In Southwest Florida, just south of Naples, is Marco Island – a charming coastal escape with a laid-back vibe featuring luxury resorts and rentals to keep you pampered throughout your stay.
This paradise coast is a mix of wonder and charm – you have the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the unspoiled wilderness on the other. Boating is still a popular way of life here and visitors can take part in the action! Expect miles of white sand and brilliant aquamarine waters any day you’re in town. You’ll also get to feast on the freshest seafood finds at the waterfront restaurants of the Isles of Capri or Goodland. Narrated boat tours, canoe trips, in-shore fishing, and camping are also must-tries.
Now, if you need a cool place to stay, I’ve found the best VRBOs in Marco Island to make sure your beachfront vacation is unforgettable!
