Welcome to Naples

A premier, upscale destination along Florida's scenic Gulf Coast

Simply saying the name Naples, with no other qualifiers, invokes images of opulence and luxury. Naples occupies rarified air among coastal cities in Florida - or the U.S., for that matter - and is mentioned in the same breath as such Southern Florida glamour cities at Palm Beach, Key Biscayne, and Key West. It's of little surprise that people with means flock here to take advantage of the coastal setting and affluent lifestyle. 
Naples is also surprisingly down to earth. Its small footprint covers only 16.6 square miles, a quarter of which is water. Though it was settled in 1886 and incorporated as a town in 1925, then later in 1949 as a city, the population has never peaked above 25,000. It's a small town that lives big, with world-class shopping, dining, golf, and pristine white sand beaches.
Though there's history here, housing in Naples carries a more forward-thinking aesthetic. Residences are modern or contemporary in equal measure, with the majority on large lots and sporting a distinctly seaside Florida flare. High-end condos are also featured heavily in Naples, with many boasting outstanding amenities and stunning water views.

What to Love

  • Steller, high-end dining and shopping
  • One of the greatest collections of championship golf courses in the country
  • Unique, highly livable neighborhoods fit for any lifestyle

Local Lifestyle

Naples has long proven popular with retirees. Between the endless opportunities for golf, the high-end dining, sense of community, and generally relaxed and laid-back atmosphere, it is easy to understand why Naples is regarded as a top 25 place to retire in the U.S. 
That said, families are discovering there's much to love about the city's high standard of living. There are excellent schools and access to many outdoor activities. The area as a whole is ideal for remote workers or those who only need to commute to more vibrant employment centers a few times a week.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Naples is widely known as a retail destination. The excellent Coastland Center and The Village Shops on Venetian Bay are enough to outclass most other shopping centers. Naples, however, takes your shopping experience a few steps further.
In the city’s celebrated and historic downtown district, Third Street South hosts over 100 boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants, while Fifth Avenue South features high-end fashion boutiques, art galleries, gift and jewelry shops, cafes, and restaurants. Want a bit more? The Waterside Shops in the city's northernmost point includes a Tesla store and high-end brands such Gucci, Hermes, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
To satisfy the hunger your high-end shopping excursions will bring about, head to Campiello Ristorante & Bar on Third Street South for outstanding Italian fare. The Ritz-Carlton houses the casual, open-air, and family-friendly Gumbo Limbo. For inspired farm- and sea-to-table food, The Local offers an upbeat and delightful dining experience. Finally, take in a gorgeous sunset while sipping your favorite cocktail at Baleen at the LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort.

Things to Do

As with much of Southwest Florida, being close to the Gulf of Mexico is a huge draw for residents and visitors of Naples. The city's ten-mile-long namesake beach is one of the state's cleanest and most pristine stretches of sand. The historic Naples Pier is the perfect spot for fishing and sightseeing.
On the second Thursday of every month, Fifth Avenue South plays host to Evenings on Fifth, a celebration of good music, good food, and good shopping up and down the historic avenue. Additional events in Naples' celebrated downtown district include the Cars on Fifth annual car show and the Christmas on Third holiday celebration.
Celebration Park provides year-round entertainment with a waterfront bar, food truck park, and frequent live music. For golf enthusiasts, Naples might as well be heaven with a collection of over 75 courses mere minutes from the heart of the city. The top courses include TPC Treviso Bay and Tiburon Golf Club, which hosts the LPGA's year-end Tour Championship.


The Naples community is home to many outstanding educational institutions, including:
