The Historic District, 3rd Street South, personifies charm. Here the beach cottages of yesteryear and original buildings intersect with some of the most notable galleries, upscale shopping, and fine dining in Naples.
One street and a handful of avenues like eye candy- so abundantly planted there is a photo at many a turn. Gallery Row will delight with Harmon Meek Modern not to be missed around the corner. The Ridgeway Grille and Olde Naples Pub off the beat local treasures while sumptuous dining paired with outdoor entertainment entices as you stroll 3rd Street South.
Saturday Mornings Farmers Market is a staple as well as the “Third Thursday on Third” with outdoor music performances. Home to Palm Cottage, built 1901, one of a handful of preserved original structures where the Naples Historical Society is based with walking tours and more.
Naples’ founding Fathers dropped anchor in 1885 nearby where they, in short order, constructed the, now, iconic 12th Avenue Pier just 2 blocks off 3rd Street. Their hopes pinned on Naples becoming a world destination where folks could escape their harsh winters to this tropical paradise.
The heart of Naples extends 8 blocks away to 5th Avenue South with its origins sited in the Historic District commonly referred to as 3rd Street South. Enchantment is yours.
