Marco Island is a Small Piece of Paradise

Posted May 12, 2010 by Jaclyn Liechti

Marco Island Marco Island is the largest of the 10,000 islands off Florida's Paradise Coast, with six miles of white sand beaches tempting snow birds away from home. The off-peak summer season can be a good time to head south, since prices are lower and the Gulf of Mexico is just as beautiful. Relaxing beaches, tasty seafood, and friendly wildlife are just a few of the reasons visitors flock to this 25-square-mile piece of paradise.

We go to Marco Island every winter to be with the friends we've made over the past 5 years. Marco is a great place filled with fine food, friendly people, and a really good library!
