According to the Realty Review: Marco Island was named as the third best island in America this year! Wow! This is HUGE! Ten Islands were listed on March 26th, 2013 and reported by Fox News. Marco was the first of the five Florida islands listed. They mentioned that Marco Island is what every vacationer hopes for…white sandy beaches, sparkling seas with the Everglades and 10,000 Islands in their backyard.
Marco was also featured by CNN Travel in April, 2013 as being one of the “10 places that can change your child’s life!” Keith Bellows, Editor in Chief of National Geographic’s Traveler Magazine, writes about Marco Island and the spectacular nature and wildlife the surround our area.
Mr. Bellows recently visited Marco Island to sign copies of his book at our own “Sunshine Booksellers” book store. Keith Bellows’ new book “100 Places That Can Change Your Child’s Life – from your backyard to the ends of the earth” specifically mentions Marco Island, and the Dolphin Explorer cruise. World renowned Bellows, states that you can introduce your child to marine biology by searching for dolphins. In his book he says “There is a kid’s way of seeing the world, parents need to get out of the way, and stop marching them through the experience (like action packed amusement parks.) When you get them to slow down and experience a place from their prospective, it’s magic.”
Our local convention and Visitors’ bureau P. R. directors said that this recognition “is incredibly significant and it’s huge in terms if recognition and prestige because it’s published by National Geographic Books, the pinnacle of travel publications.”
I have had the opportunity to live and sell Real Estate here in paradise for the past thirty years and I am still, on a daily basis, AWESTRUCK with the magic of Marco!
Debbie and Stephen Barker have published The Marco Review magazines for the past twenty years and go to great lengths to make sure our visitors are thoroughly informed of everything to do. Make sure you nature buffs, explorers, water sport enthusiasts and fisherman read their new feature “Exploring Marco and the Everglades”. It has been an honor and privilege to be part of The Marco Review’s journey over the last twenty years. Happy Anniversary Barker family for a job well done – your magazine is the “golden standard” publication for tourists and Islanders alike. Congratulations! Thank you Debbie and Stephen for your dedication and service.
Marco Island is a “one of a kind” Island Paradise. Some people have called it the Hawaii of the east. I have called it “home” for the past thirty years and I am still in awe of it. And yes, I still get goose bumps when I come over the magical bridge after being away for a while. And yes, I still have epiphanies when I experience the wonders of our area. And yes, I still pinch myself when I experience those unbelievable, spectacular sunrises and sunsets or when I see the dolphins and manatees playing in our backyards. These daily occurrences that too many of us here, unfortunately, take for granted. Not me! I am very thankful for having the privilege and opportunity of living and working here for the past three decades. My famous one liner is “It’s great to be alive and on Marco Island!” I recently re-read “The Last Paradise, the building of modern Marco” by Douglas Waitley, a magnificent book that is highly recommended! It can be purchased at either Sunshine Booksellers stores, The Marco Eagle, or my main office. This book is mandatory reading for all my sales agents and a must read if you are purchasing a property here.'
