Blog: Spotlight on...Naples
RLC Residents: Here's a list of our top five things to do in Naples, Florida when you take advantage of our travel program and visit Bradford Square:
Naples Botanical Garden
Naples's number one attraction, the botanical garden aims to connect people with plants by conserving and researching the biological diversity of ecosystems, and inspiring visitors to value plants, gardens, and natural habitats.
Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary
This 13,000- acre sanctuary, long protected by the National Audubon Society and home to a plethora of wildlife, includes the world’s largest remaining virgin bald cypress forest. If you're lucky, you might see the Corkscrew Super Ghost Orchid in bloom, only discovered in 2007.
Stretching from Bonita Springs to Marco Island, the powdery sand of Naples’ beaches is one of Florida’s greatest allures. They offer a variety of activities and atmospheres from bird watching and boating to swimming.
You can’t visit Naples without strolling along the iconic Naples Pier. Built in 1888 to serve as a dock for freight and passengers, the pier had narrow-gauge train rails along its length that transported baggage and freight in the 1900s. Spot dolphins, watch fishermen, and bask in a stunning Florida sunset.
Shop Shop Shop!
Naples is home to a wide variety of shopping opportunities, from discount outlet malls to specialty boutiques. From the eclectic shops of Tin City to the upscale boutiques of the Waterside Shops, there are plenty of ways to participate in local retail therapy.
