     Though we hope our weather is idyllic for your stay with us at The Boat House Marco, every now and then we see days where the rain falls.  On the off chance this occurs while you are with us, there are lots of fun indoor venues offering entertainment (and air conditioning!).

Rainy Day Things to Do on Marco Island

Marco Island Historical Museum - Located at 180 South Heathwood Drive, Marco Island. This museum is one of five museums within the Collier County Museum family, where admission is free all summer long at all locations.  Ours is a step back into time, where you can explore the history of the Calusa Indians within the many displays and the re-created village. This summer marks the 25th anniversary of the museum. On display through September 26, 2019 you’ll find: BUILDING A DREAM: THE 25 YEAR HISTORY OF THE MARCO ISLAND HISTORICAL SOCIETY.  This exhibit exalts the efforts of the small group of friends that passionately worked to keep the history and heritage of our island alive and thriving - leading to the construction of our museum in 1994.  Check out their website.

Marco Island Center for the Arts - Located at 1010 Winterberry Drive, Marco Island.  With a variety of events, classes, and exhibits throughout the year, head over to the website to discover your rainy day interlude.

Marco Movies  - Located at 599 S. Collier Blvd, Marco Island. This movie theater is an experience in itself, with plush leather seating, in theater tableside service from a full menu - popcorn is just the beginning!
