The Most Beautiful Place on Earth OUR 3 FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT NAPLES
Disney may be the happiest place on Earth, but Naples is hands-down the most beautiful. Over their years buying and selling luxury real estate in the city, Kimberly and Vincent have explored everything Naples has to offer and often debate just what it is that gives it this special spark. In these last few crazy months, the topic has come up more and more. That’s because honestly, there’s nowhere else we’d rather be “stuck” social distancing during a pandemic than here! With that in mind, Kimberly and Vincent decided to share the results of their yearslong debate and reveal their three favorite things about Naples.
the pack, they just might pick the water three times! There’s nothing like living on the beach, and the Gulf Coast has some of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. The gentle blue-green waves are a boater’s paradise, whether you prefer a simple kayak or a luxury yacht, and many local homes have private docks so your vessel will never be farther than a few steps from your door. 2. DIVERSE BIKING AND WALKING TRAILS Between the temperate weather and gorgeous ocean views, Naples residents spend a lot of time outdoors. Luckily, a network of excellent biking and walking trails span the city, which make it easy to explore and get a workout in. Some of our favorites are Pine Island Bike
Path, the John Yarbrough Linear Park Trail, the Boca Grande Bike Path, and the Gordon River Greenway.
3. DELICIOUS FOOD Naples is home to some of the best
Italian and French food this side of the Atlantic. Even during the pandemic, many of our favorite spots continued to offer takeout and delivery sensational enough to turn any meal into a special occasion. Our can’t-miss destinations include Osteria Tulia, The French, Truluck’s, The Continental, and Sea Salt.
For these reasons and more, there’s no better place to call home.

YOUR GUIDE TO THE PERFECT VIRTUAL HAPPY HOUR It’s Time to Raise a Glass!
If you can’t see your friends in person to clink wine glasses or whiskey tumblers, never fear: A virtual happy hour can bring all of your closest pals right into your living room. The concept is simple. Using online meetup programs like Google Hangouts, Zoom, or FaceTime, you can drink with friends across the country without leaving home. If you don’t want to get out of your sweatpants but want to sip a classy cocktail, this is a win-win. But, you can also ditch the sweats and go all-out for the full virtual happy hour (VHH) experience. Here are five short steps to VHH success. 1. PICK YOUR PLATFORM. In the days leading up to your VHH, your friends need to agree on a single platform. Once you choose, make sure everyone has downloaded it and encourage your buddies to do a test run to ensure they can be seen and heard. 2. THEME IT UP. Every party is better with a theme, and VHH is no exception! Considering the decade, Roaring ‘20s is a popular choice, but you can go
with whatever floats your friend group’s boat, whether that’s Kentucky Derby or "Harry Potter" (alcoholic butterbeer, anyone?). 3. WRITE YOUR MENU. While you could just drink whatever beer or half-open bottle of wine is sitting in your respective refrigerators, where’s the fun in that? To really class up your VHH, chat with your friends about the ingredients you all have on hand and come up with a themed cocktail menu to “order” from on the big night. 4. DRESS TO THE NINES. Since you’re in the privacy of your own home, you can try out your wackiest, fanciest outfits without public judgment. If you’ve always wanted to try on a Roaring ‘20s flapper dress or a Roman toga, now is the time! Remember, if you go with the "Harry Potter" theme, your bathrobe could easily pass as a wizard’s robe in a pinch. 5. DRINK! You’ve planned perfectly, so now it’s time to enjoy each other’s company. Plus, there’s one final perk: Since you’re drinking and giggling on your own couch, you don’t need to worry about a designated driver or an Uber to get you to your bedroom. You’ve got this!
