I grew up in Long Beach but hadn't ever been to Naples for the Christmas lights. We took our kids and walked along the canal, pleasantly surprised at the effort homeowners make to decorate for Christmas. A great way to get outside and enjoy a southern California evening, with or without children. The only downside is finding parking!

We strolled through the canals and neighborhood just after New Year's on a rather cool afternoon. It was wonderful. Many people had decorated for the holidays, so it was fun to see all the decorations. I can imagine it's a wonderful place to visit during warmer weather when there are people actually boating in the canals. Each home is unique... More

Nice neighborhood to walk around. Beautiful, unique houses overlooking the canal. Parking can be tricky, you park on a side street. Remember where you parked, it's easy to get turned around.

Visited Naples Island on New Year Eve. The whole residential area along the canal was glittering with lights. Could judge the enthusiasm of people living there for celebrating Christmas and New Year. Could see many people taking boat rides. Many people were roaming in the area to enjoy the lighting decoration.

If you are paddle boarder this is a great place to go. You can launch from Ocean Boulevard just east of Bayshore Drive. If you paddle all the way around the bay and then once through the canals, the distance is about 5 miles. Makes for a good workout and a great view at the same time.

This is not really a tourist attraction but it's a nice place to walk or run as long as you don't mind crowded paths. The views are lovely. Paths will take you along zig/zaggy sidewalks, between houses, and sometimes you feel like you are on someone's porch! but overall it's nice. Not my favorite running spot but nice to visit... More

Naples Island is hidden and if you are driving east or west on 2nd Street, you won't see it. Turn off on Ravenna drive and you are in Naples island. Drive slow. Roads are narrow. Enjoy the canals, the homes, there is a park at the end of this street too. Just be aware of parking signs and show courtesy... More

It is always nice to take this stroll during the holidays. In addition to seeing all the houses decked out in holiday lights, you can get some great home decor ideas!

What a lovely surprise this was! My husband researched it and surprised me with a lovely sunset walk. The houses alone are beautiful, add amazing Christmas and Hanukkah decorations and a lovely evening walk and you have a perfect evening activity. I had never even heard of Naples Island and now I want to tell everyone about it.

Been here two years in a row now. If it's not too far off a drive for you I definitely recommend going. You can stroll the canal which is one big circle, no worries about getting lost, you'll end up back at your car eventually. Not too long of a walk. Gorgeous and unique homes right on the water.
