The Florida Keys boasts breathtaking scenery unlike anywhere else in the United States as well as an abundance of marine life making it one of the best known travel destinations globally. Much of the island chain is easily traversed by Overseas Highway spanning 113 miles from Key Largo to Key West. The Florida Keys has an astounding variety of activities to guarantee every member of the family can enjoy their getaway. Read below for more information regarding each island location we feature.

  • Key Largo:

    Otherwise known as the Diving Capital of the World. John Pennekamp State Park spans 70 nautical square miles encompassing the only living coral barrier reef in North America. There are numerous diving facilities in the area capable of training first-timers to experience the world’s first undersea park. If diving isn’t on your itinerary, we highly recommend Cruisin’ Tikis. Stay comfortably dry from the bar on your very own floating cabana. Key Largo is also a short distance from Everglades National Park where guided eco-tours provide a look at the diverse flora and fauna responsible for designating this area as an environment worth preserving.
