Southwest Florida Info - Marco Island

Marco Island, nestled in the mangrove islands of southwest Florida's gulf coast is, at four miles wide by six miles long, the largest of Florida's Ten Thousand Islands. Noted for its lovely beaches, luxurious waterfront homes, fine dining, upscale retailers, small specialty stores, and high standards in welcoming visitors, Marco Island is indeed a world-class resort destination surrounded by miles and miles of pristine, uninhabited islands, bays, creeks, and the Gulf of Mexico.

To the north is the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and its Briggs Memorial Nature Center. To the south lies the sprawling 10,000 Islands with over 70 coastal miles of fly fishing heaven, inhabited only by the tiny fishing villages of Goodland, Everglades City, Chokoloskee and eventually Flamingo. A visit to the Conservancy of Southwest Florida and the Briggs Nature Center takes visitors into the wet wildness of the region. Included in the southerly stretch and ensuring continued protection against coastal development is Collier-Seminole State Park, the 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge, Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve, Big Cypress National Preserve and the daunting wilderness of the 5000 square mile Everglades National Park. 

Collier County has three museums that explore the fascinating history of the region and its various inhabitants, in Naples, Everglades City, and Immokalee. In addition, the Palm Cottage shows visitors a glimpse of the area’s architectural history.
