Just about thirty minutes away from Marco Island is Naples, a golf and beach mecca to the many who flock there every year. At one time a tiny fishing town, Naples has grown up over the past 50 years to become a real estate investors dream with property values exploding in the past five years. It’s no mystery why Naples is growing so rapidly either. Properties west of Tamiami Trail are just minutes or even steps from some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. Naples is also home to some 90 golf courses, most located within very exclusive gated communities surrounded by magnificent homes. Shopping and fine dining is a sport in Naples. Old Naples is home to the Third Street South and Fifth Avenue South shopping districts where upscale boutiques and fine restaurants line the street. Naples also offers fabulous shopping experiences at the Coastland Center Mall, The Waterside Shops and the Village on Venetian Bay. Naples is just a fabulous place to live or visit!
