Marco Island for kids

I'm spending a long weekend with my 7 year old daughter. Any suggestions on where we can go for fun. She loves amusement parks although I'm not sure where the closest one is.

I am no expert on Marco only been once but I did not see any parks ? it seemed mainly a quiet place for sunbathers,fishermen,golfers I think the nearest you would get is taking an airboat ride in the glades but it is a magic place cannot wait to get back there

The closest amusement park is in Tampa Busch Gardens a 2 hour drive north. Marco and Naples cater to the beach, restaurant, shopping,& golf crowd. Naples has Caribbean Gardens which is the Naples version of a zoo. There is available in The Glades several airboat/swamp buggy tour companies.Ft Myers offers The Imaginarium a hands on children's museum. Cape Coral offers Sunsplash a water park. Other then an amusement park what are your daughter's likes?

No amusement parks on Marco. Mackle Park, the city's "central" park has a great new kid inspired, community build "Kid's Cove" playground.

There is a Naples Zoo which is entertaining, but NOT a "big time" zoo.

There is an Imaginarium in Ft. Myers.
