Going last week of December with family. Have young child. Can anyone recommend things to do with a small child in Marco Island with family? Staying at Sunset Cove, anyone here about this place? Should we drive to Naples often, is it close?

Thanks all!

nice day trips from Marco, or anywhere in SWF, would include:

- swamp boat tours south of Marco, everglades park
- Corkscrew swamp park
- barefoot beach
- dog park beach, lovers key
- Coconut Point shopping
- fort myers beach downtown and pier
- Sanibel lighthouse beach shelling and Captiva gap shelling
- Ding Darling drive through nature preserve, Sanibel
- Captiva end of the road beach and Captiva metropolis centre for lunch, all 1/2 block of it
- Edison/Ford Museum Fort Myers and downtown for icecream (daylight with kids)
- Punta Gorda Fisherman's Wharf shopping, sunset dinner at sportsbar at end

a bit more ambitious,
- Boca Chica/Gaspirilla lighthouse and regional history museum through Port Charlotte
- High Speed Ferry to Key West
- especially from Naples, cross the alley to Fort Lauderdale/Miami (but only if you know where you are going)
