North Naples Places
The northern sector of Naples is comprised of a blend of newer gated communities and subdivisions, older residential neighborhoods and a wide array of educational, retail, cultural and dining availabilities.
Heading north along the Tamiami Trail from the intersection of Pine Ridge Road will take you past some large, country style homes on oversized tracts of an acre and more along the east side of the road. Streets meander through tree lined neighborhoods of upscale homes, some bordering one of the several large lakes between Tamiami Trail and Goodlette-Frank Road.
Along the western side of the Trail is the Naples Philharmonic Center for the Arts, luxury retail shopping and dining center The Waterside Shops and several professional and financial institutions. This is also the southern tip of Pelican Bay, a huge, upscale master-planned development with dozens of individual enclaves of homes and condo styles and resort amenities within the community. This exclusive golf course community stretches all the way north to Vanderbilt Beach Road.
Further north you will find Bay Colony Golf Club, one of North Naples most luxurious private country club communities, on the east side of U.S. 41. A championship 18-hole course, palatial club facility and multi-million dollar estate homes make Bay Colony of the most desirable residential settings in all of Collier County. A few other exclusive golf course communities in North Naples include Pelican Marsh Golf Club and Stoneybrook, which is located between Goodlette-Frank and Airport Roads.
Along the coastline in North Naples, high-rise condo towers in Pelican Bay and Bay Colony offer stunning water and natural Florida landscape views, and just inland many single-family homes are on the water, with fast Gulf access through the many channels and inlets.
Many commercial establishments, including upscale retail merchants, fine and casual dining spots, banks and other professional businesses are within North Naples. The northeast corner of Tamiami Trail and Vanderbilt Beach Road is home to Mercato, an ambitious development designed for new urban living, with residential condominiums, shopping, dining and entertainment attractions all in one convenient location.
