Become friends with herons, owls, pelicans and egrets at the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center, a bird rehabilitation facility located in Tavernier at mile marker (MM) 93.6. The Upper Keys landmark is home to more than 100 ill, injured or orphaned wild birds — all housed in a natural setting on more than 5 acres of land. The main attraction is the daily pelican feeding, set for 3:30 p.m. and typically drawing hundreds of wild pelicans hungry for fish. The Florida Keys Wild Bird Center is open daily during daylight hours. While no admission is charged for entry, donations are requested.
The Middle Keys:
In the Middle Keys, KeysCaribbean Luxury Resorts & Marinas has the Village at Hawks Cay Villas on Duck Key, Indigo Reef Resort Villas & Marina and the Coral Lagoon Resort Villas & Marina vacation rentals in Marathon\
No visit to the Florida Keys is complete without a ride on the Conch Tour Train, entertaining visitors and families in Key West since 1958. During your stay, even if it is a day trip to Key West on a cruise ship, get a conch’s eye view of the southernmost city’s attractions and interesting stops as you tour with the ‘engineers’ and helpful staff aboard the train trolleys. Kids 12 and under ride free, and discounts for military and seniors are available.
The Lower Keys:
In the Lower Keys, KeysCaribbean Luxury Resorts & Marinas has the Coral Hammock Resort Villas and Kings Point Marina & Condominiums vacation rentals
Pet a shark at the Key West Aquarium, located at 1 Whitehead St. adjacent to renowned Mallory Square. The aquarium opened in 1934 and was one of the first family-friendly attractions in the Keys. Unique and inviting, the Key West Aquarium is home to grouper, moray eels, barracuda, tropical fish, tarpon, sharks, parrotfish and more. The touch tank features small sea creatures that children can touch and feed. The aquarium offers guided tours that include shark feeding and even an opportunity for guests to touch or “pet” a shark. Guided tours take place daily at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., and 4:30 p.m.
