has a different feeling than found on the east side of the state.
