The artificial canals and islands of Naples were the creation of land speculator Arthur Parson in the early 1900s. Naples was conceived as a romantic residential district. The three islands are filled with narrow streets, canals and beautiful houses.

Most of the streets on the island have Italian names.

There are different ways to visit Naples: by foot or with a gondola through the canals. Long Beach is one of eight places in the Western United States where tourists may ride in a gondola.
