Local Area Guide: Things to do / Activities / Attractions
The Florida Keys is an island paradise made up of 110 miles of islands connected by 42 causeways with the glistening waters of the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. Whether you're activity inclined or beach bound, the Florida Keys is a vacation destination of rich cultural heritage, natural wonders, world-class water sports, exhilarating family activities and a laid-back island tempo.
Switch to island time as you cross the drawbridge at Jewfish Creek to Key Largo, the first of the keys and home to the only living coral barrier reef in the US and the third largest in the world! Whether you`re in search of action-packed adventures or slow days lazing in a hammock under the palms, we`ve got the scoop on things to do in Key Largo and the Upper Keys!
Road-tripping the Florida Keys is pretty much on every travelers buckets list, even more so post-lockdown! Head south from your Key Largo bungalow rental through the Sport Fishing Capital of Islamorada and Long Key State Park to Marathon & the Middle Keys.
Old Mile Bridge marks the end of the Middle Keys and it`s a further 50 miles south to Key West. Passing through Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary and Big Pine Key`s National Key Deer Refuge, the journey is scenic and lands you in the most colorful town of the Florida Keys, the eclectic Key West.
