Naples area profile

Naples, Florida is a popular winter destination for thousands of visitors who travel there each year from the northern United States. Many vacationers and part time residents arrive annually in late November and stay until just after Easter weekend. The local Naples economy receives a dramatic increase in the number of customers for restaurants, shopping, entertainment, real estate, construction, and almost every business in Collier County. The population of Naples quickly expands by more than 30 percent during this time which has always been known locally as the tourist season.

Collier County geography

Downtown Naples is located where the Tamiami Trail (U.S. 41) takes a drastic left turn and heads towards Miami. Since the late 1920's, U.S. 41 was the only route through Southwest Florida when traveling from Tampa to Miami. Interstate 75 was completed in the mid-1980's and it roughly follows the Tamiami Trail from Tampa to the east coast of Florida. Naples and Collier County sit directly on the Gulf of Mexico and have many public beach accesses all along the coast.

Marco Island is southeast of Naples and is connected to the mainland by Collier Blvd (CR 951) and the Judge S.S. Jolley Bridge. Immokalee is several miles northeast of Naples and sits at the crossroads of County Road 846 (Immokalee Road) and State Road 29. Other towns in Collier County include Golden Gate City, historic Everglades City, Chokoloskee, and Ochopee.

Naples history

Naples has a rich commercial fishing history and still maintains a fishing pier at the site of the first one built in 1888 off of 12th Avenue South. Naples is the county seat for Collier County but Everglades City was the center of county government until 1962. In the early 1920's, Naples was still a small fishing village when Barron G. Collier bought 900,000 acres of land in what is now Collier County. He was the main force behind the building of the Tamiami Trail across the Everglades, financing and directing the project until its completion in 1928.
