Naples, Florida is one of the most desirable locations in the state for those who want to enjoy the unique opportunities to enjoy a lifestyle that is the envy of many not only in the United States but across the world. Naples boasts attractions that make it a naturally beautiful place to live – and communities like Mediterra continue to attract property investors from across the U.S. – further afield.
So what is it about Naples that makes it so attractive to those who want that unique lifestyle? Ofcourse there is that beautiful Florida weather. With an average of 300 days of sunshine every year, it is no wonder that people for colder parts of the country flock to the state.
Of course, the undeniable charms of the many world-class beaches in and around Naples exercise a siren call for both those who want to sunbathe – or those who wish to enjoy Mother nature at her finest. The dining opportunities are myriad, and the food is fresh, seasonal, and exceptional.
However, there is another undeniable attraction of making a home in the community of Mediterra real estate – and that is the exceptional shopping opportunities that are available in Naples. For those who are trying to make up their minds on where to undergo a little retail therapy while in Naples – here are some of the best venues to exercise that right.
1. Coastland Center.
A beautiful collection of shops, dining destinations, and entertainment venues. With over 100 local attractions it is the perfect center for both tourists and locals alike. Choose from restaurants such as ‘Island Vybz Carribean Cuisine’ or family favorites such as Haagen Daaz. Anything from pizza to fine dining is available. Stores such as Abercrombie & Fitch and Aeropostale allow visitors to scratch that retail itch.
2. Waterside Shops.
Beautifully designed with water features that provide a soothing retail experience, this is a collection of retail establishments that tend to focus on the upper end of the market (for example, Louis Vuitton and Gucci). However, that said some outlets will prove goods and services across a full band of price points (Nordstrom’s, Archeology). Shaded walkways and plenty of public spaces with lots of seating make the entire shopping experience into a pleasure, rather than a pain. Many casual dining options, including pizza outlets and others, make the experience even more relaxed.
3. The Village Shops on Venetian Bay.
Beautifully designed and set in beautiful surrounds, this is one of the premier shopping destinations In Naples. The Mediterranean architecture fits in perfectly with the ambiance of Naples. Great boutique shopping, some new art outlets and excellent dining opportunities (indoors and outdoors with many having that ‘waterside’ ambiance that is so much a part of Naples life) make it more than a shopping center – it is an experience.
4. Tin City.
For something a little different when it comes to shopping experiences, Tin City is a great place to enjoy a market ambiance while having the opportunity to explore a waterfront boardwalk. The attraction for those who enjoy something a little different – and the boutique experience is plain to see as one explores the three buildings that make up this shopping destination. However, the waterfront location also provides ample opportunity to book fishing charters and some beautiful salt water based sightseeing tours. An absolute must for both visitors and locals alike.
Shopping in Naples is part and parcel of living in one of the most desirable locations in the United States. Although it’s difficult to tire of the beautiful natural attractions of the city – sometimes some retail therapy does not go amiss. More information about this community could be found here.
