Why Florida’s Paradise Coast should be your next holiday! 🌴
Florida seems to be known as a frequently loved vacation spot throughout the United States, but do you know about Paradise Coast?
It’s in the name, so naturally, this stretch of white, sandy beaches in the Southwest Florida region should be your next holiday! The Daily Mail tells you why below:
With white sandy beaches, the sub-tropical wilderness of the Everglades and restaurants galore – Florida’s Paradise Coast really is paradise.
And whether you’re looking for a romantic escape, a family getaway or an action-packed adventure break, it’s the perfect place for your next holiday.
The Paradise Coast is made of up of the chic city of Naples, the beautiful Marco Island and the sub-tropical wilderness of the world famous, UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Everglades.
It boasts more than 30 miles of soft, white sand beaches including Naples Beach, with its serene atmosphere and a pier to capture awesome sunset Instagram pictures.
While Marco Island is home to an array of family friendly beaches, with four miles of beautiful shoreline right next to beachfront resorts.
And of course, a vast coastline means uncrowded beaches with plenty of room for watersports. And there’s plenty of opportunity at both beaches for surfing, kayaking, jet skiing, windsurfing, paragliding, paddle boarding.
But if that isn’t enough activity, there are also more than 90 golf courses in the Greater Naples metro area, placing the region as number one in the US National Golf Foundation’s rankings of golf holes per capita.
Meanwhile for those looking for an unforgettable adventure, the subtropical wilderness of the Everglades is a world heritage site and ecosystem.
In fact, 80 per cent of the Paradise Coast region is made up of parks and nature preserves.
In the Everglades, holidaymakers can choose from the vast array of options such as airboat rides, wildlife tours or hiking one of many trails.
There’s also the opportunity to take a ranger-guided swamp walk strolling along the Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk or exploring the Ten Thousand Islands in a canoe or kayak.
When it comes to eating out, the Paradise Coast offers a thriving culinary experience and is renowned for an incredible variety of restaurants.
From street food dining to gourmet cosmopolitan restaurants, there’s something for everybody.
And remember to sample the seafood as the Paradise Coast is known as the Stonecrab capital of the world, with Stone Crab season May 15th – October 15th.
When it comes to the arts, downtown Naples is a cultural hub and the Naples Art Association is dedicated to enriching the community with visual arts and education.
While it does showcase a variety of exhibitions in its galleries, the non-profit organisation also offers many classes and workshops and hosts some of the area’s top annual festivals.
With no admission charge, be sure to add this stop to your downtown agenda.
Or if you’re in Marco Island head to the Historical Museum, which charts its history from the time of the ancient Calusa through the pioneer days in the early 20th century.
The hotly anticipated Key Marco Cat sculpture exhibit is on display now through April 2021.
While if you feel like flashing the cash, the Naples area is known for the finer things in life, and its great shopping is one of the destination’s most enticing aspects.
From eclectic, one-of-a-kind accessories at stylish boutiques to top fashions at major malls to discounted designer finds at outlet centres, you’ll likely strike gold as you search for treasure in the area.
Naples and Marco Island tops the ranking at the number one spot in the Gallup-Healthways State of American Well-Being 2017 Community Rankings, as well as being ranked the 11th “Happiest City in the U.S.” by National Geographic (read more about that here).
And what’s more, Florida’s Paradise Coast is located just two hours from Miami, four hours from Orlando and three hours from Tampa.
Meaning it’s the perfect place to be included in a Florida road trip or twin centre holiday.
