Going to the movies
There is always something a little special about going to the movies in the States, and he 11-screen Silverspot is as good a cinema as you will find with state of the art digital sound, leather seats and reserved seating.
The Silverspot is in the Mercato, a new 53-acre upmarket development of retail and restaurant outlets.
The Garden opened in late 2009 following a total transformation led by a team the world's best landscape architects and garden designers and a passionate band of staff and volunteers.
The Garden displays the plants and highlights the culture of regions between 26 degrees north and south, which includes Naples.
A thriving arts scene Naples gets the tag as number one small arts town in America and it's easy to see why.
Everglades City, a small town on the edge of Florida’s Everglades, is known as the Stone Crab Capital of the World.
Over 375,000 pounds of stone crab claws are farmed between October and May each year.
Gulf grouper, snapper and other fish are also brought in regularly to the city’s docks and many local restaurants serve the catch.
That Philharmonic Center for the Arts is a truly premier arts and performance centre that is based in Naples thanks to the overwhelming drive and commitment of Myra Daniels, its founder, president and CEO.
This dynamic woman, widow of real life advertising Mad Man Don Draper, has devoted the last 25 years to creating a three-story, 30,000-square-foot complex with 15 galleries dedicated to displaying world-class paintings, sculpture, drawings and other art forms.
As a performance venue the Phil also attracts the world’s finest musicians and entertainers, of all genres.
The town is also the western gateway to Everglades National Park and the staging post for the Everglades airboat tours and other guided tours of the Ten Thousand Islands.
The Everglades National Park Gulf Coast Visitor Center is the starting point for paddling the 99-mile Wilderness Waterway.
The Museum of the Everglades and Smallwood Store provides a real glimpse into the history of this area.
