Presenting a good dose of glitz and glamour, along with a laid-back beachy vibe, Naples, on Florida's Paradise Coast, offers a mix of sand and sophistication that's a surprisingly natural fit for families.

A favorite coastal getaway for the well heeled since the Post Civil-War Era, Naples exudes a swanky style, along with an alluring natural beauty. Known for its rich culture, from upscale art galleries to a fashionable Fifth Avenue shopping district, the Southwest Florida city also boasts a scenic side that attracts adventurers of all ages.

Abundant public beaches provide kids with plenty of space to play in the sun and the sand, while a swamp sanctuary, a botanical garden, an environmental learning center and a nature center offer hands-on activities and family programs.

While dolphins and manatees might be the area's most frequently photographed stars, a number of other well-known personalities, from NBA players to a rock legend, also make their home on the sunbaked Paradise Coast. For those hoping to spot celebrities, January to April is high season. During this prime time, defined by rising rates and moderate temperatures, snowbirds flock to town, bringing with them plenty of posh company. Summers in Southwest Florida are hot and humid, but the shoulder months of May and October can be a dream, with pleasant weather, lower rates and good availability.

With regard to lodgings, Naples boasts a number of highly rated luxury resorts, which are both luxury-priced and family-friendly. While resort rates can be steep, thoughtful amenities like free toys and beach gear help ease the sticker shock for families on a budget. Along with villas and boutique properties in both locales, family lodging options in Naples include a mix of moderately priced chain hotels, which are refreshingly affordable.
