C'MON is the Newest Kid Friendly Thing To Do in Naples

Yet another exciting family and kid friendly thing to do in Naples Florida!  The Golisano Children's Musuem of Naples, referred to as C'MON, is now open!

No doubt about it, when children play, they learn. C'MON is going to be a place where families can engage and explore new discoveries, making learning fun!  Nestled in next to the North Collier Regional Park and Sun N Fun Lagoon Water Park, the new Children's Museum is a welcome addition to the many kid friendly offerings Naples already features.

A couple of fun exhibits I can't wait to experience when my niece & nephew arrive for Spring Break:
  • The Four Seasons ~ gives kids an opportunity to interact with the four sasons and engage in the fun activities each season brings
  • The Farm & Market ~ experience life aas a farmer and understand how food gets from the farm to the market
  • Journey Through The Everglades ~ explore the sights, sounds and smells of the Florida Everglades by experiencing a day in life of this unique ecosystem
Looking at pictures of the two story sprawling Banyan Tree nestled among the exhibits reminds me of the hours climbing trees as a kid but this one has a prize at the top - the tree house meant to inspire children's imagination as well as body coordinations. Brings back prized childhood memories!

Exhibits were created to meet Florida’s Sunshine State curriculum standards, and all are accessible for individuals with developmental, hearing, physical, social/emotional and visual challenges.
C'MON is closed on Mondays and open for General Admission from 10am-5pm Tuesday through Saturday and 10am-4pm on Sunday.  Admission is $10 for children over the age of 1, adults & grandparents.  C'MON is located approximately 7.5 miles from the Hilton Naples Florida Hotel.

Honor the Free Press at the Hilton Naples Hotel

The Marine Corps League of Naples annually honors a journalist as a way to emphasize the importance of a free press in America, something U.S. Marines have fought to preserve for more than 200 years.

The annual observance was the idea of Michael Trephan, a member and former Public Information Officer of the Marine Corps League of Naples, ET Brisson Detachment #063. Trephan is a former member of the working press and a current member of the Naples Press Club.

Trephan: “One of the most important parts of our country and who we are as a democracy, is a free press.”

The Hilton Naples Hotel is proud to host this year's Free Press Day, honoring Lt. Col. Francis J "Bing" West, Marine Combat Veteran, Author and former Asst. Director of Defense.
