The Naples Experience
Award winning beaches provide the ultimate in traditional Florida white sand fun. Gentle waves, warm water, and plenty of sunshine make this Gulf coast paradise a place to remember. For those who love the pristine, picture postcard classic Florida beach style, Vanderbilt Beach will fulfill all expectations. For those who prefer a more natural type of beach, quiet and peaceful, ruggedly beautiful with that trademark Florida sugar white sand, Barefoot Beach, and be sure not to miss the butterfly garden, is a great choice. Also falling into the category of not overly developed and still a wonderful example of how beautiful a natural beach can be are the beaches at Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park. The Lowdermilk Beach and the beaches at the Clam Pass Recreation Area are excellent family beaches, nice for children.
Many of the outdoor activities in Naples do center around water and water sports. There's fishing, such as the chartered fishing tours offered by such places as Get Hooked Fishing Charters and Ms. B. Haven Fishing & Eco Charters. Eco tours and cruises are a great way to explore the local ecology and see the region's wildlife in its natural habitat. Notable providers of these sorts of adventures include Cool Beans Cruises, Island Sailing, and Sweet Liberty. However, not all outdoors activities are water-centered. There are numerous fine golf courses in the area and Naples Bicycle Tours and Segway Tours of Naples both offer a great way to see the local sights and communities.
After an active day of outside adventuring, you may want to head back to your Naples beach vacation rental home to freshen up before heading out to explore the cultural side of city. Naples has been nationally recognized for its devotion to the arts. Art lovers will appreciate the numerous art galleries to be found in the downtown area, particularly in the Broad Street, Third Street, and Fifth Avenue area, and the Naples Museum of Art shouldn't be missed by any art aficionado. The Philharmonic Center for the Arts offers an array of performing arts, ranging from ballet to opera to Broadway shows to orchestra performances.
Local eateries reflect a rich regional culture, with dining options galore. Tommy Bahama's Tropical Café is known for its Jamaican food and fun atmosphere. Other places offering an array of Caribbean cuisine include the Real Macaw, Gumbo Limgo, and Pollo Tropico. The Europia Bistro features Eastern European cuisine and those in search of quality French food will be sure to appreciate the culinary artistry of the chefs found in Cote D'azur, Cafe Normandie, and Escargot 41. Pelagos Café offers a variety of Mediterranean dishes, and Inca's Kitchen serves Peruvian food. These are just a handful of Naples's culinary possibilities.
