In the heart of the city of Naples, snug against the Gulf of Mexico, lies an area known as Olde Naples. A unique and historically important area, Olde Naples radiates outward North, East and South form the Naples Pier. The 1000 foot long pier is enjoyed by sightseeing tourists, strolling locals and fishermen alike. Watching the sun set from the pier is a Naples tradition. Quite a few structures in Olde Naples date from the early days of the community's existence. They include a charming mix of frame fishermen's cottages and larger winter residences of prominent citizens. Many houses date from the era before 1960 and a wide variety of architecture styles and construction can be found along the avenues and streets. Parks, churches, the famed Third Street and Fifth Avenue shopping areas, and of course, the beach, are all within an easy walk or bike ride from anywhere in Olde Naples. Ride down one of the famous "alleys" and you can get a real feel for the "Old Florida" lifestyle that continues in the neighborhood. If you want to get away from the cookie-cutter environment found elsewhere, try friendly, laid-back Olde Naples. Its charm and personality have survived the rapid growth of the surrounding area and an active and earnest effort at renovation and preservation ensures the community's character and appeal will be retained.
