Naples is Rockin’ and Open for Business!

Naples is Rockin’ and Open for Business!


The Paradise Coast is Clear! Naples and Marco Island beaches are as beautiful as ever and most of our hotels have reopened. Businesses are up and running and visitors are enjoying the beaches, shopping, attractions, and dining in our many locally-owned restaurants. 

The Fall Festival season is underway! Check our destination calendar of events to see what's happening in Florida's Paradise Coast. 

Check this out! The Collier County community on Florida’s Paradise Coast comes together Saturday, December 9 for Naples is Rockin’– a concert to benefit those hit hardest by Hurricane Irma. Naples is Rockin’ is a celebration of our resiliency and our willingness to help our fellow community members in their time of need. The celebration and concert will begin at 5 p.m. at the corner of Fifth Avenue south and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples. Gates open at 4:30 p.m. Kicking off the event will be local artist and “The Voice” finalist Casey Weston, followed by “20Ride,” America’s number one Zac Brown Tribute Band. Taking the stage as the top act of the evening is Sugar Ray, featuring Mark McGrath, who will play all their hits, including “Fly,” “Every Morning” and “Someday.” Over the course of the evening several other surprise musicians and guests will be introduced, all coming together in support of our community moving forward.
