Hi everyone, I must say I love these Tripadvisor forums as everyone on here is so helpful! Just to give you our background so you can give better advice :), we spent two summers vacationing on Siesta Key and Anna Maria Island. We love being able to rent a house with our own pool, which was easier on Anna Maria, but we found the island a little too slow. It was hard to find an open ice cream shop in the summer and no mini golf to be found. So, this past week we went to Myrtle Beach which has almost too much to do!!! I found I miss my FL gulf coast beaches and beautiful sunsets so next year we will go back to Florida. I've heard great things about Marco Island and have found a house I would love to stay in.... but I'm just hesitant about what we could find to do with our kids-- its fun to squeeze in one museum, mini golf or some kind of indoor activity to break up the sun time. How far of a drive would those things be? Is there mini golf and ice cream shops on the island?
Thanks for the advice!
