Naples Florida and Tourism

Updated on January 14, 2012

Tourism is huge in Naples, and not the just the everyday mom, pop and kids kind. Naples is the playground of some very wealthy tourist who jet in to golf, shop, eat, play and gather to watch one of our beautiful sunsets. Naples has eco cruises, dolphin watching, parasailing, water parks, a zoo, museums and botanical gardens just to name a few.

Rates around town go up to match the market and if you know anyone in the service industry, they are ready to tell you about that big tip; reminds you of fishing stories where they complete to have the greatest tale.

And that is what makes Naples so great. The area reflects everything grand and fun about life from jet skiing to antiquing to fine dining. If jet skis aren’t your cup of tea for fun on the water there are kayaks, canoes, pontoons, deck and bow boat to rent or take a water cruise and just sit back and enjoy.

Don’t want to walk while touring around Old Naples? Hop aboard a trolley or rent a segway or bicycle. Our winter temperatures are perfect for being outdoors.

Naples is a short distance for day trips to the Everglades, Key West, Tampa, Ft. Myers, Miami and Ft. Lauderdale.

Explore a private island in the Everglades by taking an airboat tour. Hop on the Key West Express for a boat trip to Key West, Marco Island or Ft. Myers. They boast that getting there is half the fun!

Take a trip aboard The Dolphin Explorer and be part of the dolphin project through National Geographic’s Geotourism Challenge. There is a naturalist on board to answer all of the kids (or adults) questions.

And then there is the beach. Tourist and locals alike gather like seagulls to watch the day come to an end.

So what are you waiting for? Come join the fun by making Naples your next vacation adventure.

      I do agree that Naples, Florida is a beautiful place to visit. There are so many things to do and see. Fifth Avenue is filled with restaurants, shows and I particularly loved Shaw Gallery with my favorite artist represented there.. Alvar. It is not inexpensive to live or vacation there but the beauty ...I remember seeing the sunsets on the beach and the green lite with everyon clapping. They did tear down one of my favorite hotels with the thatched roof bar. Did a great job on the hub and getting people excited about visiting the city.
