I'm "Within Range" of Marco ... Pre Marco Planning Tips

I'm within a few days of going to Marco for a 2 week trip. Here are a couple things I do in advance of making the flight.

What unique Marco tips can you share?

1) check tides and print out

- saltwatertides.com/cgi-local/floridagulf.cgi

Region/FL Gulf Coast/Cape Sable to Estero Bay/Marco Caxambas Pass

2) check astronomy website and print out the nightly star show

3) send an email out to family and friends of "Where is Waldo" ... listing flight plans and Marco telephone numbers of how to find me.

I'm on the same schedule as you, MarcoRed! Here are some things I do in preparation:

Look for my favorite local musicians: Billy Bridger (schedule on Facebook) & George Orr (funny, sometimes lewd but talented Rod Stewart impersonator who occasionally plays in Naples).

Check out Groupon website for Naples (also has Marco Island stuff)

Make an itinerary for specific days, such as Thursdays at Esplanade & Sundays at Stan's.

Checkout the weather daily in Marco.

View online Marco Island Calendar of Events for fun activities

Once I'm there, I find the sunset times if I can make it to the beach.

Curious.....why Thursdays at the Esplanade? Should we include that in our plans?

Thank you!
