Florida Keys Activities
907 Whitehead St., Key West
Visiting Key West without making a pilgrimage to the Ernest Hemingway Home and gardens (and the resident family of six-toed cats) is kind of blasphemous. Much of the interior and a smattering of personal possessions from Hemingway’s years on the estate are lovingly salvaged originals. Don’t skimp on the tour as the guides are extremely well versed in Hem trivia.
John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park
102601 Overseas Highway, Key Largo
The tropical waters of Key West are home to some of the most protected living coral reefs in the country. There are tons of outfits offering kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, and even glass-bottom boat tours, but we like the in-house folks at John Pennekamp, which is a massive underwater park (statues, sculptures, and the like) that justifies the drive. They’re also nicely attuned to visitors’ wishes and skill-levels.
