History of Fifth Avenue South

Fifth Avenue South has always been an important part of the fabric in Naples, FL. For many years it was known as "Main Street." The main street consisted only a few businesses located on fifth avenue about three blocks east and west from 9th Street south: Ed Frank's Garage with its small block shares shops; The Chamber Of Commerce which also served as their city hall - not to mention they had phone company train depot , Jack “Doc” Prince Liquors store at this point too! It got even more interesting when you factor-in U S 41 (aka Tamiami Trail) intersection right here.

In the 1930’s there used to be a golf course at the end of Fifth Avenue South near the beach.In 1949 the Bank of Naple, the city’’s first bank, opened for business.  The late 1940s saw the development of Naples' downtown and Fifth Avenue South into a place for commerce as well as a cultural destination. In 1949, this trend continued with construction on Cambier Park underway - today it's one venue among many where visitors can enjoy concerts or festivals while also using them as picnic spots.

Fifth Avenue South was already a popular destination for shoppers and diners before it became the site of major transformations in Southwest Florida. The early 1990s saw these changes, when planners recognized that Fifth avenue should be more than just an extension into downtown Naples but rather its own neighborhood with distinct cultural attractions like museums or performing arts centers to make full use out all its potential; this goal has since been achieved through successful projects such as enlisting renowned urban planner Andrés Duany (who also helped transform Miami's Coral Gables Arts District) on behalf fifth-avenue southward progress.
