Fifth Avenue South, The Heart of Old Naples
I work on the prettiest street in the world [click on image to enlarge]. Sitting at my desk, I face out in front of a big picture window...it's amazing to me that i don't spend more time daydreaming...As I look out, I can see the beautiful people passing by...Those who are lucky enough to live here are usually dressed for work, and the snowbirds that recently began arriving again for season can be spotted at the sidewalk cafes...while those that are here for shorter visits are quite noticeably "on vacation". This area of Naples called Old Naples, snugged up against the Gulf of Mexico, was founded in the late 1800's by pioneers with a vision for a place to winter in the sun. The allure remains today, as it is my opinion, few places on earth offer the beauty, ambiance and activity that you can find on Fifth Avenue South. Restaurants, bistros and coffee shoppes...World-class galleries, live theater and unbelievable boutiques. The mile-long avenue is alive with things to do each and everyday. There are holiday themed parades, open air art shows and city festivals. Why, just tonight we are celebrating our Evening On Fifth from 6-9PM...an event held on the 2nd Thursday of each month that brings out musicians, restaurant specials and sidewalk sales! There are days when I pinch myself, to think that I live, work and play in this magnificent place.
