One of the best places I have ever seen where there is scrumptous food, culture, architecture all thrown in together. A canal runs in the midst of the city and malls and restaurants run parallel to this canal. You find ducks randomly roaming around among the crowd. There is so much energy in the place that it automatically charges you. Visit this place preferably after dusk.
On our way to Naples, instead of taking the normal route which is I-75 interstate highway, we took a different route - I-41 interstate highway through Tamiami Trail which went through everglades. First I thought that it will be like going on a normal road but I was completely surprised when I saw an alligator. Then I saw one more. I started counting but there were hundreds of them.
White Oak Canyon Trail
The hike to the first waterfall is a gradual climb and about a mile and a half. It's dog-friendly, unlike Old Rag - and much easier too. If it has rained be aware that you may have to ford a couple of streams. There are lots of rocks on the trail so be careful if you have ankle problems. The hike is within Shenandoah National Park. Be sure to get there early to find parking!
Crater Lake has to be one of the most beautiful lakes I’ve ever seen, it’s absolutely awe-inspiring. Located in southern Oregon, Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United Sates at nearly 2000 feet. Interestingly, there are no rivers flowing into or out of the lake, which is probably a contributing factor for it’s brilliant blue color and clarity. I visited Crater Lake National Park during a beautiful Fall day, but after seeing pictures of the area covered in snow, I cannot wait to go in the winter someday…it’s a place of immeasurable beauty. Fees: $10 for car and $5 for motorcycle (7 day pass)
