What Makes the Florida Keys a Great Vacation Destination?

There’s a reason why so many people fall in love with the Florida Keys after just one visit. Located just 15 miles south of Miami and continuing for more than 120 miles, the Keys offer guests an abundance of sunny skies, sprawling beaches, and interesting wildlife. Of course, the coral cay archipelago offers many other amazing sights and attractions. Here are just some of the things that make the Florida Keys a leading vacation destination.


Top Activities and Attractions

There’s no shortage of fun things to do and see while in the Florida Keys. Start your travels in the Lower Florida Keys at Bahia Honda State Park. This is one of the southernmost state parks and offers guests a scenic destination to relax and enjoy the beautiful beaches, warm waters, and abundant wildlife.


In Islamorada, you’ll find even more things to do, such as visit the Theater of the Sea. This premier attraction features interactive exhibits and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, such as swimming with dolphins.


The Florida Keys have a rich history that visitors can learn about by visiting one of several museums spread throughout the Keys. In Islamorada, you’ll discover the History of Diving Museum which showcases diving helmets, photographs, and other memorabilia. The Florida Keys History and Discovery Center offers even more history, along with a movie theater, research library, and array of exhibits for kids and adults.


Water-related activities are popular in the Florida Keys, especially diving and kayaking. Book an eco-tour and explore the lush landscape and natural habitats where wildlife coexists. Snorkeling cruises allow guests to take a boat trip in scenic areas, as well as snorkel along a reef.

Renting a Luxury Vacation Home

When it comes to accommodations in the Florida Keys, you have several options. While Airbnb, VRBO, and similar rental marketplaces have their perks, they cannot compare to private luxury vacation homes. There’s nothing quite like staying in a beachfront home that offers awe-inspiring views of the ocean. Many of these properties are also within walking distance to private white sand beaches and walking piers.

Rest and relaxation are never a problem when you stay at a luxury vacation home. These properties are equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, such as plush sofas, thick mattresses, ample dining areas, and outdoor terraces where you can enjoy the ocean breeze. These spacious homes also provide bedrooms and bathrooms for every gift, ensuring that all travelers have their privacy.
You can also expect luxury amenities when you stay in a Florida Keys vacation home. From gated residences and lagoon-style swimming pools to private elevators to residences and heated jacuzzi tubs, there are plenty of features designed to make your stay as convenient as possible.
