Things to do
-Beaches: Over ten miles of pearl-white beach line Marco Island's western seaboard, an easy drive or boat trip from Riverside Club Marco Island accommodation. For more secluded beaches, many of the hundreds of surrounding uninhabited islands have small beaches only accessible by water.
-Nature: Marco Island is the ideal launchpad for exploring the surrounding lagoons, islands and islets that typify the western edge of the Everglades. Flora and fauna abound right on the doorstep of Riverside Club Marco Island holiday homes, while heading east takes guests deeper into the variety of habitats that constitute this most iconic of Florida's wildernesses.
-Shopping: Marco Island is known for its shopping, thanks largely to the wealthy and mature inhabitants, who rightly insist on somewhere pleasant to spend their money. Riverside Club is within walking distance of both the one-off boutiques of Esplanade Shoppes and the larger Marco Town Centre Mall.
-Watersports: Marco Island is inundated with water: rivers are supplemented by man-made canals to guarantee water access to just about any part of the island, meaning a boat can often substitute for a car in getting around. Lots of boats means lots of marinas, and lots of marinas means just about any watersport is catered for.
-Nightlife: The kind of shopping available on Marco Island is a good guide to the kind of nightlife. Laid-back beachside shacks sell beer and crab, while more exclusive seafood restaurants can be found just about everywhere. There are other cuisine options too, of course, and typically the further from the beach they are, the more refined they become.
Weather in Riverside Club Marco Island
Florida's subtropical climate can be testing in the summer for those that don't do well in the heat: the humidity resulting from all the surrounding water makes it feel hotter than it actually is. This typically breaks in afternoon and evening thunderstorms, accounting for the majority of Florida's rainfall. Temperatures may only hit the mid-30°C range, but it can certainly feel hotter. Winter temperatures are much more manageable by contrast, with daily highs in the low-20s and little in the way of precipitation. This mirrors a good British summer, which is why most visitors to Florida arrive during the winter months.
Travel to Riverside Club Marco Island
Getting to Florida couldn't be simpler, thanks to the convenience of fly/drive travel in the US. Getting here by any other method can simply be too much hassle: America is the land of the automobile for good reason. For direct flights from the UK, Miami International Airport is the closest option at 120 miles away. While this may seem quite a distance, a two-hour road trip is quite routine to an American, thanks to inexpensive petrol and a cleverly designed road system. If changing flights isn't a bother, Southwest Florida International Airport is closer, at 47 miles away.
