Florida Vacation Guide: What to shop for at 5th Avenue South
If you’re going to be in Naples Florida and you’re hoping to do some shopping while you’re at the beach, head to 5th Avenue South – the best way to combine luxury shopping and a sandy shoreline. Only blocks away from the water, you can stroll its palm-lined streets and explore sidewalk cafes, galleries, fine restaurants and many options in upscale clothes shopping.
What to shop for at 5th Avenue South
A majority of the stores are shoe shops and dress shops, from Vogue Petite Shop that caters to women 5’4 and under, to Bob Baker shoes, a Naples establishment since the 60s. And there’s also clothing for your pets, if that’s on the agenda - the high end Pucci & Catana Luxury Pet Boutique carries feline and canine couture.
Tucked in between boutiques and on side streets, you’ll find unique shops and one-of-a-kind items. From creative gifts at Mermaids Bite and hand-painted ceramics at The Name Game, to hand woven clothes at Altered Elements, you’ll also find antique stores, home furnishing shops and bookstores.
