You’ll definitely want to take advantage of these hidden gems
If you’re a life-long Southwest Florida resident or just a frequent visitor, you know how great the area is (which explains why you live here or visit frequently). With spectacular beaches, exceptional year-round weather, and tons of things to do, there’s rarely a dull moment.
However, perhaps you’re tired of going to the same spots or the places filled with tourists. If that’s the case, let us present to you five unique attractions that will further deepen your love for this area:
The Naples Depot
If you or your kids love trains, you have to take a trip over the Naples Depot. Originally a train station, the Depot is now a museum filled with an assortment of classic cars, antique boats, and – you guessed it – old train cars. The Naples Train Museum is also next door, which is aimed at kids.
Historic Palm Cottage
Built-in 1895 for Walter N. Halderman, one of the founders of Naples, Palm Cottage is considered to be the oldest house in the city. It is owned by the Naples Historical Society, and you can take a tour of the home or just stroll through the beautiful Norris Gardens.
Dome house off Cape Romano
Like weird stuff? Then the Cape Romano dome house is a must-see. Built by an oil producer in 1980 as a vacation home, the house was lived in for a number of years but now sits empty. You can get an up close and personal look at what remains by kayak or boat tour.
The Revs Institute
If you’re a car aficionado, The Revs Institute may end up being your favorite spot in all of Naples. To call it a car museum doesn’t do it justice, as it contains over 100 rare automotive innovations that go back as far as 1896.
Captain CJ’s Jet Pack Adventures
Ever seen somebody flying around with a jetpack on TV or in a movie and thought it looked like a lot of fun? Well, now you can get that experience with Captain CJ’s Jet Pack Adventures. With a certified instructor by your side, you will be propelled up to 30 feet in the air with a water jetpack.
Barefoot Beach Preserve
Even if you have explored many of the amazing beaches in Southwest Florida, you may not have visited Barefoot Beach Preserve yet. In addition to the beach, there are walking trails, areas to fish, and opportunities to learn about – and maybe see – some of the animal inhabitants, including the protected gopher tortoise.
The great thing about Southwest Florida is that it never fails to surprise. If you’ve decided you’d like to live here permanently – or perhaps you’re in the market for a new home – Dante Disabato can help you find whatever you are looking for.
