What to do in Florida Keys
There’s a certain irony to the fact that the Florida Keys’ Overseas Highway is the medium by which most people experience a place where land and sea merge. Starting at mile marker 127.5 and stretching out into the blue yonder all the way down to Key West, the road skirts dive shops, tacky tourist stands, marinas, and pristine state parks. You’re never far from the ocean, but get stuck in weekend traffic and you’d swear you’ve entered the seventh ring of commuting hell. Which is exactly why you should pack some swimming gear, fins, snorkel, a picnic... maybe even a tent... and plan to ditch the asphalt as often and as soon as you can. John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park on Key Largo and Bahia Honda State Park, just outside of Key West, are two great spots to dip your toes in the sand and start that car-free existence.
