Naples, Florida is just full of surprises. They come often times, in natural wonders in the nature parks and national preserves, other times they appear to be the Mediterranean-inspired architecture from the streets of the downtown area but sometimes they happen to be celebrities who just love coming back to the place. And as if in a cameo role in a Hollywood movie, they come as quickly as they go and leave the people who were lucky enough to be present on where they were spotted, amazed and bewildered. This is one of the many perks you can get in Naples, Florida.
There are a number of celebrities through-out the US who consider Naples, Florida their home or at least own a property here. They have been increasing in number as the years go along but with the great sea-side view and the palatial homes and mansion that they can purchase, plus the equally luxurious museums and restaurants all over the place; who can really blame them? These notable men and women come from different fields, some come from Hollywood, some are athletes, others are accomplished artists while others are internationally celebrated chefs.

You may see these celebrities at random times when visiting Naples, Florida and one such occasion happened in a restaurant called Sea Salt where, out of nowhere, Saturday Night Fever star and legend, the man himself, John Travolta appeared on the scene and pleasantly surprised the other customers in the restaurant. The disco dance star from the 70’s casually strolled by Third Street South and was drawn by the nice piano music that emanated from Sea Salt. He went in and was acknowledged by the pianist and together they graced the audience with a quick song number. The crowed was visibly amazed by this unexpected visit from Danny Zuko. He wore very casual black sweatshirt and a cap, just right for the laid-back vibe of the city. And after John Travolta graced the audience with a brief greeting and an intimate performance, he stayed around for a little bit then left. Just like that. What can we say? Summer lovin’ happened so fast indeed.
