Do & See
Beyond the beaches, there is much more to enjoy in Naples. The Golisano Children's Museum of Naples is a must-see, as is the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens with its popular giraffes, black bears, and boat rides to view primates living cage-free on islands in the zoo's Lake Victoria. Cool off at Sun-n-Fun Lagoon water park with five water slides, water fountains and a lazy river. For pursuits in nature, take one of the guided tours through the Everglades National Park and/or Big Cypress National Preserve - all with a short drive from town.

Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens

Naples Zoo is much more than a walk-through zoo. Hand-feed the herd of giraffe. Experience keeper talks, premier wildlife shows, hand-feeding of alligators by professional staff, venomous snake presentations, and cruises through islands of monkeys. Plus, see favorites like lions, tigers, and bears. Naples Zoo is one of only four zoos in the nation to feature the fierce honey badgers. Have some wild fun with animals from alligators to zebras inside a historic botanical garden and Southwest Florida's only nationally accredited zoo. Enjoy a full day of wildlife shows and guided cruises past islands of monkeys and apes.
