About Naples, FL Shopping

The expression "shop til you drop" wasn't coined here, but it certainly applies, although most prefer to shop til they dine in the various shopping districts, where the food is as fine as the finds.

The most genuinely Naples shopping scene lies in its historic downtown area - one on Fifth Avenue South and another at Third Street South, a half dozen blocks away from each other. Mostly one-of-a-kind shops and galleries occupy so-called Old Naples.

Those looking for glam chains and big-box stores head to the various al fresco shopping centers or climate-controlled Coastland Center mall. From tourist souvenirs to name-brand watches and fashion, Naples shopping arenas have what you're looking to buy.
