The Florida Keys are making a comeback and are quickly garnering interest from travellers, especially snowbirds looking for somewhere new to visit during the winter. It is one of the most diverse and beautiful areas in the entire state, and it has countless resorts to choose from.
“The temperature averages 27.7°C year-round, water sports from paddle-boarding and snorkelling to deep-sea fishing are virtually unparalleled, and there’s no shortage of beach-inspired relaxation among the guava trees and coconut palms,” says Rochelle Lash in the National Post.
Given its scenic highway drives, huge investment in new resort developments, aquatic life and the fact that this is the only place in the United States with a living coral reef, it’s not surprising that it’s a tourist spot gaining in popularity.
Other places worth considering include Bahia Honda Key, Conch Key, Duck Key and Little Torch Key.
No matter where you stay in the Florida Keys, all the top attractions are only a short, scenic drive away. Some of the top things to do here include:
The busy tourist time is from Christmas to Easter. Summer is also a popular time for travellers. However, if you want to beat the crowds, get better hotel rates and still have great weather, it is best to visit from November to mid-December.
If you plan to fly, you can get connecting flights from Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
