Moving to Marco Island
Marco Island has some beautiful scenic, high elevations and like Naples to the north, it offers a tropical climate known for its distinct wet and dry season with most of the rainfall between June and October.
Marco Island has an interesting history dating back as far as 500 BC. But of course, early development of the area came in the late 1800s when Collier founded the village of Marco on the island in 1870, and in 1896, his son opened the hotel on the island known today as the Olde Marco Inn. Clam digging was a major industry throughout the early 1900s and ferry service began in 1912 operating between Marco Island in the Isles of Capri. In 1927, the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad began service to the island after extending its route from Fort Myers and Naples. The first vehicle bridge was built in 1975 and of course, the island's ferry service was discontinued after the Goodland Bridge opened. In the 1960s, significant development took place and it was incorporated as a city in 1997.
