Sunset from Sale e Pepe, Marco Island

Hey, Marco Island… Congratulations on your #1 US ranking and #4 world ranking as the Best Island to Visit!  (2014 Travelers Choice Awards)  I’ve been visiting Marco Island for 30 years and watched it grow from slow and sleepy to wonderfully Wow!  (Sorry the secret’s out!)

However, we enjoy traveling around the world and have been on some great islands.  Marco is the one I go back to again and again.  Great beach, super people, fabulous restaurants, and very safe.

With the best climate in the lower 48 and the gentle trade winds, it reminds me very much of Hawaii… without the travel.  Okay, and without the luau and volcanic mountains.  🙂

Year ‘rounders tell me they do tend to forget they live in Paradise.  Check out TripAdvisor.com for info on activities, restaurants, and hotels.  LOVE this place!
