Florida celebrities dish on their favorite places to eat and play in the Sunshine State.

Judge Judy’s Naples

16 of 15

When she’s not taping America’s top-rated daytime television show in Los Angeles, Judge Judy—a.k.a. Judy Sheindlin—lives in Naples with her husband, Jerry. What impresses the judge most about the southwestern Florida city are the beaches. “They rival any in the world, with absolutely spectacular sunsets,” she says.

Eat
Judge Sheindlin’s staple is Amore Ristorante (dinner for two $75), where an intimate Mediterranean-inspired dining room (Tuscan-orange walls and paintings of the Italian countryside) resembles a trattoria in Italy. On the menu? Traditional dishes such as risotto with mushrooms and black truffles. “The food here is consistently good and fresh,” she says.

Indulge
The spa at the beachfront Ritz Carlton, Naples (treatments from $150) is what Sheindlin calls “a great oasis.” It’s one of the biggest in Naples (51,000 square feet), with treatments ranging from hot-stone massages to aromatherapy.

Shop
For a little retail therapy, Sheindlin loves the Waterside Shops, a stretch that includes high-end brands such as Kate Spade and Cartier, along with the lesser-known boutiques along Third Street South (thirdstreetsouth.com).
