[raw]Growing up in Naples is surely a blessing in disguise, and just a little different than growing up anywhere else. You live only miles away from the beach, flip flops are appropriate for any occasion, and you stay tan all year long. Naples has been named the happiest and healthiest place to be. It’s home to luxury shopping, mouth watering food, powder sand beaches, and warm weather almost 365 days a year. As a child you basically learn how to swim before you can walk, snow seems like the most interesting thing, you see alligators crossing the street rather than deer, and you hardly own any warm clothing. It’s been a blessing growing up here and you really don’t appreciate it until you leave for a bit. Naples is home and is one of the most beautiful destination towns in the country.
