Marco Island’s Esplanade and Smokehouse Bay
An afternoon at Marco Island’s Esplanade and Smokehouse Bay is an all inclusive treat. Let’s start the afternoon off shopping in the unique shops in the Esplanade. This italian-style village consists of upscale retailers and small specialty stores. The architectural detail is beautiful and colorful. The lush landscaping and fountains add to the retail experience.
The Esplanade is located on North Collier Boulevard, Marco Island’s main street. The area has more than 1,100 feet of waterfront on Smokehouse Bay. There is retail and office space, 72 multi-family waterfront residences and a 77-boat slip marina. Visitors at the Esplanade are treated to the promenade along the waterfront and a courtyard opening to the water. Let’s not forget the beautiful marina and great dining and shopping!
Smokehouse Bay Dining
Two of my favorite Marco Island Restaurants are located in the Esplanade. Dining at CJs or Mangos offers a delicious meal while dining waterfront. Be sure to take your camera as this is one of the most beautiful places on the island to capture a great sunset picture over the marina and Smokehouse Bay. It is a very relaxing spot to have an after dinner drink as the sun slowly sinks below the horizon.
End the evening with an ice cream cone at Cold Stone Creamery as the evening is winding down.
