What are you looking to do today? With so many choices, Naples residents must ask themselves this question every day and the decision is never an easy one.

You could visit a museum, try the new restaurant down the street, go dancing or even head to the beach. Fortunately, in a city this cool, you can have it all. Below is our preferred Naples itinerary – whether you keep it or change it up, we are sure you’ll have fun.

First stop…cross over the bridge of the Gordon River where the Tamiami Trail takes a right turn to the north. Here, you will find yourself on the edge of Downtown Naples. And this is just the beginning of a fun, exploratory day in this Southwest Florida Gulf town. As you continue to explore, be sure to head to the foot of 5th Avenue South to enter Bayfront—an upscale oasis of shops, restaurants, residences and a beautiful hotel. Take in the ambience and character of your surroundings—the old-world columns, arched entryways, open balconies, as well as the rounded awnings that grace the buildings above the marina. You may even feel like you are strolling down the streets of Italy with its brick-laden paths, plazas with fountains, hi-fashion boutiques, art galleries and cafes.

Another must see of this coastal town is 3rd Street South where you will also find an abundance of high-end galleries, antique shops, boutiques and fine dining with a variety of culinary delights; this is the perfect place to sample the many restaurants that line the streets. We know it is impossible to see and taste everything in just a day or two, so you will definitely want to plan on coming back again to visit our quaint town!
