Things To Do In Naples
Most people begin their Naples explorations at the beach, and among the favorite beach explorations are: Delnor-Wiggins State Park and Naples Municipal Beach and Pier. The former takes you away from city life to experience the region's rich bird populations while the latter is within walking distance of some of Naples' best shopping and dining.
The beach, however, is not Naples' only habitat environment. Much more extensive and teeming with wildlife, Florida Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve and Ten Thousand Island National Wildlife Refuge forever preserve vast acreage of environment that ranges from sea and estuary to marshlands and hammock forests. Naples' many nature attractions interpret the mind-boggling range of public lands and conducts tours and programs for satisfying interaction with nature.
Between beach and wilderness lies a most enchanted, thoroughly civilized land of wealth-driven culture, shopping, dining and golf. At the area's various historical museums and sites, learn how the town developed from Florida's final frontier to a mecca for the rich and famous seeking winter warmth.
