What South Florida lacks in fall leaves, it makes up for in stone crabs. Mid-October officially kicks off the season, and to celebrate, Naples throws an annual festival with stone crabs, live music, an ice cream eating contest, stone crabs, raffles, stone crabs, other seafood, boat rides, and 20-plus participating Florida restaurants with -- you guessed it -- stone crabs. You don’t want to miss the traditional “cracking of the first stone crab claw” by local leaders, which will kick-off the festivities at 5pm that Friday. It’s followed by a Bob Marley tribute concert at Tin City, which is always a good idea.
Cost: Free admission (food, drink, and activities priced separately)
