Is it raining right now in Naples?
Looking for an indoor activity? It’s normal to have rain every day, for the greatest part in the afternoons during August and September becoming more scarce at the end of September.
Storm clouds typically gather in the afternoon, darkening the sky, then dumping their rain upon the parks, often accompanied by a fearsome show of lightning and thunder.
Well not to worry, we have lots to do in Naples (rain or shine)!
During the summer months its not unusual for it to rain multiple times a day.
Typically it will rain in the late afternoon between 2pm and 6pm. Unless its a storm it will usually stop.
Below are our top actives to do when its raining in Naples:
#1: Golisano’s Children’s Museum of Naples
The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples is a two-story 30,000 square foot indoor cultural institution including permanent and temporary interactive exhibits galleries, Backyardville, a Family Resource Library, exploration rooms, Garden Cafe and Museum Store as well as space for staff, volunteers and ongoing operations. All facilities are designed to be fully accessible.
As much as we would like Naples to be beautiful and sunny for its residents 365 days a year, overcast skies and rain are an undeniable reality in any Florida vacation. However, have no fear — rainy days in Naples just became much more fun.
In fact, the new Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples or “C’MON” will have your kids hoping for a day of rain. This two-story, 30,000 square foot building offers 10 permanent and temporary exhibit galleries for children developed by experts in child psychology to foster curiosity, creativity, empathy and self-esteem through state-of-the-art technology. Kids leave this museum dreaming of their next visit, while adults leave with a feeling of satisfaction that their children just enjoyed a day of thought-provoking and educational fun.
C’MON summer camp in Naples
If your child just can’t get enough of C’MON, or perhaps if you need a break from your child, the Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples offers very popular Monday – Friday day camps in the summer for kindergartners through sixth-graders. Camp runs from 9 to 5 (9 to 12 for Kinder Camp) and has varying themes each week, ranging from “Cool chemistry” to “Sculpture: form it your way.” Camps are administered by enthusiastic C’MON faculty who create a hands-on, structured learning environment for their campers. The cost for one week of camp is $500 per child.
Family Fund Days at the museum
Looking for a fun, kid-friendly family outing? C’MON may provide exactly what you are looking for. C’MON frequently hosts fun events such as sand-castle building contests on the beach or “family fun day” festivals. A list of upcoming events is on the C’MON website. Children with disabilities are also encouraged to participate in all that C’MON has to offer. Along with offering many different specialized technologies for physically disabled children such as wheelchairs, visual transition timers and noise-reducing headphones, C’MON hosts sensory nights once a month for children with autism.
The many indoor activities and learning opportunities that C’MON has to offer makes it a perfect place for children ages 2–10. Grandparents also take note: this a very fun, yet not physically demanding outing with the grandkids. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from 11a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults and children; infants under age 1 are admitted free.
