Naples/Fort Myers, FL

Naples: Pelican Bay

A run along Pelican Bay Blvd., 7 miles north of downtown Naples, is a great way to experience the waterfront, lovely foliage, and gorgeous Florida homes. It is sidewalked, along a wide street, and a favorite of local running groups. Experience an interesting array of architecture, white sandy beaches, and a backdrop of native Florida mangroves along three miles of the Gulf of Mexico in the northwestern section of Naples. Pelican Bay is home to a private golf & beach community and is the only neighborhood in Naples with beach-side dining.

A good place to start the run is at Artis — southwest Florida’s home for the visual and performing arts. It has become a landmark within the community and offers a multitude of events throughout the year, plus free parking on campus!
