About this book
Naples celebrates the story of one of southwest Florida's most renowned beach resorts, from its tenuous beginning in 1885 through the tumultuous year of 1960, when Hurricane Donna nearly destroyed the town once hailed as the "Summerland in Wintertime." Founded as a place where "invalids can escape the chilling blasts of winter," the distant paradise was accessible only by boat, and by 1890, the new town boasted a pier, the Naples Hotel-and little else. With train service arriving in Naples in 1927 and the opening of the Tamiami Trail in 1928, the once-remote resort was finally open to development, but the Depression turned the dreamed-of boom into a bust until after World War II. The picture-perfect beaches and warm winter climate were soon "rediscovered," and by the time Hurricane Donna stormed ashore on September 10, 1960, Naples was the fastest-growing city in Collier County.

Naples, Florida: A Photographic Portrait

Creator: Jean Amodea | Travel - 2014-03-10

Wherever you live, you may have never heard of a town named after its Mediterranean counterpart— Naples.

Publisher: Twin Lights Publishers

About this book
Wherever you live, you may have never heard of a town named after its Mediterranean counterpart— Naples. Residents, highly protective of their slice of heaven, try to maintain hushed tones about how perfect living can be in an earthly paradise. To those who have uncovered her splendor, Naples’ reputation is that of a coveted vacation and seasonal destination for celebrities, Silicon Valley company executives, and professionals from every walk of life. Enamored with the temperate climate and irresistible Gulf breezes that blow warm from sun-up to after dark, snow birds, visitors, and locals are perpetually delighted as they move about their day with the aid of perfect weather. The wonder of spotting Naples’ estuary wildlife, marine animals, land and seabirds winging through their natural habitats makes Naples a beloved destination for flora and fauna devotees and eco-tourists alike. Sighting one of 350 pairs of bald eagles, or an American alligator, languid sea turtles, Florida panthers to graceful dolphins and wintering manatees make the area a bonanza for eco-tourists. Enjoy this extraordinary photographic journey and be mesmerized by all that Naples was, is and what it will become.

    A Realtor's Take on Why You Should Move to Naples

    4/5 VaVet96 (Virginia) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Moving to Naples: The Un-Tourist Guide (Kindle Edition) Just keep in mind that this is a marketing tool written by a Realtor. As such, it provides a glowing review of anything and everything Naples. That said, it is fairly well written and does provide valuable information (references, neighborhood descriptions, and activities in the area) for anyone seriously interested in moving to Naples. It is a good starting point. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 21, 2014

    AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT BY AVOIDING THIS BOOK !!!

    My opinions follow: This is one of the poorest excuses for a location guide that I have ever read. There is nothing to be found in this WAY OVERPRICED "book" than one can easily find on the Web. Why in the world directory information compiled in this form is thought to be worth $25+ is simply crazy. Don't be fooled. I was so fed up with the contents of this book that I returned it. My suggestion: f you're looking for current and valuable insights on Naples, FL, be warned, this is not the book for you. It's only 128 pages, so at best it is superficial. LOOK ELSEWHERE!Simply Google "Naples, FL" and you'll find as much, if not more information of value than what is to be found in this publication. Check out the Naples Chamber of Commerce (for shopping and business information), State of FL websites (for labor statistics), Collier County (for localized statistical and health care data), NOAA (for weather info) and the City of Naples website for most... 1/5 Gary Roberts (Michigan & Florida (both)) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
