If you are about to open a new business in the Florida Keys or buy an existing business in the Florida Keys, you should become familiar with key tourist attractions. After all, a business owner who can direct tourists to cool locations will be appreciated that much more by customers. One of the popular tourist attractions for those visitors who love history is the Florida Keys History & Discovery Center.
The Florida Keys History & Discovery Center, pictured below, is the building for the Florida Keys History and Discovery Foundation. The Foundation was formed about six years ago and the Center is already gaining in popularity. So, pointing this out to visitors to the Keys who have been vacationing here for decades can impress them. Not only will you be pointing them to a new place they might not have seen yet, but if they have been visiting the Keys for a long time, the Center might bring back some very fond memories of a Florida Keys experience from their past. The Discovery Center can be found on the property of the Islander Resort.
Here visitors will find permanent exhibits that take a look at the history of the Florida Keys including the following topics:

  • Legends of the Line
  • First People
  • Spanish Treasure Fleets
  • Pirates/Wreckers/Salvagers
  • Indian Key
  • Henry Flagler’s Over-Sea Railway
  • Stories of the Upper Keys
  • 1935 Labor Day Hurricane.

The Center also has space for rotating exhibits and a state of the art movie theatre that shows interesting documentaries about the area. If you see a tourist that looks like he just needs to get out of the sun for a bit, this is a great place to direct him towards.
