While some residents of Florida may have lost their “vacation,” feel for the sunshine state, there are still plenty of hidden treasures that will allow our residents at Ridge Landing to feel like a tourist once again. One of our favorite flying destinations is just a swift flight to the Gulf Coast and contains 100 miles of waterway within just 24 miles of land. Marco Island, although familiar sounding, is a place that many residents of Florida never travel to. However, we’re going to lay out everything that you need to know to plan your personal flight and visit to Marco Island.

So, let’s start with the first question that concerns our residents at Ridge Landing – where can you conveniently land and park your airplane?

Marco Island Executive Airport

One of the benefits of flying and parking your airplane in one of Marco Island Executive Airport hangars is that it’s affordable and they have specials that benefit you for the remaining part of your trip.

  • Single Engine Planes — Tie Down Fee $15.00 Daily and $70.00 Weekly
  • Multi Engine Planes — Tie Down Fee $20.00 Daily, and $90.00 Weekly

*ONE Night for parking waived if 50 gallons of gas is purchased.

Just minutes from everything Marco Island has to offer, this airport is safe and traffic free, ideal for our residents. Now, once you’ve landed and tied your aircraft down, if you don’t already have a vehicle waiting for you, the airport has a few rental car services.

What To Do Next?

In terms of where to stay, there are plenty of excellent hotels conveniently located near one of the roughly six or so beaches – then again, it’s hard for anything to not be near a beach on Marco Island. In the event that you aren’t looking for a beach visit, there are plenty of parks and golf courses alike to keep everyone in your party entertained.

For our residents that are more into the adventure side of things, they can participate in:

  • Camping
  • Self Guided Canoe Trip
  • Narrated Boat Trips
  • Fishing
  • Shelling Excursions

We highly recommend planning a trip to Marco Island from Ridge Landing Residential Airpark because when you have your own aircraft, you should take advantage of the flight opportunities that Florida is offering you.
