Summer Tourist Adventures: Tin City in Naples, FL

In the 1920s, Tin City was the hub of transportation for tourists along the Gordon River in the
heart of Naples' fishing industry. Since then, seven of Tin City's tin roofed buildings were preserved and converted into the Old Marine Marketplace at Tin City in the 1970s. My mom used to visit Tin City while on vacation to Naples long before I was born. It was fun for her to step back in time and see how very little it has changed. There's boutiques chock filled with charming tourist gifts and good old American sea food restaurants like Kelly's that have been serving tourists dockside since my mom went in the 80s. Tin City is the perfect place to find some kitschy treasures, hop on a day cruise for snorkeling and dolphin sightseeing, or even to grab some ice cream.
