Have a Marco Island Thanksgiving

This year, ditch the stressful and lengthy dinner preparation. Avoid all of the bickering and planning so that you can focus on what really matters: spending time with family and friends. In typical island style, make the relaxing and laidback choice by going out for Thanksgiving dinner! On Marco Island, there is plenty of opportunity to make the most of the Thanksgiving spirit without any of the kitchen clean-up.
