Beautiful, white sand beaches with picture perfect sunsets are only part of the reason residents and visitors love Naples. The charming and sophisticated city will win you over from the start of your trip with the award-winning dining and shopping area of Fifth Avenue South, but this is only the starting point of what the area offers. Here are just a few of the places in and around Naples that we recommend when planning your trip.
Six Mile Cypress Preserve
The Six Mile Cypress Preserve is over 3,400 acres of a wetland ecosystem located in Fort Myers. It offers an ideal setting for honing in on your nature photography skills with native and exotic plant life and a myriad of animals to capture on film during your trip. If photography is not your forte, immerse yourself in the beauty of the preserve by taking a stroll on the 1.2 mile elevated, fully accessible boardwalk with five observation decks for wildlife viewing.
