Marco Escapes: Spring Awakens

Mid- March means spring has sprung! Time to take off the sweaters and replace them with your spring break bathing suit and get down to Marco Island. It seems this time of year that the sun shines a little brighter, the seagulls caw a little sweeter and the wildflowers bloom brighter, it is a beautiful time to be outdoors. As usual, Southwest Florida is host to lots of fantastic local events for locals and visitors alike to enjoy. What better way to celebrate the 2015 spring season with a flower show and a celebration of one of the great natural wonders of the planet?
