Naples’ famously pristine white beaches and charming downtown are a must-visit for any traveler to the region, including travelers with pets.
With its coastal location and easy access to the Everglades, Naples has long been a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. Hop in the car for the quick trip to Bonita Beach Dog Beach. The time in the car is well worth it to enjoy the glistening sand, stunning views, and the area’s only off-leash dog beach. Open from dawn to dusk, Bonita Dog Beach is the place for endless games of fetch, picnics with the family, or simply an enjoyable sunset stroll. A bit further afield, but worth a visit, is the Fort Myers area, where the local beach allows leashed pets. The City of Sanibel also offers a good spot to explore. The Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park in North Naples is a great place to head when you need a break -- or a brisk swim. There, you and Fido can frolic in the waves of Water Turkey Bay.
If you need to exercise your pet within the city limits, then you’re in luck. Naples offers several spacious dog parks with leash and off-leash options. “Central Bark,” as it is nicknamed by the locals, the City of Naples Dog Park is within a short walk of downtown. Its 2.5 acres are packed with dog-lovers’ amenities, including two separate areas for small and large dogs, benches for humans that need a bit of rest, and washing stations. Allow your pooch to run free at Rover Run in the landscaped Veterans Community Park as well.

The Staybridge in Naples has been my "go to" place for 12 years. The staff is exceptional as are the rooms. Comfort of beds is very high.
Even more amazingly is that they offer free drinks (beer and[More]
wine) 3 nights a week as well as a dinner. The dinners are simple, baked potato, sloppy joes or hotdogs and hamburgers to name a few. The free breakfast is comprehensive with waffles, as well as 2 hot dishes, yogurt, cereal, coffee, etc. You need never leave the property! My friend and I meet here every year for our annual birthday time. We would never go anyplace else. [Less]
