Mini Golf

Our family, daughter especially, is a mini golf junkie. Where ever we vacation we always need to find the local mini golf course, and the Marco Golf and Garden mini golf course is probably one of the nicest we’ve played, ever (and we’ve been to many!). The gardens are beautiful, and the course has great hours (open 10AM to 10PM) 7 days a week.

The course is a 5 minute drive or 30 minute walk from Ivory Court.

Bike Rental

When you’re in Marco you’ll quickly realize that everything is either within walking distance, and if you’re not in the mood to walk, then bike might be your next best option.  There’s a great bike rental shop that’s a 10 minute car ride away, or, better yet, Island Bike Shop will deliver your bikes. Rentals start at a very reasonable $50 per week. You’ll notice that we’ve included not only the driving and walking distance to many of the attractions, but, also included the bike time.

Mackle Park

Believe it or not, Mackle Park was voted as the #2 thing to do on TripAdvisor, and for good reason.  There’s a lot to do in the park including a basketball court,  playground, a dog park, walking trail, a large shuffle board game, a sprinkler park, and much more.   The hiking paved path around the 10 acre lake is paved and easy to walk on. The views often include visiting and native birds, reptiles and other wildlife.

It’s a 25 minute walk, or 5 minute bike ride to the park.  I’m not going to give you the drive time, you should bike or walk, it’s worth it.



Naples is a quick 45 minute drive north, and definitely worth the day trip.

Sunny Naples is a popular, sophisticated and charming beach destination on the Gulf of Mexico. It boasts many world-class hotels and resorts along miles of white sandy beaches. The ocean surf is gentle and the people are friendly. Shoppers delight in searching for antiques, home furnishings, clothes and jewellery. With its beautiful neighbourhoods and grand architecture, Naples is elegant, yet the atmosphere is relaxing. Sports enthusiasts spend glorious days pursuing their favourite activity, from golf to tennis to fishing. There are restaurants to suit every taste and budget. Although it is a busy and cosmopolitan city, Naples offers easy access to secluded islands and the wilderness of the Everglades.
