Tin City: A Fishing Village Almost Unchanged By Time

    By Knowlera

    Tin City was built in the early 1900s as a clam cannery and boatyard serving the entire fishing industry of Southwest Florida at the time. In the early 1920s, it became crucial to the tourism industry that led to the founding of Naples itself. Today, it's home to more than 40 eclectic local shops offering everything from swimsuits to scrimshaw, local crafts and crystals, T-shirts, fine jewelry and everything in between. It's also a great place to start your exploration of the waters around Naples with a sightseeing cruise, dolphin watching trip or deep sea fishing charter.
