The von Liebig Art Center
The von Liebig, in downtown Naples, is a free entrance community art centre showcasing contemporary American art with an emphasis on Florida art.
From March through June 2010 the von Liebig stages Princess Diana: Dresses of Inspiration featuring gowns, shoes, handbags and memorabilia owned by Princess Diana.
Naples is home to several major land reserves, including the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge, Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, and Picayune Strand State Forest.
If Naples provides the sophistication, the Everglades and the Ten Thousand (mangrove) Islands provides Florida's natural wonder.
One of North America's unspoilt wild areas it takes in Big Cypress National Preserve, Everglades National Park and Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve.
The Seminole Tribe of Florida
The Seminole Tribe of Florida live on the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation and run swamp buggy eco-tours, airboat rides and a number of animal shows.
A rustic camping village provides native-style chickees for overnight stays.
Every spring the tribe stages the Big Cypress Shootout, a three-day battle reenactment and festival (26 to 28 February 2010), which honors the Seminole’s struggle and sacrifice to remain in their homeland during the 1830’s, when the United States was attempting to enforce its policy of Indian removal.
Collier County has 37 miles of barrier island coastline extending from Naples south to Marco Island and then deep into the mangrove forests of the Ten Thousand Islands and the Everglades.
These waters enable anglers to catch tarpon, snook and redfish in the backcountry or grouper, snapper and king mackerel in the Gulf.
Freshwater anglers can explore 1,500- acre Lake Trafford in Immokalee, famed for its crappie and bass action.
Most Florida anglers practice catch and release, ensuring there will be plenty of fish for the future and helping species with low populations to recover.
The Paradise Coast is known for its white sand beaches that stretch from Barefoot Beach Preserve at the northern tip of Collier County, throughout the city of Naples, to the deserted Ten Thousand Island region of the Everglades.
