Naples, FL

Last week I was in Naples, FL – one of my favorite places. I stayed at The Ritz Carlton in Vanderbilt Beach during the week and then moved to downtown Naples when my fiancé arrived on Friday.

Downtown Naples

Once we got downtown, one of the first things I wanted to do was… shop. Since I have been here over the years with my family, I headed straight for Third Street to check out a few of my favorites, including Tickled Pink.

Campiello is one of the best Italian spots in Naples, FL (which is hard to say!) It is located off Third Street with seating in an outdoor courtyard as well as an amazing indoor space. The food and ambiance is perfection.

I could go on and on about the amazing restaurants in Naples, but here are a few favorites below (we ate at a few while there)…

Osteria Tulia

Hob Nob

Bice

Chops

And SO many more…

Marco Island Marriott Resort Pool

We cruised down to Marco Island from Naples to have lunch at one of my fiancés favorite lunch spots – Quinn’s on the Beach at The Marriott Resort which was absolutely beautiful. We ate and swam for the day.

We returned to Naples that evening. Unfortunately I have no pictures from dinner Saturday night, but we went to Hob Nob, which is fabulous, followed by some Saturday night college football and live music at Shea’s.

Sunday boat day

Sunday we cruised around the Gulf and up and down the intercoastal waters looking at the houses and fun dock and dines.

The ground of the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club

I have been going to the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club for years with my parents so I thought it would be a good time to show my fiancé around the property. It has amazing views and two good restaurants, but most importantly it was Sunday and the Sunset Beach Bar has the NFL ticket, so we went to watch some football (Go Ravens!)

My fiancé is a Giants fan so we literally did not sit near each other and watched our games, had lunch and beer separately,  like two crazy people, but it was so much fun (and we both won- yay!)

Sunset off the Naples Pier

After leaving the Naples Beach Club we headed downtown to walk the Naples Pier to watch the sunset and then showered for dinner. We went to Osteria Tulia, which is so amazing, sat outside, had some wine and capped off a wonderful weekend.
