"Off" season for Marco Island

I've read that July is the off season for MI. Have I missed something!!! Is it due to the heat or what? Just curious......

It's because Marco is mostly residential and the "season" is for snowbirds. The ones who live up north, but travel south for the winter. Have been to Marco several times "off season" and love it. Walk right in to any restaurant, anything you want to do. It's an amazing place and I'd take it any season!

July / August are regarded as 'low season' on Marco, but having visited the island on 6 or 7 occasions in August, I (clearly) still like the place.

It is very hot & humid (certainly by UK standards!!), there is always the risk of a hurricane at this time of year, but the lack of crowds more than makes up fo rthis (and the very small number of businesses which close) IMHO.
