Want to know what it's like to retire in Naples?
Originally from Massachusetts, I attended graduate school at The University of Pennsylvania. Choosing to remain there, I taught in inner city Philadelphia for 38 years. I retired in 2012 and moved to Naples soon thereafter. It was a decision I have never regretted!
The beauty of the beaches and the number of great fine dining options in the area.
Newcomers need to learn the back roads to avoid frustration during the busier seasons!
All the great outdoors activities I get to enjoy year round, like biking, kayaking, swimming, and fishing! I spend at least four hours a day enjoying the outdoors, even in the summer months.
I would definitely miss the beautiful beaches!
Naples is a welcoming city, and finding volunteer opportunities that fit can bring you joy and many wonderful new friends! I volunteer at the Harry Chapin Food Bank once a week and through this I have made some great friendships. I joined a fishing ladies group and now paint as part of the Empty Bowls Project. Fun and rewarding!
