Marco Island, Florida, Visitors Guide

Marco Island, Florida, is the perfect combination of history and fun in the sun! It is estimated that about 4,000 years ago, the Calusa Indians inhabited Marco Island, and created giant mounds of shells that make up the the northernmost section of the island. This extinct civilization has been protected on Marco Island at the Otter Mound Preserve, where these mounds still exist and many artifacts have been discovered. The most famous discovery was the Key Marco Cat, a small, wooden, panther-like figure, which is now located in the Smithsonian Institution.

Historical relevance aside, Marco Island is the perfect place to become one with nature. With access to the Gulf of Mexico, the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, the Everglades National Park, and marvelous mangrove estuaries, the scenic beauty and nature to explore is practically unparalleled. Whether your searching for shells, fishing for Tarpon, kayaking through the mangroves, golfing at The Rookery, or just relaxing on the beach, there’s something for everyone to enjoy when visiting beautiful Marco Island!
