More weather by AccuWeather®

Naples is a diverse location bringing people together from everywhere to live, work and relax in a sun-drenched atmosphere.

Naples is a city of some 24,000 people living in a tree-lined mix of residential and commercial streets hugging the Gulf of Mexico. Naples now also refers to the Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) comprising all of Collier County to the east. In terms of land areas, Collier is the largest of Florida's 67 counties, with Cypress

Swamp state preserve and Everglades National Park accounting for much of its 2,000 plus square miles.

The Naples area is truly the cultural center of southwest Florida. With over 35 arts organizations and more than 100 art galleries, Naples has some of the finest cultural offerings available anywhere.

The cultural diversity of the area attracts professional artists and musicians like a magnet. In fact, over 1,000 visual and performing artists call this area home. Don't be surprised if you encounter an artist painting at water's edge or with canvas in hand while you explore the Everglades.

From magnificent performance halls to unique art galleries, Naples has a rich variety of choices for cultural activities. We have literary societies, lecture series and excellent chamber music concerts. You can visit historic homes, working artists' studios, outstanding community theaters..even a teddy bear museum! There are street festivals, outdoor art fairs, performances by dance troupes and concert bands. Nature and art are brilliantly intertwined at a series of museums. Catch a free jazz concert in the park, or enjoy the magnificent Naples Philharmonic Orchestra..it's all right here!

For most of the past 20 years, Naples has hovered near the top of the list of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas of the country. Neapolitans are a happily prosperous and vital group. Their median age is 44.1 -- more than two years younger than even a year ago, reflecting the ongoing migration of working-age men and women.

Naples enjoys the benefits of lying in a subtropical zone. Naples is known for its "Mediterranean" climate, one of long, sultry summers and dry cool winters. The average temperature is in the low 70s during peak season (Thanksgiving through Easter) and even during the summer months, Naples rarely goes much above 90 degrees.

Naples is an accommodating town for its seasonal residents and visitors from around the country and the world. All price levels are represented in Naples 6,000 hotel rooms, from deluxe accommodations, to cozy inns. All of the area's hotels and motels offer a style of hospitality that has characterized Naples since the first hotel opened here in 1888.

Naples is a shopper's and diner's paradise. Naples' shoppers are a discerning group of residents and visitors from across the state and around the world. Day-trippers drive in with their decorators to search for antiques and custom-made furniture. Around Florida, Naples is known as the place to find superb jewelry, elegant resort wear, and special gifts and home furnishings, often made by local hands. And, no matter what's on the menu, no city in Florida offers more options for dining.

Naples is a great place to do business. As the population has grown, so has the economic vitality of the area. Collier County's population grew 65 percent during the 1990s. During the last three years of that decade alone, retail sales were up 30 percent, to $4.3 billion. The workforce increased by 37 percent in the '90s. Naples is projected to be fourth among all US cities for projected employment growth for 1997-2002. Despite these big numbers, Naples is an entrepreneurial town. Start-ups are high, as evidenced by more than 3,700 new occupational licenses issued during 2000.

Naples provides excellent educational opportunities for all ages. New elementary and high schools are being built to accommodate the influx of families moving to the area. The greater Naples area also boasts several excellent opportunities for advanced education: Florida Gulf Coast University, Edison Community College and International College and the Lorenzo Walker Institute of Technology.
