28 OF THE BEST THINGS TO DO ON MARCO ISLAND FOR YOUR NEXT TRIP

Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens

The Naples Zoo is a favorite. The square footage is nothing like the San Diego Zoo and but still bigger than zoo’s like the Como Zoo in MN. The Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens has a lot of features that you won’t find elsewhere in the country. They host a lot of animals indigenous to Florida, but they also have the Big Three, Lions and Tigers a Bears. Some of the best features of the Zoo is the boat ride to see the primates. They also Giraffe feeding that the kids can partake in. But my favorite part about the zoo is the birds that wander around. You’ll find them everywhere.

Pirates of Marco Island

Your kids will love getting to step aboard Black Pearl Pirate Ship. Along the way, the kids will learn to talk, sing and dance like a pirate, as they become buccaneers on the high seas. On their hour-long adventure, they get to act like pirates in search of the person that stole the keys to their treasure chest. Once they meet up with him, the kids will get to fire cannons at the other ship as they do battle. They depart out of the Rose Mariana.

Everglades Wonder Gardens

This adventure is an hour north of the island but entirely worth it. The Everglades Wonder Gardens is old Florida at its’ best. Complete with massive gardens and animal sanctuary. They are home to tortoises, flamingos, alligators and so much more.

We visited the Everglades Wonder Gardens before hurricane Irma came through. After the hurricane, the community rallied together and helped to rebuild and plant a lot of the trees that had come up. And today it’s thriving. I highly recommend this stop if you get the chance.

Visit the Beach

Tigertail Beach is one of a few public beaches on the island. What makes this beach different from rest is the tidal lagoons managed by the Big Marco Pass Critical Wild Life Area. In the lagoons, you’ll find horseshoe crabs, needlefish and some of Florida’s fighting conchs. (Free but will have to pay for Parking)

For those wanting to explore a little more than just the beach, there is also a barrier island. The island was formed from an old sandbar known as Sand Dollar Spit. It’s accessible by crossing the lagoon. Make sure to watch the tides when crossing.

On the beach, you can take advantage of the different beach rentals, like paddleboards, kayaks and electric boats. They have a full-service restaurant and Butterfly Garden. Tigertale Beach is open 8 am to Sunset!

Airboats

The best way to see the Everglades is to take an airboat tour. There are a few different things to look for in a trip. Did you want an ecological tour focused on the wild and plant life of the Everglades? This is your best chance to see alligators, crocodiles, and raccoons. But if you want a high-speed ride through the mangrove tunnels, you’ll want to venture to Everglade city. The tours do their best to show you wildlife, but their primary focus is providing you with a thrilling boat ride.

Animal Sanctuary

An animal sanctuary is the best way to see rescued animals. It’s also a great way to get closer to some of those indigenous to Florida in a safe manner. Captain Jacks Animal Sanctuary is home to the Florida Panther, Lions, Tigers, Otters, Snakes, Turtles, Crocodiles, and over 100 alligators. They have an Alligator show that wraps up with the opportunity to hold your very own alligator at the end. You can get into this sanctuary for free if you purchase an airboat tour with them.

 

Relaxing on Marco Island

Watch the Borrowing Owls

A unique part about Marco Island is the Burrowing Owls that have taken up residence. These owls are protected which is why you will see their holes marked off with rope and keep back signs. Early morning and around sunset, they come out of the homes and perch on their stands waiting to hunt. Don’t get too close, otherwise, they will go back inside and hide. The locals like to call them Hootie owls. (Free)

Sunset Walk on the Beach

Take advantage of the waterfront properties and enjoy a beautiful sunset walk. There is nothing more relaxing than watching the sun go down. The only thing better is watching the sunset after it rains, the colors you’ll see are once in a lifetime. (Free)

Marco Island Historical Museums

The Marco Island Historical Museum hosts a lot of photographs and memorabilia from the earliest days. The museum is a free attraction celebrating the unique history of the Island. This is a perfect thing to visit on a Rainy Day. (Free) (Rainy Day Activity)

Shopping in Naples and on Marco Island

Tin City is where you want to go shop in Naples. This was destined for tourist if you are not in search of touristy trinks steer clear. The shopping center has a mix of restaurants and ocean side boutiques. Tin City has everything under the sun, from toys for kids, to handmade jewelry, to collectibles. The stores are all connected, which is great on a rainy day. The only thing I’ve experienced like this is in Pikes Place Market in Seattle. (Rainy Day Activity)

Shopping in Marco Islands is best at the Esplanade Marina. Located in their downtown area, they have an art gallery, hair salon, coffee shop and of course shopping. (Rainy Day Activity)

Sit Poolside and Relax

Ok no-brainer, but you have no idea how hard this is for a person like me. You should embrace the island life and take things a little slower. But on Marco Island, this is a great activity. If you are renting a property, chances are it will come with a pool. Otherwise, the hotel isn’t a bad option either. (Free)

Naples Botanical Gardens

Spend some time strolling through the Naples Botanical Gardens. They have the best collection of plan life in southwest Florida. The grounds are broken out into ten different gardens, including Brazilian, Asian, and a Water garden.

 

Adventure Activities on Marco Island

Kayaking on Marco Island

Any chance to get a paddle in my hand, I’m game. That’s why I love the Paddle Marco Island Kayaking Tour. The tours take you all through the mangroves tunnels that surround Marco Island. It’s all inside a National Wildlife Refuge. Be on the lookout for dolphins, manatees, and crocodiles as you paddle around. The experienced guides will make sure you have a great time.

Paddle Board

Marco Island has some excellent paddleboarding locations. The favorites are Caxamas Park due to its barrier islands, sandbar, and Dolphins. The other is Tigertail Beach. You can rent paddle board Paddle Marco on the south side of the Island in Caxambas Park, or at Tiger Tail Beach through other vendors.

Nashville, where several bluegrass music stars have gotten their begin—Dolly Parton and Blake Shelton among them—has reliably drawn individuals searching for a place to get extraordinary unrecorded music while hurling back a couple (or more) brews at a nearby honky-tonk. Be that as it may, overlook its different charms and attractions you’ll be distressfully passing up a major opportunity. This very nearly 250-year-old city flaunts a full-scale imitation of the Parthenon (finish with a 42-foot-tall statue of Athena), many incredible climbing trails, a blooming foodie culture, and that’s just the beginning. Flights to Nashville International Airport are less expensive than at any other time—there’s extremely no reason not to take an end of the week side trip to the capital of Tennessee.

Best spots for live music

While known for its down-home music, Nashville additionally has a thriving jazz and twang scene. Many bars offer unrecorded music daily, and on the off chance that you make a beeline for Broadway on an end of the weeknight you can’t toss a stick without hitting a honky-tonk with a murmuring performer inside. In case you’re searching for live jazz, you can’t beat Rudy’s Jazz Room, where you can nosh on creole and New Orleans-style toll while gifted jazz artists do their thing in a personal, New York-affected condition.

Down home music fans should make a straight shot to Legend’s Corner, a self-broadcasted honky-tonk cantina found smack amidst Broadway. The dividers are canvassed in bluegrass music records and it has nearly constant unrecorded music from 10 am to past midnight on ends of the week.

 

In the event that you can’t settle on a class, look at Layla’s, another gladly self-declared honky-tonk. Artists there play anything from nation to rockabilly to twang. No one can really tell what’s in store when you venture inside its well-worn inside. With two bars, there’s no compelling reason to stress over being stuck by others like sardines in a tin. Regardless of where you sit, you’ll have the capacity to hear the unrecorded music uproarious and clear, so stake out a stool and appreciate the ride.

BBQ that’ll make you drool

The primary thing you should think about grill in the south is that it is an intense undertaking. Pride and legacy are basically prepared in, and individuals have staunch sentiments on which style is the best.

While not all around respected, it’s difficult to contend with the lip-smacking interest of the entire hoard grill. What’s more, in Nashville, nobody shows improvement over Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint. Grab a place to sit at Martin’s and you’ll appreciate the crown jewels of more than 25 years of aggregated grill shrewdness, methods, and trials from establishment proprietor Pat Martin.

Everything from sides to sauces is produced using scratch each day beginning at 5 am, however, the smoking procedure starts the day preceding. On the off chance that pork’s not your most loved protein, they additionally serve up a mean smoked turkey or chicken, brisket, catfish, and hotdog in an assortment of ways. Attempt a Redneck Taco (your decision of BBQ over house-made hoecake and slaw), a Full Slab of Ribs (wet or dry rubbed), or wickedly flavorful chicken wings with a side of Devil’s Nectar plunging sauce.

Take in some history

On the off chance that the main thing you think about Andrew Jackson is that he’s on the twenty-dollar greenback, you might need to stop by Hermitage, his 200-year-old bequest. Investigate the seventh president’s old stepping grounds and take a voyage through the house he once lived in—cheerfully they’ve refreshed the pleasantries to incorporate cooling, so you won’t need to fight with the sweltering Nashville warmth should you visit amid the late spring.

In the event that you can’t swing an outing to Athens, Nashville’s full-scale reproduction of the Parthenon will give you a vibe of Greek recorded engineering. (Possibly nosh on a few olives and gyros a while later to get in the state of mind before you visit.) Built at the turn of the nineteenth century for the Tennessee Centennial Exposition, this sublime bit of design was never expected to be a long haul working regardless of its excellence and loftiness; the city intended to decimate it after the presentation. Be that as it may, its ubiquity with inhabitants and vacationers and the expense of decimation spared it from its indeterminate destiny. Inside, it contains fine art and models by eighteenth and nineteenth-century American craftsmen including a terrific 12-ton statue of Athena.

A walk to remember

Visitors interested in Nashville’s wild charms will appreciate the bevy of hiking trails just outside the city. A longtime favorite is the Mossy Ridge Trail. It’s a 4.5-mile loop through lush woods and filled with chattering birds. It has enough hills and ridges for you to work up an appetite—all the better to appreciate some hot chicken. Just make sure to leave enough time to slow down and take in the sights and the sounds.

If you can’t bear to leave without a souvenir

Bring forth Show Print has been turning out famous music indicate blurbs for Nashville craftsmen for more than 140 years, and now you can possess an essence of the business with a reproduction print. You can even visit their Haley Gallery, which features prints of unique notices and translations from the neighborhood and national craftsmen.

HIKING WITH A BLIND DOG AT GOOSEBERRY FALLS

On my mission to finish a couple of the Hiking Club Trails on our North Shore Adventure, I needed to confirm Gooseberry Falls. I’ve been to Gooseberry Falls each year now throughout the previous three years, and each time I climb somewhat unique of a way. This time I had another test notwithstanding the Hiking Club, I would climb with a visually impaired pooch.

This post contains subsidiary connections. On the off chance that you make any buys, it won’t cost you anything additional, yet I will make a little commission.

I grabbed a book Hiking the North Shore: 50 awesome day climbs in Minnesota’s tremendous Lake Superior locale by Andrew Slade, to get the down and out on the experiences. On my past treks, we completed a circle to the principle falls. The next year I did the Fifth Falls circle with my sister. This year, we chose to take the Hiking Clubs circle. After my fizzled endeavored at finding the secret word at Myre-Big Island State Park, I was resolved like never before to get this one. As indicated by the manual, this trail was altogether simpler. It would have been significantly shorter, so I figured I would have a superior possibility at it. Two miles would be simple for the children and my flabby butt to deal with.

Hiking with a Blind Dog

The greatest hindrance we had was the manner by which to climbing with our visually impaired canine. Our pug most likely would have had a decent time strolling it in his childhood, yet as he’s matured, he’s turned out to be visually impaired and hard of hearing, making it harder than any time in recent memory to get him on the trails. We didn’t love deserting him in the camper either. He could get terrified and begin yelping. Since the guidelines of the campground disallowed deserting pets, it wasn’t a hazard we needed to take. At that point, I got the possibility of a knapsack! I had my little hydration pack with me, yet after a fast attempt, we discovered that it was too little, however, it was conceivable. We rapidly raced to the store and grabbed a greater size one with bigger lashes.

We synced the sides to give him soundness and collapsed down the front, giving him a lot of outside air. The North Shore gave him a cool wind consistently. He adored it. Next time we go, I’m conveying a couple of trekking shafts to help balance out the weight. I additionally discovered that they offer a rucksack, particularly for this reason. The K9 Sports Sack gives the canine a chance to sit looking ahead. Work with bigger tires and some extra side ventilation that will help in the event that you are climbing in hotter atmospheres.

The best piece of taking him was amid seeing the responses of individuals through the more prevalent piece of the recreation center. They’d stroll by and see our boxer strolling and afterward instantly say how adorable the doggie was. At that point, they’d stroll by, and we’d hear the mumbles and snickers of the pug in the rucksack. For those that had scornful comments about a pooch waiting to be conveyed, we’d simply clarify that he’s visually impaired and can’t walk that well. They rapidly comprehended. Through the preliminary, we’d keep an eye on him regularly to ensure he wasn’t getting hot and we’d give him some water from a water bottle. He was in paradise getting the chance to smell everything and be conveyed like a sovereign.

 

The Hiking Club Trail

Alright, back to the trail. The climbing trail, we excellent. Pleasantly prepared and separated. In the event that I felt that the Fifth Falls Trail didn’t have swarms, I wasn’t right. This trail we saw just a couple of other individuals doing it. We were at last out in the wild far from the hurrying around of the travelers. The perspectives of the lake were, and it did exclude a great deal of heights changes. Which makes it an ideal tenderfoot climb for the children and disobediently for somebody that is conveying a 35lb rucksack.

Visiting this trail, you see Gooseberry Falls Park for an alternate point of view. On our last outdoors trip here, we sat at shoreline taking a gander at the bluffs and thought about how individuals got over yonder! Presently we were there taking a gander at the general population on the shore being taken a gander at with jealousy. The breeze falling off the lake was a decent reward for the time we spend in the protected woods.

The Hunt for the Password

We made it more than part of the way through the circle without seeing one of those darn Hiking Club secret key signs. I was beginning to believe that I’d never discovered it. What’s more, on the off chance that I couldn’t get it here, I would abandon the fantasy inside and out. At that point, my girl chose she needed to stop at another neglect. I was somewhat hesitant yet figured what the hell. As I was moving fidgety to get once more, I looked behind me at a sanctuary. Covered up inside the asylum was the sign I had been searching for. I would have gone altogether directly past it. I had no clue that these missions would be something other than a preliminary heading sign, however a really shrouded journey. Since I had my first secret phrase, I’m scared. I need to do them all.

But I realized that I completely overestimated my hiking ability. I’m going to have to work up to some of these bigger hikes later. And no way would I be able to tackle two in one day. As much as I’d like to say that kids will never be able to handle it, it’d be a lie. I guess that means I’ll just have to make another trip up here to get them all in! I’m in no rush.

Pin it for later
