Hey FL Peeps!

My wife is dragging me to Naples for a week in May with my 19 year old son.   We will do the beach thing and a couple of the tourist things like kayaking and shelling.   Is there anything cool for the guys to do around there to keep us busy?  I want to stay away from the theme parks.  How about restaurants that are on the must visit or must avoid list?

Thanks!

Checkout Lotus Gun works also known as The Alamo. Nice shop. Restaurants depends on foods you all like. Steak: Chops, Seafood: multiple places. Check out 5th Ave. S, lots of restaurants and shops.

https://jimmypssteaks.com/charred-naples-steakhouse/ is a nice spot. They have a restaurant and a butcher shop.

21 Spices if you like Indian food. The chef there was on the "Beat Bobby Flay" show and won. There's a big food truck park there too. Good tacos.

3rd Ave and 5th Ave have a lot of shops, bars, restaurants, art galleries, etc.

Marco Island is worth a drive.

For Shelling, I highly recommend “Treasure Seekers Shell Tours”. My Wife is a hard core Shell collector and they are by far the best. If you are up to it, they will get you out to some GREAT, rarely touched locations.

Consider an Airboat tour of the Everglades but make sure the water is up or the boat will be limited to the deeper canals. You will see some BIG Gators.

You can fish from the Naples Pier (not sure about license requirements).

Delonore-Wiggins State Park, Tigertail Beach, Barefoot Beach

Rent a Kayak or better yet take a guided Kayak tour.

CJ’s marina bar on Marco Island. The food is meh but sit outside.

Doreen’s Cup of Joe, also on Marco for breakfast.

Sanibel Island

Charter fishing but fishing has been shit in recent years.

There are a few sunset booze cruises in the area.

Visit the Bass Pro Shop

Bonita Springs Flea Market

Visit the Indian Reservation along the Tamiami Trail

If you are into clays or bird hunting, you should check out Coles Gunsmithing in Naples.  It's in a light industrial area, but well worth a visit.  Their showroom has shotguns approaching $100,000.  It's worth the visit if you are in the area.  They are west of Airport Pulling south of J&C Blvd.  Google will get you there.

Always have a joint ready for the traffic waiting for the light to turn green.

I usually use Reel Kind for fishing and shelling tours when I have visitors.

4 or 6 hour trips...lots of fish and shells.

Get some long sleeved shirts...it's beginning to hit 90* every day.

Sitting at one of those crosswalks that you have to yield to the pedestrians, the ones without the signals, gets old.

My Mom gets mad because I make comments and sometimes my windows are open.

You guys got it pretty much covered.

Want a great Bagel sandwich?

Hit Brooklyn Dough in a hole (935 3rd Ave N).

Not crazy about their coffee but Dunkin Donuts is on the same block.
