Americans celebrate with a big fireworks display twice a year in Naples – once for the Fourth of July and then again on New Year’s Eve. Last year on New Year's eve, my sister and brother-in-law went to Miami south beach for watching fireworks. They had to start two hours before midnight because it would be very difficult to find parking and after fireworks it took them two more hours to get out of the traffic. They spent four hours for watching fireworks which lasted for only 5 minutes roughly.

Day 1

This year we were in Naples. We got to know about the fireworks show in Naples. It was scheduled at 7:30 pm. So instead of going back to Miami for fireworks, we decided to stay back and watch the show. The fireworks are ignited from the Naples pier so the best place to see the fireworks is from the beach. The roads were empty but we could not find any space for parking. After roaming for about 20 minutes we fount a spot. We parked immediately and went towards the beach.

The beach was already full with people who came to watch the fireworks. They came prepared with beach chairs, blankets and snacks to relax on the beach. We managed to find a spot on the beach and sat down on the sand.

Before the fireworks started there were flying lanterns all over the sky. The fireworks started at exactly 7:30. It was very beautiful. I thought that it would get boring after watching for few minutes but I was astonished by the creativity in the fireworks. We really enjoyed the fireworks.

It lasted for whole 30 minutes.

Later, my sister insisted that we should eat at Bha Bha Persian restaurant which is her all time favorite. We thoroughly enjoyed eating the food which is just scrumptious. 

Then, we took a stroll in the streets of Downtown Naples and went to an organic ice cream parlor. It had strange flavors of ice cream such as lavender. We tried out some weirdest combination and it turned out be very delicious. 

And there goes the last day of 2016 with so many items off my checklist.
