Naples Florida is one of "America's Best Towns for the Holidays"
While it may come as a shock to many people, those who know the area are not at all surprised to learn that Naples Florida is one of “America’s Best Towns for the Holidays.” According to the latest findings compiled by Travel + Leisure Magazine, this recently published article placed the city as the 5th best in the entire country for a place to spend the season. Colorado monopolized the list with 3 towns in the top 12, including #1 Aspen, and #2 Vail, however the Sunshine State was the only other state that had more than 1, with Santa Rosa Beach in the northwest portion of the state placing #11.
While stating that Naples Florida is one of “America’s Best Towns for the Holidays,” it noted that it “lacks snowman-building material” but makes up for that by ranking high for “warm weather and beach getaways.” The article then went on to say that this “snowbird-style winter wonderland still lured holiday revelers with its luxury stores, cool boutiques, and festive ambience.” It also singled out such areas as Third Street South, Olde Naples Historic District and Fifth Avenue South. Particular attention was given to the Naples version of the famous TUBA Christmas Concert “featuring brass tubas, euphoniums and baritones” that is held in Sugden Plaza, located off Tamiami Trail East (US 41).
Another aspect to note regarding the area’s ranking of #5, is that while both #1 & #2 are highly regarded for snow skiing, water skiing on inland lakes and the Gulf of Mexico, is a very popular activity in this locale. Couple the fact that Naples Florida is one of “America’s Best Towns for the Holidays” with also being named a top “Foodie” city in the country, and it becomes one of the greatest places to live anywhere in the world.
