Road Trip Florida : Islamorada, Florida Keys

During our road trip through Florida we visited Islamorada. People come here for fishing, deep sea diving and snorkelling. Islamorada is part of Florida Keys.

The Florida Keys are a string of tropical islands stretching about 120 miles off the southern tip of the U.S. state of Florida, between the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico (refer map above). They’re known as a destination for fishing, boating, snorkelling and scuba diving. The southernmost city of Key West is famous for Duval Street’s many bars, Mallory Square’s nightly Sunset Celebration and the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum.

When you are driving through Florida Keys, it’s like driving on a strip of land bisecting the sea.

At Islamorada while Shruti my daughter and her children engaged in adventure sports, I got busy with my camera. Sharing few snaps of the place.

Before checking in to the resort where we were to stay, we visited the ‘Theater of the Seas’ to watch a dolphin show. The Dolphins put up an amazing show.

This is the cottage we rented and stayed in. This was a nice resort with beautiful seascapes.

Islamorada lends itself to some pretty seascapes.

The sunrise and sunset here are amazing too.

While walking along the seaside I came across these Iguanas and birds.

While at Islamorada, do make it a point to visit the ‘Robbie’s’. This is a nice place to enjoy some hearty breakfast, engage in Tarpon feeding and enjoy watching the pelicans waiting for their share of fishes.

Next we moved on to Key West, the southern most town in the Florida Keys. More about it in my next blog.
