Planning a family summer beach vacation, a little fun in the sun? The 2016 Traveler’s choice awards are in for the top 10 U.S. Islands, according to the Today show.
Guess who made the list once again…Marco Island, Florida! All votes were based on traveler’s reviews over a 12-month period. The Island’s restaurants and attractions were among the top in reviews and ranking.
“With common traits like breathtaking beaches, exciting activities and popular hotels and restaurants, the Travelers’ Choice Islands are favorites of the TripAdvisor community,” said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor.
Marco Island was also voted in 2014 by TripAdvisor and Fox Travel News as one of the best Islands in the world. We are flattered but not surprised that our idyllic home away from home has made the top 10!
Marco Island, the largest of Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands, is tucked away in the Gulf of Mexico. It is a small, comfortable Island, 6 miles by 4 miles, linked to the mainland by two bridges. Marco Island’s sub-tropical climate, pristine white beaches, and legendary sunsets that attract vacationers from all over the world. Watching a Marco Island sunset is a spiritual experience that touches one’s soul for a lifetime!
