Vacation Marco Island Florida and live it up island style. Marco Island is connected to the mainland by bridge south of Naples and is the northernmost island in the 10,000 Island chain. Take long relaxing strolls along beautiful sandy beaches, listen to great music, indulge in delicious surf and turf, sip on a fruity drink and let the laid back atmosphere become part of you! Marriott’s Crystal Shores beachfront resort sets on the gorgeous Marco Island Beach, and offers on site restaurants, bars and grills, including open air beachfront seating. Shelling the beaches of Marco Island is very popular and there are several guided tours available to remote shelling spots.
You can explore the barrier islands by water, land and/or by air. There seems to be an endless system of waterways, bays, rivers, freshwater lakes and mangroves that fishermen and wildlife enthusiasts alike can enjoy. You will find boating the nearby Everglades a great adventure! There are over a thousand acres of wilderness to explore at Everglades National Park. There are a plethora of tours and expeditions available on Marco Island and in the surrounding areas. Enjoy every water sport imaginable, including parasailing. Exploring Marco Island at six hundred to twelve hundred feet in the air is definitely the way to go for the adrenalin seeker in all of us!
After a few days of relaxing and exploring you may want to hit up the night life in and around Marco Island. The Esplanade is located in the middle of the island and is a large shopping plaza full of restaurants and bars and a nearby pier where you can get a glimpse of dolphins and manatees swimming the bay. CJ’s outdoor bar is a great spot on Thursday nights for chillin’ and listening to music. Towards the southern part of the island is Marco Walk Plaza. Every Friday and Saturday night DaVinci’s turns into a nightclub. How about heading to Goodland, “A drinking town with a fishing problem”? Stan’s is the perfect place for mingling with the locals and listening to live bands.
