Welcome New Year & New and Returning Friends!
Happy 2022! Naples got the memo that a new year deserves beautiful weather and a whole lot of Florida Sunshine! While states around the US are experiencing colder temperatures, Naples has had mornings in the 50’s and 60’s, afternoons in the 70’s, and evening back in the 50’s and 60’s. With weather like this, there is no stronger reminder why The Village Shops is a destination spot, deserving of a visit in 2022!
Starting with the mornings, there is something so calming about watching the sunrise glisten off the Venetian Bay. We know we aren’t the only ones that feel this way when spotting the dozens of people walking, biking, and jogging up and down Park Shore Dr. and Gulf Shore Blvd. With all of our new and returning friends touching down in Naples, our walkways sure are receiving a lot of traction!
Then, as you pull into The Village Shops parking lot, welcomed by waterfront views and fresh landscaping, the morning continues on a high note. A coffee and one of Naples’ best crepes is waiting for you at Le Petit French Café to fuel the morning and conquer the afternoon.
Speaking of afternoon, that’s when The Village Shops begins to buzz. Store doors are open ready to welcome back shoppers with this year’s fabulous styles and restaurant kitchens are cooking up the day’s lunch specials. The birds are chirping, children are splashing in the north fountain, and shopping bags are piling up.
Just like that, day turns into night and the views and atmosphere continue to amaze! Cotton candy skies, three-course meals overlooking the sunset, the moon peeking out, and The Village Shops is still full of life. A day this good, you don’t know how it could get much better. Well, we do…Ben & Jerry’s ice cream! Head on in to the ice cream shop, pile a delicious waffle cone up with scoops and flavors, and dig in!
Don’t miss out on a day on the Bay this wonderful! We look forward to seeing you soon, but until then, stay connected in the new year!
