marco island history Tag

Marco Island located in southwest Florida has always been regarded as a great fishing destination. Located at the north end of the Ten Thousand Islands, Marco Island boasts as being the largest barrier island within the Ten Thousand Islands area. Although now overtaken by high-rise condominiums, it was once home to the mysterious Paleo-Indian tribe, the Calusas. Little is known of this tribe, but you can best believe that they made good use of Marco Island and the treasures that surrounded it.
