Naples blends an upscale, cosmopolitan vibe with the relaxing atmosphere of Florida's Paradise Coast. In downtown Naples, you'll find chic boutiques, eclectic galleries, and swank eateries in the 5th Avenue South and Third Street South districts. Throughout the region, you'll also find some of the nation's finest golf courses, including Old Corkscrew, TPC Treviso Bay, and Tiburon. The area is also home to incredible natural wonders. Pristine, white-sand beaches meet the teal waters of the Gulf of Mexico, providing plenty of relaxation and fun. Naples is also close to secluded islands and multiple wildlife sanctuaries and preserves, and provides easy access to the Everglades. We'll start our adventure at LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort, a wonderful match of lavish amenities and quiet tranquility.
