You’ll find no shortage of fine public marinas for dockage navigating through Gordon Pass into the Gordon River as well as two luxurious yacht clubs. On the west shore of the Gordon River sits Naples City Dock, Naples Boat Club, Old Naples Seaport, and Naples Yacht Club, which are closest to Fifth Avenue South—the heart of the upscale shopping, dining, and entertainment district. Stroll through the many well-known, high- end retailers and unique local boutiques––a favorite for resort wear is Back of the Bay. Authentic licensed replicated jewelry from Royalty and Hollywood Jewelry carries pieces inspired by Jacqueline Kennedy, Princess Diana, Marilyn Monroe, and Marlene Dietrich. Another local favorite is Best of Everything boutique, where an expansive collection of faux jewels boasts bargain prices.
The history, well-preserved architecture and mannerly people make Charleston one of the most adored cities in the world. Locals call it the Lowcountry—because the city is either at or below sea level—or the Holy City since no building can be taller than the tallest church steeple. Charleston’s accolades by well-known travel periodicals include being crowned the “Top Destination in the World,” and for three consecutive years it was named the “Top U.S. City.” Within ten miles of downtown exist three charming beaches: Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island and Folly Beach. If the radius is extended by ten miles tack on Kiawah and Seabrook Islands, two world-class golf destinations.
