The largest and northernmost of the Ten Thousand Islands, Marco Island radiates a relaxed rhythm that's friendly and welcoming to families. Located near Naples and spread out along a 4-mile stretch of white sandy beach overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, luxury resorts and high-rise condos dot the coastline. Whether viewed from a penthouse suite or a causal cafe on the beach, Marco's spectacular sunsets are celebration-worthy.

A great way to get to know the local area and its residents is by taking an interactive tour. Water-bound choices range from a kid-friendly dolphin cruise to jet-ski eco-excursions, where you can explore mangrove forests and shell-laden barrier islands. Options for inland sightseeing include tours by Segway or by bike. Whatever your pleasure, be sure to slather on the sunscreen.
