It’s one way to escape your day-to-day feeling while still being in the same state. There are many things to do and places to stay in the Keys! It all depends on how far south you’d like to drive.

If you don’t to drive too far, make your way down to Key Largo! It’s northern most and largest Florida Key and it boasts activities. You’ll find both onshore activities and under the sea exploring. There are two state parks to explore, and part of the national marine sanctuary. However, one of the best things to do while in Key Largo is snorkeling and scuba diving! You’ll get to observe hundreds unbelievable tropical creatures and breathtaking coral formations! Not to mention that there are a few military ships sunken by the island to create artificial reefs for you to scuba dive and explore!
Since it is one of the biggest islands you’ll find that you have a couple of options for accommodations. You can choose to be in resort style stay, in a vacation home depending on how big your party is, or you may even explore the underwater hotel! Regardless of where you’re staying, make sure to pack a bathing suit because we’re sure you’ll be in the water most of the time.
If you’re feeling adventurous and want to travel down all the way to the southernmost tip of the United States, head down to Key West! Only 90 miles away from Cuba, Key West provides you with a subtropical paradise! Not only is this subtropical island beautiful for a fun day in the sun, it’s also packed with history and night life! If you’re a fan of a good book, make sure to stop by Hemingway’s Key West home, now turned into a literary museum. You can also be mesmerized by the centuries old Spanish homes! However, once the sun sets hit the streets! They’re filled with open bars, pubs, restaurants, and happy people! You’re sure to have a fantastic time!
