The 15 galleries here make up one of the best art collections in the southwest Florida region. The 14-foot-tall art-covered entrance gates provide a dramatic entrance to the museum's fantastic pieces. The permanent collection includes some impressive modern American works, including spectacular glass installations by Dale Chihuly — you'll find yourself marveling at his amazing colorful chandelier and ocean-themed ceiling decor. Recent visitors said seeing Chihuly's pieces more than justify the admission price.

The museum is located within the Artis—Naples and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Admission for adults costs $10; children younger than 17 can enter for free. For more information on current exhibits and upcoming events, visit the museum's website.

#1 Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park

About 12 miles north of Old Naples is the Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, one of the best beaches in the city. Covering 166 acres of land, the beach here has great facilities, including plenty of parking, bathrooms, beach rental equipment, food stands and picnic spots. The water is clear and serene while the sand, according to many visitors, is covered with shells but has plenty of soft spots to sit on. The park also offers quality spots to snorkel (you can rent gear here too) at a reef offshore.

You can also get a feel for the rest of the flora and fauna that call the park home with a nature tour. Rangers guide you through the area; if you're an avid watcher of Animal Planet, you might try and time your visit for the loggerhead turtles' nesting season (May through October). You're also bound to see a variety of colorful birds during your tour.
