Can't believe I've been coming to Naples for a few years & missed these shops (on both sides of Park Shores)...we spent quite a bit of time shopping & of course had lunch...more relaxing than 5th Ave. and more interesting than Waterside Shops. It will be on my list of favorite places to re-visit when in Naples.

Very nice area to shop and dine. Service was very good and very friendly, and what a great place to walk around and enjoy the views. Definitely a must stop when in Naples.

The shops here are lovely, and less pricey than the nearby Waterside Shops. The setting is right on the bay, so most of the restaurants have outdoor dining on the water or indoor dining with a bay view. It's a lovely setting day or night. There is a wonderful swimsuit store (Aqua), which is staffed by helpful unintimidating women who will gently guide you to the perfect suit for you. There are reasonably priced women's clothing stores and a very upscale children's clothing store. The staff at these shops are generally welcoming and helpful. Some of my favorite restaurants in Naples are here, but there is also a Ben and Jerry's and a sandwich shop if you just want a quick stop. The parking is easy. At the marina, you can rent an assortment of boats or kayaks or purchase bait. There is an passageway from the north side to the south side which goes under Park Shore so you don't have to cross the street to get from one side to the other. Also, at least when we were there in May, there were shades up to keep you from getting too much sun.

I like boutiques but this place is awful. Every store carried same women's clothing and accessories for the 60+ crowd no variety what so ever. Waste of time skip it!
