Day 1 - Big Pine Key, Key West, Lower Sugarloaf Key


Who would have thought that bats would be of interest? Well, the story behind the bat tower is unusually funny - The lower Keys are called the Natural Keys, for good reason. Soak it in, bring the binocs for closeups of the gorgeous birds and wildlife that abound. Check into one of the Keys' "green" accommodations - super friendly staff that genuinely care about the surrounding natural beauty.

Day 3 - Big Pine Key


Snorekling and/or diving is as much a pasttime as sportfishing here in the Keys. Looe Key is a major part of the marine sanctuary, and is host to the Underwater Music Festival every July. Pizza, pizza, pizza! No Name Pub is THE best.
