5th Avenue South is a great shopping district in central Old Naples. This area include unique stores, sidewalk cafes, hotels, galleries, and fine dining along palm-lined streets just a few blocks from the water. Perhaps the only problem here is the lack of convenient parking.
Also nearby is Third Street South, an area of of some 100 fine clothing stores, gift boutiques, restaurants and galleries.
Starting at S. 5th Ave is downtown Naples. This is the main area for shopping, dining and nightlife. Be warned, since this area is filled with seniors, their is limited nightlife. Everything is walking distance and up to about 9pm, the streets are bustling. The street is filled with palm trees on either side. Safe to walk around.

The main drag of Naples is its commercial center as well, 5th Avenue South. All manner of boutiques, restaurants & galleries line the street for blocks in the restored historic city center buildings, from the main intersection at the Tamiami Trail (US41) & 5th. Don’t forget to go down there on the first Thursday of the month if you’re in town then. It becomes one huge block party, with all kinds of bands playing along the street, and shops & galleries open late for your after-dinner stroll.
Nice street with Mediteranian style buildings.
We visited many fine shops, galleries, restaurants, and sidewalk cafes along the beautifully landscaped promenades in this historic setting near the beach and in the heart of Naples. A unique place where families and friends can meet surrounded by the aura of small-town friendliness and historical landmarks, but also with a flavor and sophistication that is Naples' Main Street.
