We had never been to Naples in December and there really is a lot to do with the holidays and great weather.

We went to a tree lighting at Mercado!

These are the before and after pictures of the tree lighting.  The whole area was crowded with people and families, but we were able to get into a new burger restaurant called the Counter (build your own burger!), which was really delicious.  The tree was literally out the door of the restaurant, so we got to see the whole lighting ceremony.  

This photo was taken at another new restaurant we tried on the water at Tin City called Pinchers.  We ate outside and enjoyed the view of the boats coming in and out.  We find out where we could take a sunset cruise and see the city of Naples from the water.

We also went to a Christmas walk, where they closed the main street (5th Avenue in Downtown Naples) and they had another tree lighting ceremony there (below is the tree in front of the theatre!) and lots of things for kids to do.  We ate at Cafe Luna that night, as hubby likes it there!
We tried a new beach on Marco Island called Tiger Tail.  It was quiet.  For us northerners, a 79 degree day is perfect for the beach.  But those Floridians, prefer it warmer, so we had the place to (almost) ourselves!

And we did have the pool to ourselves a LOT.  It was 75 one day and hubby and I were the only ones in the pool that morning.  Later in the afternoon, more people came to the pool.  They said the morning temperatures were a little too cool! LOL  (This is Bobo below with hubby - our friend from Naples)

And of course, we had to go see the sunset on our last evening.  Beautiful as usual!
