December in Naples, Florida

December is a great time to visit Naples, Florida as the town gets ready to not only indulge in so many celebrations, but gear up for high season as well. If you're looking to get away this month but not during the holidays, the first half of the month is typically quieter as people wind down from Thanksgiving but get ready to gear up for Christmas & New Years. But, we think there is no better time than to celebrate with sand & sunshine towards the end of the month! Swap out a week of snow for a week of white sand beaches, blue skies, warm sunshine & a Floridian flare. We do recommend booking in advance during this time for the best deals available as the holidays tend to fill up quickly.

Naples, Florida Weather in December

It's getting chilly around the world, but you can still enjoy comfortable and mild temperatures here in Naples.

With very little rain, you're welcome to enjoy all day sunshine for the endless activities you can enjoy from fishing, Everglades excursions, sunset cruises, golfing, shopping and more.

Naples - What to Wear in December

Naples is well known for fashion and amazing shopping, but you can pack comfortable, casual clothing and blend right in! Most restaurants do not require a formal dress code so we recommend resort casual for evening dining. You'll definitely want to pack your swimming & sunning clothing including flip flops, bathing suits and cover ups, shorts, hats, etc. We do recommend bringing a light sweater for cooler evenings.

The resort offers a well-stocked store in the lobby including sundries like sunscreen, Maui Jim sunglasses and toiletries but also fashionable bathing suits, trendy cover ups, sweaters, logo gear and local Naples trinkets.

Waterside Shops is a collection of over 60 upscale retailers and restaurants, conveniently located within walking distance to the resort. The shops - including retailers like Lilly Pulitzer, Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren, Anthropologie and more - are a beautifully landscaped outdoor mall anchored by Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstroms.


In December, escape winter's bite and enjoy Florida's exciting holiday events.  Downtown Naples hosts it's annual 5th Avenue South Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting.  It even snows at night during the holiday season on 3rd Street South.  Come enjoy the fun with us in Naples, while enjoying the warmest temperatures in the country.
