Where is the best place to View the Naples Holiday Boat Parade?
The best place to view is along the Naples Canals and outer walks. Look for Rivo Alto Canal on Naples Island. That is where you will see all of the small boats. Just to give you a little insight…it gets a little crowded on the canals.
The larger boats will be cruising around the Island. I was taking a walk today on Corso Di Napoli. This street faces The Peninsula. If you want to see bigger boat walk to this street. Or my favorite viewing spots below would work for you.
I like Bay Shore Drive North of 2nd Street or on Ocean Blvd along Bay Shore Drive South of 2nd Street. The Peninsula along Bayshore Walk is a good location as well. You can view the parade from the restaurants of Ballast Point Brewery, Boathouse on the Bay and Malarkys in Seaport Village.
