Want to Plan a Unique Trip to Florida? Here’s How!

Naples, Florida boasts white beaches and beautiful sunsets. Located on the west side of Florida’s mainland, Naples is a town where you can relax and enjoy activities all in one place. Here are three unique ways you can enjoy Naples to the fullest!

 

Places to Stay

While in Naples, you most likely need a place to rest your head at night. Choose from the best of the area in hotels such as Trianon Bonita Bay, Embassy Suites by Hilton, Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa. While all these hotels are among the best, with include hospitable service and inviting rooms, there are a couple that stand out.

Hyatt Regency Coconut Point is probably the most luxurious of the hotels in the area. This hotel features a pool with four slides and a lazy river, a spa for your relaxation, and boasts a location that is right on the beach. Take a 15-minute ferry ride to the island of Estero Bay and watch dolphins swim and play in the sea. If you are an avid golfer, hop on over to Raptor Bay Golf Club where you can play a game on a professional golfing green. If you would like to spend the day on the beach near the hotel, the Hyatt Regency provides umbrellas and chairs for those who don’t want to carry beach gear with them.

The Trianon Bonita Bay is the other most popular hotel with travelers to Naples. It’s situated right at the lakefront entrance to the exclusive Bonita Bay community. It features a highly recommended hotel restaurant that locals and travelers alike make it a point to visit. And, if you’re traveling as a resident of Florida, you can even receive a discount. It’s a neat, local style place that really puts on the charm for everyone.

 

Things to Do

Florida holds some of the most beautiful beaches in the United States. Take time to watch the sunrise or sunset on the beach on one of the days you visit. You can also plan other fun excursions such as kayaking on the ocean, dolphin spotting, or snorkeling in the Gulf of Mexico. You will be able to see all sorts of wildlife such as sea turtles, manta rays, jellyfish, and starfish.

You can also plan a day to do parasailing over the ocean. This is where someone takes you out on a boat, fastens you to a parachute, and drives the boat fast as you sail into the air. You will be able to view Florida and all its beauty from up above.

If you want a grander excursion, why not take a day trip to Key West or the Sanibel and Captiva Islands? Here you can experience island life without being hundreds of miles away from the mainland.
