Paradisecoast.com has this to say about Florida’s Paradise Coast,
“Welcome to the one destination that offers the idyllic Florida experience, along with excitement and adventure found nowhere else on earth. Swaying coconut palms and sweeping white-sand beaches only begin to tell the story. Here you’ll discover a gentle pace and a tropical ambiance amid excitement, exploration and discovery. Thrill to the outdoor adventure of the Everglades. Discover one-of-a-kind culinary delights infused with local traditions. Immerse within a whirl of shopping excitement. Plunge into a water-filled world that offers Florida’s best fishing. Or find inspiration in its breathtaking array of art and culture.”
I couldn’t agree more, and Wikipedia explains that Florida’s Paradise Coast is actually just the colloquial name for vacation destinations in Naples, Florida and Marco Island. In 2005, Naples was voted the best beach in America by the Travel Channel, as well as the number one small art city in America.
