    The Weather

    by Vega44 Written Nov 14, 2008

    Favorite thing: I only lived here for about 3 months with my father. While I was down there however there was one thing i noticed. It rained, everyday. Not just a little dirzzle but huge thunderstorm kind of rain. Now this was during the summer, the perfect season for them.

    I can't say I disliked it. Take the morning to go out and do something, meanwhile the tempature would rise. Once 3 in the afternoon would hit however the beautiful storm (I say beautiful due to all the fanciful dances of the lightening) would hit and cool off everything. It was nice because although it would be humid outside, the dampness would feel nice. Not to mention all of the little Anole Lizards that would scurry across the sidewalk.

    Fondest memory: I miss finding the lizards everywhere.

    Gulf Shore beach

    Favorite thing: Don't miss Gulf Shore and Vanderbilt beaches. The former is more quiet - in particular around the area called "The Clams" where few bathers are found. Access is safe (e.g. by bike). Generally showers are available at the entrance to the beach. White sands abound and shells can be found by the bucket load. The tide is not too strong and swimming can be practiced.

    Me on a beach

    Favorite thing: This is me relaxing on the beach in Naples. It really was a lovely beach. There seemed to be a lot of retiree's in Naples (just an observation!). The water was really warm and calm. Quite different to the sea in NZ.

    Go to the beach with a picnic & collect sea shells

    by RhondaRuth Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Go to the beach with a picnic lunch, relax in the sun on the beach, walk along the white sands or in the warm clear water. And most of all .... you won't be able to resist the seashells. There's always that 'one more' you have to bring home.

    Fondest memory: Spending time on the beach collecting seashells with a friend. Going to a beachside tiki lounge for a frosty drink was rather nice also! Of course, sharing good times with friends is always the best way to see and experience new places.

    Favorite thing: Being from the midwest, there is nothing better than arriving in Naples in April to balmy 85 degree days when it's still in the 50s at home. Lying on the beach with the sun warming your winter-weary skin, listening to the waves and the seagulls is the most relaxing thing in the world.

    Fondest memory: We stayed in a condo on Gulfshore Blvd., and every night after dinner (we prefer casual dinners that we make ourselves in the condo) we would walk across the street to the Village on Venetian Bay and window shop. Sometimes we would stop at the Ben & Jerry's and have ice cream for dessert.

    Vanderbilt Beach

    Favorite thing: Wiggins Pass State Park.
    It's a nice walk on the beach. If you're (really) lucky you'll find a shark's tooth.

    Fondest memory: The weather is unbeatable. Even the storms are dramatic.

    Naples beach scene

    Favorite thing: The beach was gorgeous! Beautiful white sand, clear blue water and lots of shells and sand dollars washed up on the beach.

    Favorite thing: Sunset! You must see the sunset.

    Fondest memory: You can go to the oier for the sunset, fishing or for the ice-cream. Yeap! They sell ice-cream right in the pier.

    Fondest memory: I expect to see a beautiful sunset from the pier. Well, got clouds and rain. But was worth and I still got the pic.
