A little Naples history
The history of this amazing town dates back to the middle of the nineteenth century, when the settlers Gordon and Higgins accidentally stumbled upon this corner, very much like the Italian Naples. That is why the town received the name Naples conforming to the Apennine brother.
Immediately assessing the advantages of the area, following the settlers, fat cats from the nearest states began to draw here, starting to invest finances in the tourism industry, and by the twenties of the 1900s the town had already gained fame as a prestigious winter resort. This did not go unnoticed by celebrities of the past century - it is enough to give the names of Greta Garbo and Harry Cooper.
Due to the mild climate and developed infrastructure, today Naples is considered one of the best recreation areas in Florida and the United States and is among the ten most expensive American cities. It has become a favorite vacation spot for rich and self-confident people who are accustomed to lead a measured life, enjoy nature and enjoy the benefits of the entertainment industry.
The main attraction of these places is the Everglades National Park with a unique ecological system consisting of subtropical thickets, covering small freshwater lakes and canals on all sides. Small islands abound with deciduous trees - mixed with saw-grass and preserved ferns from prehistoric times, and the riot of colors without orchids is in harmony with the color of various representatives of wild fauna - from the awesome huge alligators and graceful panthers to huge bears of grizzly and almost hand squirrels.
The coastal beach of Naples is a real paradise for fishing lovers, and romantics who want to taste can rent a yacht and go directly to the Gulf of Mexico accompanied by a number of curious dolphins. And of course you will not find such fantastic sunrises and sunsets anywhere else in the world!
It offers those who prefer the more mercantile pleasures of life - filled the counters of two luxury shopping centers located in the central part of the town. Already two quarters - Third and Fifth Avenue seem to be specifically allocated to shops selling antiques, and you can buy modern luxury in the magnificent boutiques located on the shores of the bay that bears the name of another Italian city - Venice. Downtown is surrounded by open-air shops selling trinkets and local souvenirs.
Naturally, in such a situation, an appetite is played out: even the most capricious gourmets will fully enjoy the delicious and varied food offered by the skillful cooks of local luxurious restaurants.
In Naples there are museums A-ta-Ti-ki and Kaler County, having visited which, history lovers will get acquainted with reconstructed exhibits belonging to Indians and first settlers who once lived here and can even touch the real pipe of the world, feeling for a moment the atmosphere of familiar novels from childhood Phenimone Cooper.
And here there is an art gallery and two theaters - stationary and wandering. The latter, by the way, was called up almost a dozen times in its nomination in South-West Florida.
Naples is the favorite place of wealthy Americans
Another noteworthy Naples are considered respectable elderly Americans, who are aptly nicknamed snow birds. They spend the whole autumn-winter season in these quaint places, gladly replenishing the budget of the town, spending time in exquisite golf clubs and on elite tennis courts. Seeing them on the beaches and streets of Naples, strolling slowly in white shorts and sneakers at the sheer price of a middle-class car, Ostap Bender's crystal dream involuntarily comes to the idea and I want to exclaim after him:
- Yes, this is not Rio de Janeiro. And then add:
- This is Naples, and it is much cooler!
