Our Top Picks for Sights to See in Naples

With tons of natural beauty, Naples is a serene and visually dynamic city that’s quickly becoming one of the most popular urban centers on the Florida West Coast. Named after the Italian city of the same name, it was the Bay in Naples and the gorgeous sunny weather that its founders likened to the original place.

Today, the city has become the center of ecological tourism in Florida, owing to its proximity to the Florida Everglades. However, the main city of Naples is known for its multiple bays, deltaic land and especially the Naples Pier.

On a helicopter sightseeing tour, there’s not much you can’t see of the beautiful city of Naples!

Florida Everglades

The Everglades are a wetland region in Southern Florida, which is known for its unique ecosystem, exotic wildlife, and plant life unlike anywhere else in the world. The jigsaw landscape in the Everglades forms one of the most stunning views from an aerial tour, as green intersperses with calm blue.

The area is home to crocodiles and alligators, which is a rarity, as well as tons of species of birds and even the Florida panther. You can take an exhilarating helicopter wildlife tour in Naples if you’re interested in wildlife sightseeing!

Pelican Bay

Although Pelican Bay is essentially a census designated area, since most of the region is residential and leisure-based, the bay itself is full of mangrove areas that are one extra addition to the interesting ecology that Naples presents.

Mangroves are resting and nesting places for migratory birds, and home to prawns that breed in mangrove roots. Watch out for the adjacent Vanderbilt Beach that’s known for its calm, clear waters!

The Naples Pier

The Naples Pier is not only one of the most scenic places in the city, but also one of the most historically significant. Dating back to 1888, the pier was built for easy access via boats and ships as they were the primary means of supplies for early settlement.

This giant pier extends into the Gulf of Mexico by 1000 feet, which is why it’s so easily spotted during a Naples aerial sightseeing tour.

Isles of Collier Preserve

This neighborhood in Naples is an example of how nature and humans can co-exist peacefully. The deltaic water laps up right next to the land area, where plenty of people live in suburban-style homes.

This intricate geography is one of a kind, especially when you find out that people kayak in these waters too!
