6 Best Places in Naples, Florida, to Drive an Exotic Car

Did you know South Florida has some truly magical and exclusive places worth visiting? One of these is Naples, known for its wonderful beaches, upscale shopping, and beautiful natural scenery. These offer the perfect backdrop for driving an exotic car and, in general, planning a luxury getaway.

Whether your stay in Naples is for business, pleasure, or just to get away from the routine, what is certain is that it will be completely unforgettable, so without further ado, here are some of the best places to explore.

1. Gulf Shore Boulevard

Gulf Shore

If you’ve never driven down Gulf Shore Boulevard, let me tell you that it’s a must-see if you love ocean views. It is not for nothing that these views are the ones that make it occupy the first place in this list. This picturesque road runs along the coastline, offering an incredible view of the Gulf of Mexico.

This boulevard is famous for its luxurious homes and beautiful gardens, making it the perfect destination if you’re looking for a relaxing view or if you plan to take captivating photos. It can even be the perfect destination for a romantic date: you and your partner in our Porsche 911, driving while watching the pink and orange tones of the sunset. If you ask me, this is a perfect plan.

By the way, Gulf Shore Boulevard’s charm extends beyond its beautiful scenery. You’ll notice a blend of architectural styles as you drive, from classic Mediterranean villas to modern beachfront mansions. Consider stopping at one of the many beach access points to walk on the sand or dip your toes in the Gulf waters; it is worth it.

2. 5th Avenue South

5 Ave

Another of my favorite places in downtown Naples’s heart is 5th Avenue South, where style and sophistication meet. This avenue is famous for its upscale boutiques, fine-dining restaurants, and vibrant atmosphere. The nightlife here is lively, with classy bars and lounges providing the perfect spot to unwind.

You can park any of our exotic cars, maybe a Lamborghini Urus, and explore high-end shops offering designer clothes and exquisite jewelry. When hunger strikes, you can choose from gourmet restaurants, many with outdoor seating perfect for people-watching.

But that’s not all. Beyond the shopping and dining, 5th Avenue South offers a rich cultural experience. Art galleries dot the street, featuring works from local and international artists. I like that the avenue hosts many events during the winter, including art fairs, music festivals, and holiday parades, making it a lively place to visit year-round. You can feel the charm anytime you go.

3. Third Street South

Old Naples

The third spot on the list is Third Street South, which blends old-world charm with modern luxury, creating a delightful driving experience. One thing that has always struck me about this part of Naples is its historic buildings, intermingled with the exclusive boutiques. It’s a charming area to park your car, explore on foot, enjoy a meal at a chic café, and browse the shops for unique finds. The combination of historic charm and contemporary elegance makes Third Street South a must-visit.

But do you know what’s the best thing about this location? The beauty of the nearby Naples Historic District, where you can explore landmarks like the Palm Cottage, Naples’ oldest house. The district offers a glimpse into the area’s past with its preserved architecture and informative tours. Moreover, the district’s proximity to the beach allows you to go from shopping and dining to relaxing by the sea.  What else can you ask for?

4. Naples Pier

Naples Pier

This ranking can be taken seriously without Naples Pier, and there is a good reason: driving to Naples Pier is a must when you’re in the area. This iconic landmark offers some of the best views in the city, and it is pretty popular among locals and tourists, making it a great place for people-watching. 

Beyond the pier itself, the surrounding area offers additional attractions. For example, the beach adjacent to the pier is one of the most beautiful in Naples (and probably in South Florida), with its soft white sand and clear blue waters. It’s like taking some time for yourself in a magical place.

After a day at the pier and beach, you can drive to one of the nearby beachfront restaurants for a delicious meal with an ocean view. I suggest this destination if you want peace of mind and rest.

5. Bayfront

Bayfront 2

The fifth spot is Bayfront, one of Naples’ coolest places ever. With its Mediterranean-style vibes and waterfront views, it feels super luxurious. Driving in an exotic car here (one of our Ferraris, for example) feels like a quick trip to a European seaside town. You’ll find shops selling everything from fashion to home decor. 

When you get hungry, there are waterfront restaurants where you can grab a meal with a view. It’s perfect for a chill drive and a relaxing day out, mixing beautiful scenery with upscale shopping and dining.

The charm of the Bayfront is all about leisure and luxury. Driving along the waterfront, you’ll see yachts docked at the marina and folks enjoying the picturesque boardwalk. The area has art galleries and unique stores, making it a cultural hotspot. 

But the best is that Bayfront hosts all kinds of events throughout the year, like art festivals and live music. After a day of exploring, you can relax at a rooftop bar, sipping cocktails and watching the sunset over the bay. Bayfront’s got it all – luxury, culture, and chill vibes.

6. Port Royal

Port Royal

Last but not least, driving through Port Royal feels like stepping into pure luxury. This exclusive neighborhood has some of the most extravagant homes in the city and is also the perfect spot to take photos of your exotic car. And if you don’t have one, fear not. You can always rent any of our fleet at Prestige Luxury Rentals.

Port Royal’s exclusivity goes beyond just the amazing homes. The area is known by the club of the same name, with fancy amenities like tennis courts, a beachfront pool, and fine dining. Membership here is super coveted, showing the neighborhood’s elite status. The area also has private beach access, so residents get to enjoy the beautiful Gulf waters in peace.

 As you cruise around, take your time to admire the grand estates and lush surroundings. It’s a peek into the lives of the wealthy and a reminder of Naples’ beauty and sophistication. A drive through Port Royal is an elegant trip through one of the city’s most exclusive areas. Driving through Port Royal, you really get a sense of the luxurious lifestyle that defines Naples’ upper crust.
