There was only one shop open the day we went. We were disappointed. We do understand this is the low time of the year for Marco Island but there are a lot of families on the island for vacation.

There's really nothing here to look at other than one or two shops. There are a couple of restaurants that would be worth eating at but I would advise only going there if you plan to eat there. This area really should be beefed up...More
