Naples OVERVIEW
Neapolitans have long fought to keep their hometown from becoming overdeveloped like many of the state’s East Coast cities. They treasure the unspoiled luxury, making it one of the most serene destinations you can visit. If you’re looking for barely-0clad supermodels and all-night clubs, keep driving east until you find Miami. Naples has a small-town feel, in part because there’s one main road—Tamiami Trail—running through its heart, and no expressways crammed with bumper-to-bumper traffic. But it’s a small town that’s also tres chic: There are fabulous restaurants, shopping that rivals Beverly Hills, nightlife—which, just 10 years ago, couldn’t be said without snickering—more than 70 golf courses (the most in the state), outstanding five-star hotels and the kind of beaches that are showcased on postcards. Lately, Naples has shaken off its sleepy reputation, attracting 30- and 40-something travelers with sophisticated tastes, along with boaters and hardcore kayakers.
