Just off the coast of Miami is a border island called Key Biscayne. The city is situated between two parks: Crandon Park and Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. Key Biscayne makes for a premiere vacation destination!
With two parks on either side of the city, going to both is a must! Crandon Park has a beautiful stretch of clean and quiet beach for those wanting to get away from the crowds. Plus, there’s plenty of parking available. The Bill Braggs Cape Florida State Park also has pristine beaches and bird watching. While you’re there, you can tour the Cape Florida Lighthouse that was originally built in 1825 and stands ninety-five feet tall. Since you’re so close to the water, getting out on it is a definite! Check out Miami Bonefishing Tours, Biscayne Charters and Tropical Escape Yacht Charters to book your day on the ocean. Miami Seaplane Tours offers you the chance to get a birds-eye view of the coast and ocean, which could be fun for the whole family. In addition, there’s plenty of diving and snorkeling to do while vacationing in Key Biscayne. However, if you prefer to keep your distance from the fish, go to the Miami Seaquarium and observe underway life without getting wet. Now, you will be busy here, but don’t forget to eat! Here are some restaurant suggestions for when your tummy start to rumble: Rusty Pelican, Kebo Restaurant, Tutto Pizza Pasta, Costa Med, Novecento, and El Gran Inka.
If you’re traveling with the family, then a trip to Disney World and/or Universal is a must! With constantly changing rides and additions, these parks never get old and always bring out the child in all of us! There are also cities like Port St. Lucie, West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale that can be explored in a day. Take a day to tour the Everglades on an airboat and see the alligators, birds, and other wildlife! Also the Florida Keys are not too far away by car. Key Largo is about an hour’s drive and Key West is about three hours away. And wouldn’t you make that drive for world famous key lime pie? Actually all the food is great here! With Key Biscayne as your starting point, there are so many different places to go explore.
