“FUN SHOPPING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Nautical atmosphere on the waterfront- souvenir shopping and clothes- get your pic with an alligator!! Restaurants there too-
also can book and board water attractions at this location. Quite a few shops-lots of nautical decor to buy if that's what you are looking for!

“Very interesting place !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We visited Tin City & loved walking along the marina & seeing some of the typiclal tourist shopping. It was a very nice place for a couple of hours of browsing. Nice to stop & have a "happy hour" drink too !!

“Touristy but do what your wife says”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

Ever been on a cruise and gotten off the ship in a Caribbean island - surrounded by people trying to sell you stuff. That's Tin City. Now, in fairness, we were disappointed that the guy who lets you hold his pet alligator was on a lunch break and wouldn't open up for another half hour. We didn't have time to wait. However, we did find the T-shirts-that-turn-colors-in-the-sunlight and bought some for our grandsons so that made us smile. Parking was the pits. And all the booths require negotiating through the crowds to see but I guess its worth spending a half hour there. And, if you do, the alligator guy might be open. WAIT! my wife is telling me I am too harsh. She said there's a great jewelry shop that women would love. Also, our friend also says the thing to do is buy a hot fresh cookie at the cookie shop and run over to the ice cream shop to get a scoop ice cream to melt on the hot cookie. AND BONUS-BONUS-BONUS - you may be lucky to see the traveling exhibit - for $8 you can walk onto the Nina or the Pinta boats (full size replicas of Columbus', they say......). OK go because my wife said to. A happy wife is a happy life.

“Touristy but fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

A must see and do in Naples. Yes it's touristy but there are some decent shops! I got some great jewelry there. Good restaurants within the area. Busy area, sometimes parking can be tricky. A fun time!

“Nice variety of shops, pubs and restaurants.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

I've been to Naples twice and on both visits I went to Tin City. Nice little shops for souvenirs and quaint little pubs to stop and have a drink or two with friends.
