When it comes to taking a holiday that is a little bit different from the norm, you may think that Florida is unable to fit the bill. However, if you can look beyond the main theme parks in Florida, you will find that there is a great deal to see and do in the area. If you are looking for a different type of Florida holiday, the Florida Keys can provide you with a trip that will live with you for ever.
The Florida Keys have sometimes been referred to as the Caribbean of America and there is a whole host of worthwhile activities and recreational pursuits available on the islands. While The Florida Keys has a collective charm about it, every individual island has something of merit, allowing people to find the island that meets their needs perfectly. With a span of more than 110 miles, there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy what the Florida Keys has to offer, all year round.
If you are travelling from Miami, Key Largo will be the first island that you come across. The John Pennekamp State Park is one of the most popular attractions in Key Largo and there are a number of guided tours in this part of the country. If you want to dive and see sunken wrecks, this is the place for you. In fact, Key Largo is renowned for offering a wide range of snorkelling and diving opportunities, making it a perfect destination for people who like excitement and adventure on their holiday.
The Florida Keys provides year round fun
There is no bad time to visit the Florida Keys but if you don’t have children, it makes sense to travel out with the school holiday seasons. September and October breaks can provide the perfect climate and setting at a very affordable price. Similarly, March and May, omitting April to avoid the Easter breaks, can provide people with the ideal climate and setting to really enjoy their break to the Florida Keys.
If you would prefer to take a fishing trip, heading beyond Key Largo to Islamorada, an island with a strong reputation for sport fishing. There are plenty of fishing tournaments and angling competitions taking place every season. There is even a range of offshore fishing events lined up for the winter months if that is when you are heading to Florida.
If that all sounds like too much action and adventure, heading further south will provide you with the chance to relax and take it easy. The Lower Florida Keys and Big Pine Key provide as comfortable and as laid back a life as you can hope to find. The Florida climate is made to be enjoyed and in this part of the Florida Keys, you can enjoy the beach, laze around on boats and dance into the small hours of the night. No matter what sort of break you are hoping for, the Florida Keys has so much to offer.
Then again, an increasing number of people are organising twin centre holidays between the Florida Keys and Orlando. This means that the trip can take in the theme parks and major tourist destinations of Orlando while providing something a little bit different. For many people, a trip to Florida represents a once in a lifetime opportunity, so it makes sense to cram in as much as possible.
With careful planning and a high intensity, it is possible to cram in a lot of fun and excitement into one week in Orlando. Rather than spreading the theme park fun out over two weeks, it can be of benefit to spend the other week in the Florida Keys. If you are trying to plan a holiday to suit everyone in your family and you are struggling to please everyone, a twin centre break could be the perfect solution.
Florida has a lot more to offer than many people think and it may be that a Florida Keys Holiday is the perfect solution.
