Is MI for retirees only?

We have been renting a home on Captiva Island for the last several years. Unfortunately, the home has sold, and the new owners will no longer be renting the house out. We are 2 families with a total of 12. Captiva does not have any homes available on the bay side (which we love for the fishing) that can accommodate our large group. While totally bummed out that our "home" has been taken off the rental market - we have been searching in surrounding areas and found that Marco Island had some pretty impressive homes big enough to accommodate our group. Our children's ages are 20, 18, 16, 14, and 5. We have friends who tell us that MI is not a place for kids, and they would probably be bored to death. It is not like Captiva was the most happening place after 6:00 pm either - but the kids most enjoyed fishing, swimming, and boating all day. Could someone please shed some light on MI, or if there are other places on the Gulf Coast that might replace our beloved Captiva?

On Marco, don't forget to check out Mackle Park, the community park. There is a great children inspired playground for the younger ones, pick up basketball games, bocce courts, kids' game room and frequent activities...classes, special events, teen activities, outdoor family movies.

Stop by and pick up one of their brochures or access it online at the city website....cityofmarcoisland.com.
