Best Beach Towns in Florida
Naples, Florida (PRWEB) December 05, 2014
It's starting to look like a white winter wonderland in Florida as white power sand is added to the beaches. Naples, one of the best beach towns in Florida for family vacations on the blue green Gulf of Mexico is undergoing an facelift on its beaches. FEMA and the State of Florida are investing nearly $3 million for the 2014 Naples Beach Renourishment Project. The project will add about 79 tons of new sand to a stretch of Naples beaches. Officials in Collier County say the purpose is to fix the damage left by Tropical Storm Debbie two years ago. The project should be finished before Christmas.
The renourishment project isn’t expected to stop tourists from visiting the area for planned family vacations. With temperatures hovering around 80 degrees, Naples is warmer than most of Florida during the cooler months of December through April. The area especially flourishes during the holidays. When people visit the area, whether it’s for the first time, or if they’ve been many times, one can’t help but enjoy all that Naples has to offer.
