Featuring endless horizons and world-renowned Gulf of Mexico sunsets, the destination is bordered by a 30-mile coastline ribboned with white-sand beaches and the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, which is the gateway to the Everglades.

Shopping experiences abound and include home décor and decorating ideas in the design district to luxury designer boutiques on 5th Avenue and 3rd Street South.

    • The Revs Institute is more than a car museum – it is a place to see society through a different lens. It is a working educational institution dedicated to the study, preservation, conservation, and restoration of historically significant automobiles.  It houses one of the largest private car collections in the world and showcases classics, such as the 1926 Bentley-3-Liter Super Sport Skiff; a 1924 Miller 122/91 Racing Car; a 1914 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Tourer; and an 1896 Panhard et Levassor Wagonette. But the stars of the show are the sleek and sexy 1995 McLaren F-1; a 1971 Porsche 917 K; a 1967 Eagle Gurney Weslake Mk1 Formula 1; and a 1950 Cadillac Series 61 Le Mans “Le Monstre.”  This is a “must-see,” once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the beauty and incomparable engineering of some of the world’s most treasured automobiles. The museum has limited admissions and viewing hours per day and tickets must be purchased in advance.
    • Multi-generational families enjoy the array of activities, attractions and events throughout the Paradise Coast, including the Naples Pier, Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens, Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples, Conservancy of Southwest Florida and Naples Botanical Garden
