It’s finally December, which means the holidays are around the corner, and perhaps some travel! This year, I made my way down to Miami to visit my parents, but we ended up taking a trip to Naples, Florida, which was great! Nestled along the picturesque Gulf Coast, this tropical paradise transforms into a winter wonderland during the holiday season. I had never been to Naples during Christmas, so I was shocked to see how beautiful it is during the holidays. From dazzling light displays to festive events, Naples offers an array of activities that will delight visitors of all ages.
Immerse yourself in the joyous spirit of the season as you stroll through the charming downtown streets adorned with twinkling lights and beautifully decorated storefronts. Whether you’re seeking thrilling adventures on ice-skating rinks or peaceful moments of reflection at candlelit concerts, Naples has something for everyone. So, get ready to unwrap the magic of Christmas in Naples and follow along on my adventures as I show you some of the things I did, while in this beautiful city.
Christmas Things to Do in Naples, Florida
Step into a world of enchantment and discover the magic of Christmas in the vibrant city of Naples, Florida. The Sunshine State may not be known for the cold winters and the snowflakes, but that doesn’t mean there’s no holiday spirit. In fact, out of all the cities of been to in the Sunshine State, Naples takes the prize for best Christmassy city! So if you’re making your way to Naples, here are a few things to see and do.
The Naples Players Sugden Community Theatre
Aside from having a beautiful Christmas tree in front of their building and beautiful Christmas decorations all around, The Naples Players have the Trees & Teas event this year! The event features beautiful Christmas trees, which displays a musical and Broadway show theme. This event ends December 19, 2020.
Historic Palm Cottage
If you are wanting to take a tour or love to learn about the history of certain people and places, then you will love visiting the Historic Palm Cottage. This place is also decorated for the holidays, which makes it even more special.
Fifth Avenue South
This area is where all the Christmas decorations are! I was so impressed with the decorations around 5th Avenue. They really make you feel like you’re in a Christmas town and there are plenty of art galleries, shops, and restaurants to go to.
Inn on 5th
This really should go under Fifth Avenue South, but this Inn is so impressive it deserved its own section! Their decorations are absolutely gorgeous. Plus they also have a spa and pool in case you decide to visit.
Naples Botanical Garden
Stroll around Naples Botanical Garden and see the night lights in the garden! Illuminated with millions of lights, you can enjoy some special holiday cocktails and menu items at Fogg Café or just enjoy The live performances.
Regina’s Ice Cream Pavilion
Okay, so this isn’t exactly Christmassy, but they do decorate for Christmas! Plus who doesn’t want ice cream, while enjoying the warm weather in Florida? Regina’s is a very retro place and I absolutely loved getting my ice cream there.
Christmas Boat Parade
If you’re looking for a social distance activity, look no further! The Christmas Boat Parade is a great way to enjoy a parade without having to be near floats and street performers. The parade is happening on Saturday, December 12th from 6:15 pm to 8:30 pm.
