Living in Florida surely has its benefits. While the minutes of cool air are far and few in between, we’re surrounded by beautiful beaches, gorgeous palm trees, and ocean view sunsets. We live in a place where people love to vacation to, to relax and have fun in the sun. What I love about Florida is that there are so many spots to get away for a quick weekend staycation and feel like you’re somewhere completely different.

This was the first time Casey, Harley, and I have been to Marco Island as a family, which I can’t believe because it’s an easy peasy 2 hour drive. After traveling to Boston with 100 pounds of luggage, I was determined to pack lightly this time around. I’ve been a huge fan of Barrington Gifts for forever, so was ecstatic when they gifted me the Savannah Tote and Captain’s Bag from their new Fall Monogram collection.

Their bags and other items [such as wallets and accessory cases] are all customizable with different pattern options and different initial or monogram styles. Every time I see a new pic posted on their Instagram, I’m like “oooooh, I should have gotten that pattern!” With the holidays coming up [which I still CAN NOT believe! Can you?!!], personalizing a tote, laptop case, or travel bag would be such great gift for someone special!

We stayed at the Charter Club of Marco Beach. Casey and I actually invested in a timeshare through Hilton after getting engaged 5 years ago, and this is one of the properties they manage. It’s definitely an older, more quiet crowd. Almost every family we talked to said they’ve been going there for 20+ years, before Hilton took it over. The location was perfect though. Just a few buildings down from the Marriott Beach Resort, which is where mostly everyone I know stays at when traveling to Marco. Having the ability to stay at a place with a full kitchen and separate living and dining room spaces has come in handy when traveling with Harley, so we’ve been really happy being Hilton Grand Vacation members! Our next timeshare travel spot will be in Tuscany, Italy next May!

Anyway, if you have plans to go to Marco Island in the near future, I’d recommend splurging a night and eating at Marco Prime if you can. Marco is a really small town with not a whole lot to do. This was by far our best dining experience there. Harley actually grabbed my petite filet with her bare hands and started chowing down as if it was the first time I fed her all day!

It’s amazing what a few days away can do for your mind and soul! I love traveling with this little family of mine and creating memories we’ll cherish forever. We will definitely be back Marco!
