Naples shopping for your Florida Beach Vacations.
The best Naples stores and shopping malls when you visit Florida.
Shopping in Naples has to be some of the best in Florida. You have the unique designer shops to the big Naples shopping malls.
5th Avenue South
One district, located in central Old Naples, that the shoppers seem to love, and especially the woman is 5th Avenue South.
It is quite close to Naples beach so the wife or girl friend can leave the family or boyfriend on the beach while she shops.
Not only do you have the unique shops, but you also have the side-walk cafes, galleries, fine dining at the Naples restaurants and stunning Naples Florida hotels.
You have all of this along stunning palm-lined streets. Perhaps the only problem is the lack of convenient parking for Naples shopping.
Let us pretend for a moment and have a visual look at 5th Avenue on the video below.
Third Street South
In addition, nearby is Third Street South, which has gift boutiques, which are great when you are on a Florida beach vacation, and you want to take those gifts back to your loved ones.
When you visit Florida and you want to do some shopping for clothes, there are some 100 fine clothing stores on 3rd Street South.
Have a visual look around the area to see if you want to do some of your Naples shopping there.
You also have more Naples restaurants for you to have a nice lunch, a welcome break from your Naples shopping.
The area of Olde Naples is really good if you are into beautiful artwork, sculptures and fountains everywhere you turn.
This area is mainly galleries with some restaurants. However, it is a great visual treat so make sure you have comfortable walking shoes and a camera. You want to take the photo's home with you.
Another great place is Miromar Outlets, which is an outside mall and that means you can enjoy the Florida sunshine while doing your shopping.
Some of the stores at this mall are:
Leather wear stores - Coach, Dooney and Bourke, and The Luggage Center.
clothing stores - Diesel, DKNY, Dolce & Gabbana, Gap Nike, Gucci, Guess, Hollister, J Crew Kenneth Cole, Lacoste, Oshkosh B'Gosh, Polo and Puma.
Housewears - Pottery Barn, Chefs outlet, Crate and Barrel, Nautical Landing, Restoration Hardware, Waterford crystal and Williams-Sonoma.
There are many more outlets, and all the items are at a discounted price.
Better still why not just have a visual look around.
Are you looking for the luxury end of the market, when you visit Florida, for your shopping? You must go to the Waterside Shops.
It has to be the Gulf Coast's best and most sumptuous shopping and dining destination.
Here, you have the finest names in luxury retail and fashionable lifestyle.
Now if you can imagine, this is all set in a lush landscape of 30,000 tropical plants and flowering shrubs.
It even has a 550-foot hand laid rock wall with cascading water that uses lighting to a dramatic effect.
However, let's get back to the Naples shopping bit. It has more than 60 shops and restaurants. There are even a Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom there.
This lets you indulge in Naples shopping in the extraordinary while enjoying the Florida sunshine on your Flrorida beach vacations.
Have a look at this video, I am sure if you are into shopping you won't give this a miss.
I have to mention one other shopping mall that was right across from our hotel.
That was the Coastland Center, and I found for the normal Naples shopping or gifts for your friends or family it was great.
It has over 100 stores with Sears, Macy's, J.C. Penny and Dillard's for its bigger stores as well as lots of smaller shops and speciality stores.
There is a food court in the mall as well as many other restaurants in and around the mall.
As I said it is well worth checking out for your gifts or just looking at the shops. Take a couple of hours and you won't regret it.
By the way, right across the road is some more stores with one being a good discount shop. We bought just about all our gifts and presents there.
