Trying to decide where to take your next vacation?
Florida is always a popular destination for vacationers, but it also offers a variety of different types of getaways, so it may be hard to narrow down where exactly in the state to go.
Have you considered the town of Naples? No matter what your interests are, there are plenty of things to do in Naples Florida. Take a look at some of our top picks for attractions and activities!
Visit Some Feathered Friends
Did you know that Naples is along one of the most commonly traveled flyways for migrating birds?
Birdwatchers flock to the area to see over 200 species, some of which are year-round residents. Come see wood storks, warblers, summer tanagers, red-bellied woodpeckers, ibis, and a favorite with the kids: sandpipers.
Some of the best places near Naples to see a variety of birds are Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, Audubon Corkscrew State Park, and the many sanctuaries, refuges, and parks of the Everglades.
The 12-mile Bird Rookery Swamp Trail is an excellent destination to glimpse not just birds, but also otters, alligators, panthers, bobcats, and white-tailed deer.
Shop Until You Drop
Tin City may be one of the most unusual shopping centers in the country. It features tin-roofed buildings, several dozen eclectic shops and restaurants, and the Waterfront Marketplace, a former clam shelling and oyster processing plant that dates to the 1920s.
For a more upscale shopping experience, head to the Village on Venetian Bay, an open-air mall that offers haute cuisine, high fashion, art, jewelry, a Sunday green market, and many special events.
Let Your Inner Child Come Out and Play!
Families can find plenty of things to do in Naples Florida, too. The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples boasts hands-on and interactive exhibits that you’ll be hard pressed not to check out for yourself. Or slip on your swimsuits and head to Sun-N-Fun Lagoon, a water park with plenty of slides and pools.
The Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens is both a zoo and a botanical garden. This means that it’s much more than just a place to see some wild animals – although it is home to some of the world’s most interesting creatures.
Enrich Yourself with Education
Who says learning must be boring?
A wealth of museums in Naples prove otherwise. First, there’s the Collier County Museum. Here you can learn about local history, ranging from prehistoric mastodons to the culture of the Seminole people.
The Naples Depot Museum showcases the tradition of transportation in Southern Florida. See trains, swamp buggies, Seminole canoes, mule wagons and more.
Another one of the best things to do in Naples Florida? Visit the IMAG History and Science Center.
Eat, Drink, and Be Merry!
Take a guided walking tour that lets you taste chocolate at cafes, boutiques, and bakeries. Visit the Naples Beach Brewery – the first microbrewery in the region – and sample some of their 19 beers.
Of course, there is no shortage of great places to eat in Naples. They range from waterside clam shacks to world-class bistros. What could be better than watching the sun set over the water while sipping a cocktail and having a nosh?
