Summer months are upon us and we are enjoying less crowded streets and no lines at our favorite restaurants. It’s a good time to get out and see what has survived and what has transitioned into something else. Naples has a constant element of change as it is morphing into the city it will become to exist in the future. Because of this, there are some small pockets of undiscovered treasures in areas around this growing metropolis. One such unique neighborhood is Crayton Cove. It is home to the City Dock where you can walk out on it and see numerous boats of all kinds, some of which are for charter, to go fishing, a day sail or a sunset cruise.
There are some of Naples’ finest restaurants here including Bleu Provence, Chez Boët , The Dock Restaurant and Napoli on the Bay, for a casual bite to eat. Along with this, there are some unique shops such as Paws Pet Boutique and art galleries such as Random Acts of Art, Phil Fisher Gallery and Guess-Fisher Gallery. The newest business to the street is Shannon Greene Jewelry. While you have the time, come and discover the Galleries of Crayton Cove where the Phil Fisher Gallery is featuring a show of his work and six others focused on “Sunshine Vibes” which concentrates on scenes of our beautiful corner of Southwest Florida. Crayton Cove is located at the intersection of 12th Ave S and 8th St S by the flagpole on the Bay.
