Naples, FL off season

Yes it's a little hot and humid, but not too bad. We are staying at the Trianon near 5th ave. The rates are less than $100 per night. Walking distance to beach, and restaurants. Most restaurants have summer specials which are very reasonable. Walked on the pier and beach. Recommend Real Seafood Co, great meal. Heard that the Ritz Carlton @ Vanderbilt had a great beach bar, they don't. Went to The Parrot near Tin City. Listened to open mic night, very friendly and had a great time. Sunday morning to church services at Cambier Park, under the trees. Very relaxing and talked to many locals. Raining this morning, but has been sunshine for the past week.

We vacationed to Naples for the 1st and only time at the end of February in 2010. We were much disappointed in the cold weather throughout the week (because we spent a lot of money on our plane, hotel, and rental car) but enjoyed our excursion into the Everglades and boat ride on the bay from Gulf Shores state park.

Our hotel, the Cove Inn, was very nice and we'd love to come back some spring. Our neighbor at the hotel told us she flies into Fort Myers from Detroit, rents a car for a day to gather groceries, supplies, etc., returns the car to a lot in Naples and takes the bus for the few weeks of her stay! Makes a lot of sense and save her some money.

I loved the pier and beach and felt very safe there. Had the best fish dinner at a little bar named the Naples Inn (I think) around 3rd Street.
