Three Reasons You Need A Road Trip Through The Florida Keys
- Key Largo
The Florida Keys are full of rich and unusual history and tourist attractions – far more than your average beach vacation, and they are waiting to bring out your inner explorer! In Key Largo, you’ll want to stop at the first undersea park in the country! This is a hands- on activity when you visit John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park – you will be able to kayak through the waters, snorkel and scuba dive, and you can also take a tour on a glass-bottom boat, where you never know what marine life or treasure you might see!
Islamorada is full of rich mystery from the Keys’ thousands of years old history. The artifacts of the Keys are on display at The Keys History and Discovery Center, where you can learn all about the natives who inhabited the area, and learn about the ways they lived for thousands of years, as well as see and explore artifacts of very early shipwrecks, and other mysteries of the sea. The Keys tell an amazing story of discovery and survival – and can offer a very enriching experience for young and old alike.
If you love Dolphins, you can get your fill of learning about these intelligent marine mammals at the Dolphin Research Center that is located on Grassy Key, which is near the city of Marathon, Florida. You will be able to chat with experienced dolphin trainers and you even have an opportunity to swim with dolphins. If you have school-age children, you might want to consider enrolling your budding marine biologist in Dolphin Camp! Who says school is the only place to learn? These enriching activities will stimulate the imagination of individuals of all ages.
