Give me sand. Give me sunshine. Give me the beach.
I will be escaping the chilly Cleveland air to experience my first visit to the Florida Keys. And let me tell you, I cannot wait.
The part I’m looking forward to most, you ask? The road trip. I’ve heard that the drive through the Keys is one of the best parts of visiting the islands. Who wouldn’t want to stare at the ocean for hours and make pitstops at the local hangouts?
I’ll be starting in Key Largo and am really excited to visit John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. It’s known as one of the best places to snorkel. Don’t like to snorkel? I hear they have glass-bottom boats, too! There are so many options to experience the ocean, so there’s something for everyone.
After Key Largo, I’ll be making the trek down to Key West. Across the Seven Mile Bridge I go. (Jumping with joy!) Along the way, stops will be made in Marathon and Islamorada. To do what? I don’t know yet. But why not just stop and enjoy the view? That’s supposed to be the lifestyle of the Keys, right? Relaxation at its finest!
Share your suggestions on what I should do in the comments! It’s my first time visiting and am open to anything. Until then, I sit and wait for the day to come where my plane leaves the ground.
