Absolutely, yes! There are a thousand and one reasons to take some Florida Keys tours or just wander around and explore the Keys for yourself. The Florida Keys are one of the most popular vacation and retirement spots in the entire country – and with good reason! If you’re considering a trip down to the Keys, we can highly recommend taking our self-guided tour of Seven Mile Bridge, and seeing the sights of the islands for yourself.
On the top of our list of reasons to visit the Florida Keys has to be the gorgeous scenic beaches there. From Bahia Honda to John Pennekamp State Park, the Keys have some of the most strikingly beautiful and relaxing tropical beaches in the entire world. The warm, piercingly blue water, soft sands, and sunlight combine to make an experience you won’t forget.
Are you interested in something a little more active? The Florida Keys, particularly the island of Islamorada, are known as the sportfishing capital of the world and attract fishermen and women from across the globe. Whether you’re an expert angler or looking to give fishing a try for the first time, there’s no place better than the Florida Keys to reel in a big one.
The Keys also feature some of the world’s finest snorkeling and diving areas as well, and people travel from all over to get a look at the sea life and gorgeous coral reefs just under the surface of the water. Take it from us – even if you’ve never snorkeled before, make sure you try it before leaving the Keys.
Finally, at the end of the island chain is Key West, which has some of the nation’s finest bars, restaurants, and cafes. Whether you’re looking for an upscale restaurant to rival Manhattan’s finest, or a dive bar once frequented by Ernest Hemingway, Key West has something for you.
