3 Must-See Destination Spots In Naples, FL. (And 1 bonus spot even locals miss!)

Naples, Florida: 3 Must-See Destinations (with an extra at the end)

Naples, Florida, is an amazing place to visit for anyone looking for a vacation or a weekend away. With its white sand beaches, clear blue waters, and incredible restaurants and entertainment, it's no wonder why so many people come here every year.


But with so much to do and see in this beautiful city, it can be hard to narrow down the list of must-see spots. That's why we've put together a list of three must-see destinations in Naples that you won't want to miss! 

Naples Pier

The Naples pier is one of the most popular spots in town, located at the end of 12th Avenue South on the Gulf Coast. It is a great spot for fishing, watching dolphins swimming around, or just enjoying a beautiful sunset.


There is also a concession stand where you can grab some snacks and drinks while you take in the view. During certain times of the year, there are festivals at the pier, including fireworks shows and live music performances. 

Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary

This 11,000-acre sanctuary is home to hundreds of species of wildlife, including birds, turtles, and alligators. The boardwalk trail takes visitors through pine forests and wetlands, where they can spot animals in their natural habitat.


Guided tours are available for those who want to learn more about the area's natural history from knowledgeable guides, and we highly suggest you take one! Corkscrew Swamp also offers educational programming for children interested in learning more about nature conservation. 

Naples Zoo

The Naples Zoo is home to over 300 species of animals from all different parts of the world, including tigers, monkeys, sloths, and even Komodo dragons! Visitors can explore several exhibits that focus on different habitats, such as Africa Rocks or Mangrove Forest Walkway, which allows guests to get up close with some amazing animals.


There are plenty of interactive activities (like animal encounters) which allow kids (and adults) to get even closer to some of their favorite creatures! 


.......(Drum Roll Please) And Now Our Favorite Locals Only Bonus Location!

The Naples Botanical Garden (our bonus option!)

Ok, we admit, it isn't a total "Locals Only" spot; tourists love it too! However, it's often missed on people's "Must-Do" lists.


The Naples Botanical Garden is a beautiful oasis spanning 171 acres. It features a variety of landscapes and gardens showcasing the unique flora and fauna of the tropics.


Some of our favorite highlights include the:

  • Butterfly gardens
  • Banyan groves
  • Orchid gardens
  • Bamboo stands

There is also a Haitian garden that offers a cultural history lesson through art, culture, and traditional plants, including royal palms. Locals know the gardens for their breathtaking designs and colors, making them a truly remarkable and unique botanical garden experience.


For family travelers, the garden offers special experiences for children, such as story time and edible hillsides, which allow them to learn about nature and sustainability. The Naples Botanical Garden is a wonderful place to relax and explore the beautiful scenery. If you are looking for an extraordinary botanical garden experience, consider visiting the Naples Botanical Garden.


Naples has so much to offer its visitors! From breathtaking sunsets at the 

pier to exploring exotic wildlife at the zoo – there's something for everyone here! We hope our list helps you make your next trip even more enjoyable by getting you started on exploring some amazing sites in this beautiful city!
