Marco Island is a semi-tropical paradise located on the southernmost tip of Florida’s West Coast on the Gulf of Mexico. Only 16 miles south of Naples, 100 miles west of Miami, and 175 miles south of Tampa, it is the is northernmost, largest, and most well-known of the 10,000 Islands that stretch south thru the Everglades to the Florida Keys. Only six miles long and four miles wide most people enjoy its casual, easy paced way of life.
It has a Fifth Avenue, lots of shopping, and a hot real estate market, but the country's healthiest and happiest city is nowhere near New York's "Big Apple." Marco Island and Naples, Florida topped the Gallup-Healthways State of American Well-Being community rankings released in February 2016. The report measured their physical health, social ties, financial security, community, and sense of purpose.
Marco Island is truly a four season vacation destination. Winter daytime temperatures are generally in the 70's to low 80's. Summer temperatures rarely exceed the low 90's and are tempered by summer rains and the almost constant cooling breezes off the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
