Looking for a tropical getaway this year? Look no further than the Florida Keys!

This 165 mile stretch from Miami to Key West is slam packed with sunshine and adventure!

First stop, Key Largo! Be sure and visit John Pennekamp State Park and take a boat trip out to the coral reef where you can snorkel with sea turtles and sharks!

Next stop, Islamorada. At Theater of the Sea, you get so take a bottomless boat ride through the dolphin pool. Watch mesmerizing performances from the resident parrots, sea lion, and dolphins. And if you have some free time on your hands, they have a small swim beach and concession stand as well!

Haven’t had your fix for adventure? Maybe a little tarpon feeding will solve that. Robbie’s marina offers tarpon feeding around back. These behemoths will leap out of the water to snatch fish from your hands. Oh, and beware the pelicans, they’re hungry too!

All that sun and entertainment might make you thirsty, so swing by the Florida Keys Brewing Co. for a refreshing drink. They serve flights of beer and ale so you can sample some of their best brews.

You can’t leave Islamorada without a picture with Betsy the lobster over at the Rain Barrel Village located right off of the overseas highway.

Be sure to eat at the Lorelei Restaurant and Cabana Bar. Outdoor seating provides a great view of the sunset over the gulf. They offer live music from great performers to serenade you while you dine. And don’t forget to order a Key Lime Colada.

Next up, Marathon! The Turtle Hospital provides educational and interactive tours of the facility, definitely a worthwhile experience!

You can’t go to the fishing capital of the world and not throw a line in. Swing by one of the local table shops and gear up before reeling in some exotic catches!

And now, for your final destination, Key West.

There are some must-see attractions in Key West. First, get your tickets to the Ship Wreck Treasure Museum AND the Aquarium. That’s right, you can bundle and save on tickets. Next up, the Maritime Museum just across the street. Full of history and displays, it is well worth a visit.

Now it’s time to hit the road. Walk on down to Kermitt’s for some Key Lime pie on a stick, and enjoy it witg the coy fish around back.

Not far from there, the Southern Most Point. Get a quick pic next to the huge buoy that marks the spot, and look out to see if you can spot Cuba in the distance!

If you don’t feel like walking, the Conch Train tours offer an educational tour of the city. The guides are knowledgeable and friendly!

And there you have it ladies and gentlemen! A full itinerary of the Florida Keys. Be sure and plan your next vacation accordingly. Don’t forget to pack sunscreen!
