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.
The Artist Colony at the Esplanade: The island's first artist colony is located in three locations on the Esplanade, a recent addition of stores and restaurants on the waterfront. Browse among the offerings of seventeen different local artists, who specialize in different media such as photography, painting, concrete, sculpture, clay, and collage. Whether you want to purchase an artist's creation or commission your own interpretation of Marco Island, The Artist Colony at the Esplanade is the place to shop for unique souvenirs that you'll be proud to display at home.
