NAPLES AREA INFO
Naples grew up around a seashore and a boat pier, which served as the town's lifeline in the 1880s. Well-to-do northerners built homes around the pier and in the neighborhood today known as Old Naples. With first the extension of a railroad to Naples in 1926, and the completion of the Tamiami Trail (Highway 41) two years later, the town grew eastward, but the heart remained where the first shell-paved roads once ran.
Fifth Avenue South
Strategically situated on Naples Bay and at the foot of Fifth Avenue South, there is nothing modest about this upscale oasis. Bayfront's colorful European architecture is an eye catching and memorable landmark in Old Naples. Strolling on brick-laden pathways, shoppers have intimate access to all their needs. Rare finds in the galleries and shops coupled with the impeccable cuisine of the restaurants take the Bayfront experience to a new level. There's always a new opportunity to enhance the day at Bayfront. Highly trained culinary teams work in their kitchens. The restaurants' gourmet fare is complimented by an atmosphere ranging from informal to lavish, depending on the diner's mood or taste. The shops are detailed in exquisite woodwork, imported stone, artistic displays and staffed by friendly, knowledgeable representatives to complete the "total" shopping experience.
