Naples is famous for its excellent shopping and has an almost dizzying array of options. With the city's boutiques, galleries, high-end brands, hometown favorites, and other great retail options, you can shop till you drop in Naples. The main shopping area can be found along Fifth Avenue South, a historic corridor at the heart of Naples since the 1920s. Today it's one of the best shopping spots in the city and consists mainly of locally-owned and operated businesses. Retailers in Fifth Avenue South sell items like apparel, shoes, home decor, gifts, and homemade goods. Browse through the stores here, and you won't walk away empty-handed. You'll likely leave with a piece of art, some fragrant homemade soap, and other great merchandise. Not to be outdone, the Tin City also has historical roots and great shopping options. This area is imbued with distinct Florida charm and received its name from the collection of tin-roofed buildings. A slate of locally-owned retailers fills the tin buildings, selling merchandise like beach necessities, candles, children's clothing, and gifts. For those looking for a bargain or an antique item, Naples Design District is the place. Located on 10th Street North between Fifth Avenue North and Second Avenue South, the area features shops full of antiques, vintage items, and collectibles. On the opposite end of the shopping spectrum, brand name and high-end luxury goods are available at Waterside Shops. Home to Apple, Nordstrom, Pottery Barn, and other fine retailers, it's the place for a splurge. Don't worry, though, because Naples also has big-box stores like Walmart and Target for when you need anything else.

Naples and the rest of the Paradise Coast area have been a flourishing home for the arts and culture since the early days of Florida's tourism boom. Free to visit, the Naples Arts Association has been going strong for over 60 years with exhibits, classes, and various events. It's not the only art source, however, in Naples. In addition to the many independent galleries lining the streets of Naples, the city also boasts an arts-centric campus, Artis-Naples.

With 2 performance halls, the Baker Museum, and a classroom building, the Artis-Naples is one of the best sources to appreciate the visual and performing arts in Southwest Florida. The Baker Museum houses a world-class collection of modern and contemporary art and hosts 3-4 temporary exhibits a year. Making the Artis-Naples their home, the Naples Philharmonic regularly performs over 100 orchestral and chamber concerts with special series throughout the year. Naples doesn't lack live theatre either, as the city features the community theatre group The Naples Players. The troupe holds 200 shows year-round on 2 stages in Sugden Plaza. Their seasons are varied and include musicals, comedies, and children's theatre productions.

When the weather is dreary, or you just want a quiet day of reflection, visit one of Naples' great museums. The Collier Museum at Government Center is located in Naples and devoted to local history, beginning with Florida's prehistoric age. The museum center features exhibits on mastodons, ancient sharks, native plants, and the people, places, and industry that helped shape the Naples we know today. Also part of the Center is the Naples Depot Museum, located in a restored railway station. The Depot Museum museum focuses on the old railroad days and the other forms of transportation that expanded throughout Southwest Florida. The Golisano Children's Museum of Naples, also known as the C'mon, will entertain children of any age. Designed with an exterior that resembles a child's building creation, it's the perfect place to unlock imagination, creativity, and curiosity. The C'mon spans 30,000 feet with permanent and temporary exhibits, galleries, a cafe, a museum store, an outdoor maze, and other structures. The museum's visitors can do activities such as pretend to be a Vet at the Adopt-a-Pet Vet Clinic, travel through an Everglades playset, and climb a Banyan tree to the top.

When you're in a beach city like Naples, the possibilities for recreation are nearly endless. Naples has miles of pristine beaches of sparkling water and white sand just waiting for you. Clam Pass Beach Park is one of the most accessible and offers calm waters, making the beach perfect for families. The coastal habitat spans 35 miles and is a pristine piece of land. To preserve its natural beauty, you must access the beach via a boardwalk in a mangrove forest. From there, you're greeted with the serene waters of the bay. Swim, look for shells, or rent a kayak or other water equipment and spend the day in one of the prettiest parts of Naples. Like Clam Pass, Barefoot Beach Preserve is a natural beach and preserve. Located on an undeveloped barrier island and a vital habitat for several marine species, Barefoot Beach features a 1.5-mile beach for public access. Perfect for families is the Lowdermilk Beach Park. This scenic beachfront park has 2 children's playgrounds, a beach volleyball court, a duck pond, and of course, a beautiful beach. Grab a hot dog or drink from the concession stand, set up a beach chair, and watch the waves for a beautiful day in Florida.

Naples' environment is a natural treasure just waiting to be explored. The area's focus on conservation and education has led to hundreds of activities for visitors and residents. One example is the Rookery Bay National Estuarine. The Estuarine is one of only 29 estuaries in the entire country and features 110,000 acres of waters, uplands, and mangrove forest. It's home to sea turtles, sharks, and other marine creatures as a valuable part of the local ecosystem. Visit the Environmental Learning Center, and you can discover why this area is special by viewing the aquariums, reading displays, and traveling a nature trail. The Center will also rent kayaks and boats for you to tour the bay on your own or with a guide. The Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park is a slice of paradise with views of the Gulf of Mexico and gentle waves. Naples Beach Adventures is on-site to offer kayak, canoe, and stand-up paddleboard rentals for exploring the Water Turkey Bay and other bay areas in the park. Swimming is allowed within the park's designated zones, and you never know what you might find in a tidal pool. Take a hike on the beach trail and look for shells for a perfect beach souvenir. A barrier island is between Naples and nearby Marco Island, Florida, creating nearly 8 miles of untouched, undeveloped beach land. To access the island, you may board the Hemingway Water Shuttle on one of its daily runs. Want to stay out of the water? Visit The Bird Gardens of Naples. This free-to-visit attraction is a private sanctuary with over 100 birds from around the world. Visitors to the Bird Gardens will be able to interact, hold, and feed a variety of birds, plus learn all about their unique features.
