Goodbye to Cold Weather!

For many of us, the cold weather takes away from the joys of the holiday season. Here in Marco Island, you can find the best of both worlds: Christmas spirit, and tropical weather! Florida is a sought-after destination for snowbirds, and at Marco Island Lakeside Inn, we welcome everyone looking to dodge the snow and relax in the sand. On December 21st, join us for festive family fun and enjoy the Marco Island Christmas Boat Parade!

Christmas by Boat

You’ve seen decorated houses, maybe even some Christmas-y cars, but have you ever seen a holiday-style boat? Watch as boats, alight with hundreds of colorful decorations, cruise down the Marco River for everyone to enjoy. Creativity is key for skilled participants, and they flex their talents. From Santa to seahorses and everything in between, these boats will satisfy your Christmas cravings. You’ll be full of holiday spirit by the time you leave.

The Snook Inn

Of course, for this visual feast, you’ll want a front-row seat. The Snook Inn on Marco River is prime viewing. Sit right on the river as the boats, decked out in holiday lights, make their way past the restaurant. This location is so good, even the judges will be here! The Snook Inn isn’t just good for the visuals–they also have some of the best food in the area! Caribbean Conch Fritters, Raw Oysters on the Half Shell, and many other delicious options are available on their menu. We also have to mention the Snook Inn’s Famous Grouper Sandwich, which is utterly mouthwatering! Come by boat or come by car and enjoy the Christmas boat show from your stellar seat.

Holiday Escape

For an escape from the cold, a holiday outing, or just a beach trip for fun, Marco Island is the place to go. The Marco Island Christmas Boat Parade is the perfect way to start Christmas week, and you will see boats decorated extravagantly. Nothing describes an “island-style” Christmas quite like that! Enjoy Christmas fun, delicious food, and kick back comfortably. We are so excited about this event, and we hope to see you there.
