Naples Pier in Naples South West Florida

While visiting Naples in South west Florida my family decided to spend our last morning at the Naples Pier before heading home. It was a bit cloudy, but it was still a beautiful day in Naples.

The Naples pier was originally built in 1888 as a freight and passenger dock, but in 1922 a fire damaged the pier and the nearby post office. The pier has also been rebuilt after damage by hurricanes in 1910, 1926 and 1960.

If you are interested in fishing, the Naples pier is the perfect place to go try your luck. There is no fishing license required on the pier, as the city of Naples has a blanket license that covers anyone fishing off the pier. Do it the frugal way and bring your rod and fishing equipment from home, or buy everything you need at the pier. You can get rod and reel line, hooks, leaders, sinkers, floats and bait all for $19.

Now for $19 you better make sure to catch your dinner, if you want to keep your vacation frugal.

To keep your vacation frugal steer clear of the expensive vacation booth and bring your own snack.

After taking a walk on the pier, you can take a walk on the beach, play some volleyball, go for a swim or simply just sit down and enjoy the scenery and atmosphere.

The Naples pier is located at the west end of 12th Avenue South in Naples, Florida.
