Old Naples

You can’t explore Naples without spending time in its signature neighborhood: Old Naples. Serving as the heart of the city, Old Naples maintains the timeless character that initially lured visitors to the area over a century ago. Colorful cottages and towering banyan trees line the brick-laid sidewalks, transporting you to a bygone era amidst the modern high-rises and contemporary homes that sprung up around it. Have a meal along the iconic Third Street South, where alfresco dining hotspots and old-fashioned ice cream parlors have maintained an ageless Main Street USA charm. Cap off your evening with a romantic stroll along the Naples Pier for postcard-perfect sunset views over the Gulf. It’s the perfect place to eat, shop, and immerse yourself into the nostalgic essence of Naples.

Unwind in Park Shore

For those in search of resort-style luxury, the upscale residential neighborhood of Park Shore is a must-visit. Located south of Old Naples and right along the beach, Park Shore boasts a scene of multi-million dollar beachfront mansions and swanky condominium complexes. When you need a break from the high-rolling lifestyle, stop by Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park for a peaceful walk along its pristine stretch of white sandy beaches, or try your hand at saltwater fishing. As the sun goes down, check out the lively restaurants and bars along the iconic Venetian Village, a taste of Venice transported right to Naples. With its high-end vibe and tropical ambiance, a visit to Park Shore is perfect for wannabe snowbirds and city slickers alike.

Pine Ridge

Nestled inland away from the bustling coast is the suburban enclave of Pine Ridge, a paradise for nature lovers and golf aficionados. Home to dense pine flatwood forests, freshwater marshes, and a vast network of navigable waterways, Pine Ridge is a naturalist’s playground. Traverse the pedestrian paths winding through verdant woods and wetlands teeming with native wildlife, or cast a line into one of the area’s many tranquil lakes. With over 14 top-rated golf courses on its doorstep, Pine Ridge is also a mecca for those looking to spend an afternoon chasing birdies amid lush Floridian scenery. Whether exploring the great outdoors or perfecting your backswing, this neighborhood is perfect for those seeking to get away from the crowds and embrace Naples’ natural splendor.

Fifth Avenue

If upscale retail therapy is on your agenda, make your way to the trendy Fifth Avenue district. Recognized as one of the chicest outdoor malls in all Southwest Florida, this bustling thoroughfare is lined with a staggering array of chic boutiques, jewelers, art galleries, and gourmet restaurants, all housed within a charming Mediterranean-style setting. After working up an appetite splurging on designer threads and accessories, treat yourself to an alfresco lunch at one of the sidewalk bistros before indulging in an artisanal gelato as you wander past opulent fountains and swaying palm trees. For visitors seeking an upscale yet laidback atmosphere, Fifth Avenue offers a delightfully unique shopping and dining experience matched by few other districts in Naples.

Tin City

Just a stone’s throw from Downtown Naples lies the quirky, open-air market of Tin City. A fixture of the city’s working waterfront for over a century, this historic district was originally developed as a village of ramshackle tin-roofed fishing cottages and boat works along the Gordon River. Today, Tin City has reinvented itself into a vibrant hub for local artisans, antique vendors, and dining establishments while preserving its old-world nautical charm. Stroll past colorful bungalows housing eclectic shops selling everything from handmade jewelry and ceramics to beachy souvenirs as the scent of fresh seafood beckons from the boardwalk restaurants lining the river. With its funky aesthetic and laidback ambiance, Tin City offers a welcomed escape from Naples’ posh side.

Corkscrew Village

Planning a trip to Naples with kids? You can’t miss the community-centric enclave of Corkscrew Village. This family-friendly neighborhood serves as an activity hub for residents and visitors alike with an abundance of parks, sports complexes, and entertainment options all within reach. Treat the young ones to an afternoon at THE DUNES Splash Park, an interactive water adventure inspired by the coastal dunes, or try your hand at mini-golf under towering oaks at the Golf Safari complex. Nearby is the popular Corkscrew Woodlands, home to a 2.5-mile boardwalk trail winding through lush forest teeming with fascinating flora and fauna. When it’s time to refuel, swing by the Village on the Green Shopping Center for a wide array of kid-friendly restaurants and stores bound to appease even the pickiest eaters.

Downtown Naples

For urbanites, Downtown Naples offers a chic metropolitan experience unlike any other in the area. This centralized district is where the laidback coastal vibe converges with big city energy and amenities. In between the fashionable high-rises and luxury apartment mid-rises peppered throughout Downtown, you’ll discover plenty of local haunts ranging from trendy gastropubs and wine bars to art house cinemas and music venues. On Gallery Row, you can peruse exhibitions displaying the works of renowned local artists before hitting up one of the many nightlife hotspots along Second Street once the sun goes down. For those who can’t imagine a city without world-class shopping, head to the Village on Venetian Bay, a Mediterranean-style bazaar of boutiques, cafés, and waterfront dining within walking distance. It’s the perfect spot to soak up Naples’ big city ambiance.

Naples Everglades

When you need respite from the downtown bustle, it’s time to retreat to the Naples Everglades and experience the true ecological essence of Southwest Florida. Comprised of vast wetlands, prairies, and pine flatwood forests, the Everglades area boasts some of the best hiking trails and wildlife viewing opportunities in the entire state. Wake up early to spot native species like the Florida panther, black bear, and a rainbow of wading birds as they begin their daily rituals in this unique ecosystem. Of course, no visit to the Everglades is complete without an airboat tour—this quintessentially Floridian activity allows you to glide across the seemingly endless “River of Grass” for unparalleled panoramic vistas. Paired with its tranquil rural communities of Old Florida homesteads, the Naples Everglades will leave you feeling worlds away from Naples’ glamorous coastal scene.
