If you have one day to spend in Naples, you may just want to stay on the beach and soak up the sun’s rays. But if you’re not keen on lounging by the pool and instead want to explore the area, you can get a good feel for all that Naples has to offer in one day’s time.
To start, tour downtown and Old Naples, either with the Naples Historical Society, or hop a Segway and go the two-wheeled route. Either way, you’ll get a good feel for Old Naples, as well as learn some things along the way — other than where the best shopping is!
After your tour, take time to walk along Fifth Avenue South and window shop the boutiques and galleries filled with one-of-a-kind items. You might even stop by a sidewalk café for lunch or a cup of coffee to tide you over ’til dinner.
When it’s time for the sun to set, head to the beach — any beach, really — and join the tradition of toasting another day as the sun melts into the Gulf. After all, you’ve just spent a day on the Paradise Coast.
