The Best of the Best: A Naples, FL Travel Guide

Last week, I took a trip down to Naples, Florida to visit family and get a little R&R. The Sunshine State surely did not disappoint, despite high temperatures and humidity.

Keep scrolling to find out some of my favorite places in Naples!

Where we stayed:

Our accommodations were at the Inn at Pelican Bay – debatably one of the nicest hotels I’ve ever stayed in. A complimentary continental breakfast was served every morning (the donuts were FANTASTIC!) which allows for cozy dine-ins or at deck breakfast overlooking the pool. Such a relaxing way to start your morning.

Best food spots:

Brooks Burgers -Apparently this is considered one of the best burger places in the country, according to locals (definitely no bias there!). They have 4 different locations. The kicker: they’re all in Naples. I got the California burger which consists of ground beef, cheddar cheese, and avocado. YUM!

Tacos & Tequila -This was probably my favorite spot. Everything is delicious. The chips and salsa, the guacamole, the margaritas, you name it; each one more delicious than the next. I highly suggest getting the T&T Taco and the Sunday Taco.

Best bar:

Burntwood Tavern – This place has such a nice atmosphere with very intriguing glass light fixtures all around. The indoor/outdoor bar was also pretty cool. If you’re ordering food, I recommend the shrimp tacos and Margherita flatbread.

Best shop:

Best of Everything – Let me tell you, this store certainly lives up to its name. They have a beautiful selection of quality jewelry at very reasonable price points. Be sure to check out one of their three locations in Naples, or their store in Bonita Springs. There’s also a Best of Everything in Kennebunkport, Maine.

You can take a walk down 5th Avenue for the ultimate shopping experience as well.
