Naples Recommendations

Hiiii from Florida! I can’t believe it’s already been two weeks that I’ve been here – I’m loving it so much and never wanting to leave. When I first arrived, I asked you guys for a list of recommendations, and pulled it together – wanted to share here because lots of you asked for it too! I made a note by some of the spots that I’ve gone to and will update this as my time here goes, so bookmark it and I hope it’s helpful when you visit Naples someday!


  • Rocco’s Tacos – they make a mean margarita
  • Campiello’s – amazing Italian, they’re also known for their espresso martinis! Make sure you get there early, or expect to wait awhile.. they don’t do reservations.

    Don’t forget the Turtle Club for dinner! Farmers market in Vanderbilt Galleria on Saturday morning. Walking the greenway/Bakers Park. Make a kayak ride from Delmar-Wiggins and land on Barefoot Beach-stunning! Nauti Exposures are THE BEST for rentals and guided tours. Lived here for 2-1/2 years and just rented and kayaked with my daughter and what a wonderful experience. They made it so easy
