Florida Keys - Top 3s please!

Going to the Keys in November, staying 4 nights at Casa Morada in Islamorada, so quite in the middle - a good base to explore either direction of the Keys I thought.

So, due to our limited time Im looking for your Top 3 Things to Do or See in any of the Keys - all those things we just should not miss!

We are not drinkers so not so fussed about Key West bar scene but up for tours, wildlife, beaches, water activities.

Look forward to hearing your thoughts...

Thanks
Claire

No1 for me will always be a walk along the old, disused 7 mile bridge. At the entrance there are plenty of Iguanas and when we walked on the bridge, a turtle swam underneath us.

No2. In Key West, Mel Fishers shipwreck museum. He really did find the fabled Spanish Treasure ship .. and treasure worth Billions. Plenty of it is in that museum (Atocha). Well worth a google!

No3. Just stroll around decadent Key West and soak it up! Home of Pan Am, Hemingways House, Key Lime pie, Beaches...

I'd recommend a day or half day at Bahia Honda State Park - lovely beach and snorkeling there, and the view of the broken bridge is pretty special!

In Key West, the trolley tram tour was pretty fun, a quick and easy way to see much of Key West with all the typical little houses. We also loved the butterfly house - it was so beautiful! We're not drinkers either, but definitely enjoyed our Key West day with these things!

Also, we had a great day renting a kayak from Robbie's in Islamorada. We kayaked out to Indian Key (I think that's what it was called), a little island just off the coast where you can see the ruins of an old settlement and do snorkeling. The water all the way there was pretty shallow and we saw lots of fish in the seagrass just kayaking along!

Oooh. Good thread!

We are going next year, and on our list is

*snorkelling at John Pennekamp

*Robbies for fishing boat trip (and feeding the tarpon!)

*Turtle Hospital

*Key Deer refuge

Sorry, that's 4 things! Mr H wants also to go to Ernest Hemmingways House but it's not made it on to my list yet!
