Have you visited Tin City in the heart of Naples? Tin City is a colorful marketplace with restaurants and gift shops. These tin-roofed buildings were originally constructed in Naples during the early 1920s as the center of the fishing industry in our community.
From the 1920s to the 1970s, Tin City businesses exported and processed seafood, while constructing and maintaining the fishing boats. Today, Tin City shows some Southwest Florida charm with locally owned boutique shopping and dining on Naples Bay.
Tin City offers a look into the nautical past of Naples, while intriguing many with its wonderful shops.
