The Florida Keys & Key West

Enjoy natural beauty.

The only Florida key to get name-dropped in a Beach Boys song, Key Largo is an eco-tourism paradise. This northernmost spot on the island chain offers proximity to the Everglades and access to America's first underseas park, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park -- where spectacular diving and snorkeling await.

Fish & feast.

Comprised of several islands strung together by the Overseas Highway, Islamorada has been hailed the "Sport Fishing Capital of the World." Grab some bait, hire a boat and seize freedom on the open water, where prize-worthy sailfish reside. Sunsets here also get a standing ovation, whether viewed by boat or from an oceanfront restaurant.

Relax with the family.

Dolphin encounters are just one the many kid-friendly attractions that lure families to Marathon, a 10-mile-long island community where boating is a popular pastime. The midway point of the Florida Keys, it boasts "musts" such as Crane Point, Sombrero Beach -- and crossing Seven-Mile Bridge.

Explore the great outdoors.

The Lower Keys is home to Bahia Honda State Park on Big Pine Key, a favorite among campers and hikers who want an outdoorsy adventure within an exotic paradise. The island is also home to National Key Deer Refuge, a park dedicated to protecting the smaller, endangered cousin of Florida's White Tail Deer. Keep the cameras on standby for a sighting.

Embrace the quirky vibe.

Exquisite beauty and eccentric spectacles co-exist on Key West, where its most-famous former resident is celebrated during the colorful Hemingway Days (July 16-21). Grab your beer to go (it's legal here) before sprawling out on the beach or visiting landmarks such as Sloppy Joe's (above) and Hog's Breath Saloon.
