About Naples, FL Attractions
Sandwiched between the clear aqua waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the sheer wilderness of the Everglades, Naples balances its exclusive resort character and all-natural persona with a diverse range of attractions that showcases its split personality.
Most visitors first discover its beachy attractions - a number of developed parks that feature everything from a duck pond to a fishing pier. City, county and state maintain the various parks in pristine condition with all the conveniences.
Away from the beach, a children's museum and waterpark complex and a zoo appeal to families. Throughout the Naples region - which covers from Bonita Springs to Marco Island and Everglades City - four major historic museums look into the bygones of Florida's final frontier.
Before entering the deep wilderness of the Florida Everglades, Ten Thousand Islands and Big Cypress National Preserve, you can bone up on the local environment at various nature attractions. Welcome centers in the region further interpret the exotic flora and fauna.
