Looking for life filled with excitement? Then living on the Paradise Coast may be your next, best move!
Break out a map of Florida and draw your finger all the way down the state. Stop when you get near the end, because right there is Florida’s best-kept secret. This is the Paradise Coast, known for its diverse activities, extensive history, and the special way that it offers a life filled with excitement. It’s part of the reason why people make their best move and love coming here so much. In fact, the best part about this place is the variety of activities that match any taste.
If you’re looking to get a life filled with excitement, Naples is the perfect place to be. You’re in one of the oldest parts of the state, after all. Places such as Fifth Street South are proof of that. Look closely as you walk through the avenues-some of the buildings are from the last century. One of Naples’ oldest buildings is still standing today, and you can visit it! The Historic Palm Cottage has been carefully preserved by the Naples Historical Society and has gained a spot on the National Register of Historic Places for its careful depiction of what homes and lives were like in Naples when they were first built. Having served as a vacation home for Walter Haldeman, editor of the Louisville Courier-Journal and founder of Naples, the house utilizes building materials and practices reflective of the era and area. Step through the museum and learn of the founding of Naples, the people who made it what it is today, and the cottage’s unique construction.
Some people like to try and get close to the Paradise Coast’s wild side. After all, the conservation efforts of local workers and volunteers have helped to protect the species that live here. That’s what makes the 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge so gorgeous. Humanity has worked hard to protect these small islands that make up the park, and it shows with every golden sunrise and white sand beach that you find there. One of the best ways to see the flora and fauna of the area is with an “Eco-tour” of the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. Its status as one of the few undisturbed mangrove estuaries means that the animal and plant species were able to grow and change without human impact. No matter when you take this mesmerizing tour, you’ll spot different amazing Florida wildlife: little blue herons, red mangroves, and even the occasional owl.
The Paradise Coast isn’t all historical refinement-it also hosts a fun, creative side as well! Just stop by Artis-Naples any day of the week, and you’ll see what we mean. You’ll know it even better once you hear a performance by the Naples Philharmonic or see a gallery showing by local artists. See the Paradise Coast’s funky atmosphere all on display at the Naples Christmas Glow Run 5k, where runners and walkers will have an opportunity to get themselves close to the lights! What makes this run unique is that before competitors start, they’ll be given some holiday lights. As they make their way around scenic Lake Avalon, they’re allowed to stop at any moment and decorate with their lights. What results is a glowing, vibrant trail filled with celebratory competitors!
