North Naples: a hidden gem on Florida's West Coast

The community of North Naples lies just a short distance from Naples and just south of Fort Myers, on the west coast of Florida. While the sandy beaches and mild winter climes are the biggest draws, there are many other experiences to be had if you dig around. The mighty Everglades National Park is just a short drive away and offers the chance for spotting some big critters like alligators, while the museums, botanical gardens and PGA golf courses offer something for everyone in the family. So, what are you waiting for? Score a North Naples vacation rental and head south for some fun in the sun.

Things to do

Fun for all ages in North Naples

It matters little if you're coming to stay in a North Naples vacation rental for a romantic getaway or a family summer break, there are things to see and do here for all ages. Kids will love nearby Naples Zoo, which houses critters big and small, including an island of cheeky monkeys. Alternatively, you could pack up a picnic and drive down to Naples Botanical Garden, a 170-acre space teeming with tropical flora. You can see 5 museums in 1 at the Collier County Museums, which chronicle the human and natural history of Florida, or head down to Artis to catch one of the Naples Philharmonic concerts.


Tear yourself away from North Naples' beaches

The sun-soaked sand beaches along the Gulf of Mexico are too difficult for many to drag themselves away from, particularly with a waterfront North Naples vacation rental. If you can, consider hopping aboard one of the daily sports fishing charters to try and reel in a trophy sailfish, or finding a sunny spot on the banks of the canal to cast your line. If angling isn't your bag, you could always book one of the tours to go manatee spotting or tee off at the nearby PGA Tour golf course. Those looking for a little retail therapy won't be disappointed by the chic boutiques.


Late spring is best for weather in North Naples

The best time to stay in a North Naples vacation rental is in the late spring, when the climate is dry, the temperature warm and the hurricane season yet to arrive. After the hot summer season, when accommodation prices skyrocket to take advantage of the school breaks, the fall months between September and early November can also be very agreeable, though you risk catching the tail end of the rains. Winters can get a little chilly, but it rarely snows, offering some respite for those living in below-freezing temperatures further north. To save a few bucks, try to avoid booking a rental over Christmas.

Natural features

Glide across the Everglades near North Naples

The 1,500,000-acre Everglades National Park is just a stone's throw south from your North Naples vacation rental. If you love to spot wildlife, it's almost criminal not to head down for a day on the wetlands. The park, made up of marshes, mangroves and forests, are home to an extraordinary number of species, including large leatherback turtles, gentle West Indian manatees and elusive Florida panthers. There's no better way to see the park than on the back of an airboat, where you'll glide across the waters catching glimpses of the lurking 'gators.
