What is Explore Naples NY™?
(powered by the Naples Area Economic Development Coalition, Inc.)
Explore Naples NY™ is an exciting new not-for-profit that has assembled a group of like-minded Neapolitans from various local organizations who seek to uncover and unleash the potential success of Naples as a destination. From nurturing new entrepreneurs, to promoting and preserving our historic past, to sharing our natural beauty, Explore Naples NY™ seeks to bring all of these elements together in unique experiences to share with our visitors and residents. We believe that Naples possesses highly desirable experiences like no other community anywhere else in the Finger Lakes!
“If you make Naples a place people want to visit,
you make Naples a place where people want to live.
If you make Naples a place where people want to live,
you’ll make Naples a place where people want to work.
If you make Naples a place where people want to work,
you’ll make Naples a place where business has to be.
And if you make Naples a place where business has to be,
you’ll make Naples a place where people have to visit.”
—Inspired by Maura Gast, Irving, TX, CVB and DMAI Chair, July 2009.
