Some reasons why we go to the Florida Keys every year.

by Martha & Family
(Louisville, Kentucky, US)

These are some of the main reasons why we come to the Florida Keys every year in the first place. To snorkel and scuba dive in the reefs of Pennekamp’s Underwater world, kayaking along the shore line, catch tropical fish in the morning and cook at the camp sites of Key Largo or the Lower Keys.
My husband loves fishing, my two sons snorkeling and I do scuba diving every now and then.
Last year we headed up for the wacky under water music festival of Big Pine Key, visited the Little Palm Island Resort and eat lunch at the great restaurant there, took of pictures of the key deer in the Big Pine Key areas where the deer wander at down, and we also visited most of the historic places in Key West, the Hemingway House, Fort Zachary and its beach, the Ship Wreck Museum, the Art and History Museums. More recently this year we attended the Marathon Seafood Festival and Sombrero Beach in Marathon Key.
We love Key West but this year we are going to be in Islamorada since my husband wants to graduate into the big fishing league and probably compete in some of the tournaments there.
But we know that when we go to the Florida Keys it’s going to be fun on the sun.
Chao! See you there.

The Southern Most Hotel in Key West

by Jim & Sara
(New York City.)

I want to tell you about the Southermost Hotel in Key West.
We booked this hotel through Expedia. It was one of the nicest hotels we have stayed during any of our vacations in the Florida keys. If we come back to Key West we would stay there. Convenient and within walking distance to Duval Street, the Southermost Point, Beach and Bars. We visited the Hemingway House and the Key West Historic Light House at once!
It was a memorable vacation!

Our review of Coral Lagoon Resort in Marathon, Florida Keys.

by Frank and Judy
(of Kenner, Louisiana)

We really enjoyed our stay at the Coral Lagoon Resort and Marina in Marathon, Florida Keys for our honeymoon! We were deciding between Key West and here and I am so glad we chose this waterfront resort for many reasons. Besides that we had visited Key West before during the Fantasy Fest, and this was something new and different for us.
We loved all the restaurants in the area, the marina, the outdoor pool, beach beds, the service, high speed internet access is available etc. Besides the resort is close to Sombrero Beach, the Dolphin Research Center, Crane Point, walk over the 7 Mile Historic Bridge and to other places of interest in the Florida Keys or go fishing if you like; we couldn't not have had a more enjoyable experience. We stayed in a normal guest room with balcony, kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, cookware and ditches and Housekeeping was available daily.
Overall, a great experience and fantastic service!

Our time at "Tranquility Bay Beach House Resort"

Just had a great three days stay at the Beach side part of the Tranquility Bay Beach Resort in Marathon, Florida Keys. I had no idea the resort had so much to offer.
My husband and I stayed here, it’s a beautiful resort and the staff was great. We met several very nice people vacationing like us, they all very friendly right off the bat.
We stayed near the warm water beach side which was beautiful, sandy beach, great lagoon swimming pool and a beautiful landscape. It was also nice though to go on a fishing trip and go over the other areas of the Keys, so much charm, we ate dinner at the main resort’s restaurant both nights and also at the Island Fish Co, and had great meals. Loreley Cabana Bar Restaurant in Islamorada was outstanding. Sunset Grille and Bar in Knights Key was also outstanding and fun.

All personnel we encountered were very friendly. We did walk around quite a bit, rented kayaks and two Yamaha wave runners, had a great time!

Can't wait to go back someday soon!
