Weekend Getaway: Key Largo Edition

6 Dec

Key Largo is home to the only living reef in the continental U.S. and is a great spot for divers and snorkelers alike.  John Pennekamp Coral Reef Park offers many ways to explore the reefs, marine life, and shipwrecks.  Not one to get your head underwater?  You can always venture out on a glass bottom boat tour to viewthe world beneath the ocean.

Swim with a sea lion and dolphins at Dolphin Plus.  Dolphin Plus offers structured and open water natural swims.  Visitors can participate in both if they’d like.  You can alsos be a trainer marine biologist for the day to learn more about the facility and animals.  This adventure may be a little more on the costly side but it is definitely something everyone should experience. 

Outside the waters, visitors can hike and camp in the Everglades National Park.  This park is the third largest park in the continental United States and has been declared a Nationa Heritage Site.  Everglades National Park is home to many species of birds, fresh, brackish, and saltwater fish,  mammals and reptiles.  HIkers have many paths to chose from in varying degrees of dificulty.
